Throughout the school year, Legacy School Omaha partners with several non-profit organizations in Omaha and beyond. This project is called the Giving Tree Project. This month’s Giving Tree Project is collecting toys for Project Harmony Omaha!
Giving Tree Project: Legacy School Partners with Project Harmony Omaha
What is the Giving Tree Project?
When Legacy School first opened in 2008, administrators Buffy Baca and Kelly Pedersen knew they wanted to implement a program for their students and families to give back to the Omaha community. Shortly after, the idea of the Giving Tree Project was born. Based on the book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, the Giving Tree Project gives us the ability to bring joy and love to the Omaha community and beyond.

How long does the donation run?
The donation runs from Tuesday, December 1st- Friday, December 11th. The toys will be picked up soon after the 11th to be brought to Project Harmony in Omaha.
Where do your toy donations go?
Your donations will go directly to children that come to Project Harmony in Omaha. When a child arrives at Project Harmony, they receive a medical exam and are asked a few questions. Once the child has finished with his/her appointment, they get to choose a toy and a blanket. Getting this toy/blanket is the highlight of their time at Project Harmony!
Where do we drop off our donations?
Legacy School has decorated donation bins located in the main entrance of the school. Donations can be sent with your child, and your child’s teacher/teacher assistant will assist your student in getting the donations into the baskets.
Thank you in advance for your kind donations this holiday season! Legacy School and the Omaha community thanks you.
