***Update 3/11/19. This campaign has reactivated***


Our hearts are HUGE but our walls and shelves are empty.  On March 5th Onahan Elementary School suffered a fire in the main school building.  We are incredibly grateful there were no injuries but our teachers, staff and students are devastated. Classrooms were emptied.  Students were riding buses to alternate schools daily.  Teachers with 25 years of materials will be starting from scratch.  We need help from our amazing community to rebuild Onahan. The Onahan pride is strong!


We have communicated with Chicago Public Schools and they are fully committed to funding the replacement of all instructional materials, technology, and furniture that was damaged. They are already working with the CPS Warehouse and vendors to secure replacements. We thank CPS for the support that they have provided in getting our children back to Onahan as fast as possible.  We’d also like to thank the workers who have put in extra hours to begin restocking the school. While this is a large step in the rebuilding process, we hope to replace the heart of Onahan as well.


No fundraising dollars will go towards completing the work that CPS has committed to providing. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards providing replacements of the materials that made our classrooms feel like home to our kids.  The Onahan teachers’ have lost almost all of their personal items that were accumulated over years and even decades. It’s these things that made the walls of Onahan burst with pride. The Onahan administration will work with the Friends of Onahan to provide a list of these necessities that will then be purchased with the funds raised.


The kindness and generosity of the Onahan community and its partners is greatly appreciated by all.


This fundraiser will end on Friday, March 15, at 5 p.m.
