Gearing up for the Caring for Clinton campaign

Clinton Elementary School
Clinton Elementary School

Since 2007, the School of Natural Resources has gathered winter coats, warm gloves, pieces of clothing and monetary donations for students at Clinton Elementary, just up the street from Hardin Hall on 33rd Street.

The school, where 95 percent of its 500 students qualify for free- or reduced-price lunch, sees a higher percentage of families living in poverty than much of Lincoln. It sees families who are struggling to make ends meet and who are struggling to put food on the table.

This year, SNR is planning a January expansion of the event. The annual Caring for Clinton drive, mid-November through mid-December, will still raise money and provide warm clothes and coats to our elementary school neighbors, but in January, we'll host a food and toiletry drive for the school as well.

We'd love if you could contribute to any or all of these causes. All donations will be collected in the Hardin Hall main lobby, or check donations can be made. Checks can be written out to "Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools" with "Clinton Emergency Fund" on the ledger line and sent to:
