WHO 13 Covid Relief Drive for Schools
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the education system and created many difficulties for school districts. From how to safely provide in-person learning to making sure students who are distance learning have the tools to do so — the financial impact on school districts is immense. WHO 13 wants to help connect those willing to donate money or items, with the schools and booster organizations in need. Please review the Donate page and select the area you’d like to support within the Urbandale Community School District. We are #thankful4U!
Yard Sign Fundraiser Supports Food Pantry & Foundation
This past spring, the Urbandale Education Foundation (UEF) partnered with Plaza Printers to create yard signs that recognized the remarkable Urbandale High School Class of 2020, dedicated Urbandale CSD teachers, and resilient Urbandale CSD students. In addition to being a great way to share Urbandale community spirit, the yard signs also served to support the Urbandale Food Pantry and the UEF as a portion of every sign purchase supported both organizations.
A total of $1,964 was donated to the Urbandale Food Pantry and $1,930 was raised in support of the UEF. The Urbandale Food Pantry provides food assistance to those in need and the Urbandale Education Foundation provides student scholarships and classroom grants throughout the Urbandale Community School District. The Urbandale Alumni Association and Urbandale Dollars for Scholars are also part of the UEF.
Thank you to our incredible Urbandale community who helped support this fun and meaningful project. Thank you to Plaza Printers who designed, printed, and helped distribute signs. Thank you to all of the many Urbandale CSD staff and UEF Board members who helped organize and deliver signs. It takes a village and we couldn’t be more grateful for the one we call home. #wesupportU
We Support U: Goal Achieved!
Thank you for helping us exceed our $30K fundraising goal! Your support helped raise $30,860 for student scholarships & classroom grants. Your donations are always welcome as we continue our support for students and teachers throughout the Urbandale Community School District.
While COVID-19 limited our ability to gather for our 7th Annual Brad Peyton Memorial Golf Tournament and 2nd Annual U-FEST that were scheduled this past summer, we’re still hopeful to be able to schedule events for future gatherings when it is safe to do so. As events get scheduled, we’ll share details here. We look forward to welcoming you!
