Omni Middle School’s PTSA held a $2 for T today to raise money for Haitian relief.
We were only expecting to raise around $1,500, but the generosity of our students,
faculty and parents has once again surfaced. We exceeded our goal and raised
over $4,492! Additional money has been donated since our “official” count this
morning and we now have in excess of $4,500. Students were giving 5′s, 10′ and
20′s and telling us to keep the change! Parents wrote checks. One student even
gave all his birthday money…over $140!
The PTSA will continue to collect money next week. The fundraising will end
Friday, January 22nd with another $2 for T. This is an event where students pay
$2 to wear a T-shirt to school. This is a big deal since Omni has a dress code.
Omni’s PTSA will donate ALL the proceeds to “Doctors without Borders”.
President, Omni PTSA
