“I actually watched a lot of coverage about the Joplin tornado. I thought if this happened to me, I'd want someone to help,” said Jane Scoles, one of two Omaha Public Schools teachers behind Operation Back to School.
She and fellow Sunny Slope Elementary School teacher Chris Schnase decided to be the help.
Working with OPS and the Omaha Education Association, the two began the collection drive that will run through July 22.
Scoles and Schnase are working through the Adopt-a-School program of the Joplin-based nonprofit Bright Futures, which works hand-in-hand with Joplin Schools.
