Polk County Public Schools took in $12,071 as part of a district-wide fundraiser to benefit Oklahoma’s Moore School District. The money raised will go towards supporting the school district as it recovers from a devastating tornado that hit the Oklahoma City suburb on May 20.

In just two-weeks, the Polk Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) direct support organization for the Polk County School Board, students, staff and faculty members raised that money. Community donations accounted for $2,000. Additionally, in partnership with KidsPack, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to meeting the needs of disadvantaged youth, and Browning Moving & Storage, a household and commercial moving company, the community banded together to collect items such as backpacks, pre-cooked meals, apparel, and flashlights.
