(Mustang, Oklahoma – August 15, 2019) – With school starting on Friday, August 16, 2019, Mustang Public Schools is seeing a groundswell of community support to help with the back to school efforts. Several organizations and community groups have worked on projects to help the schools get off to a great start:
Clear Springs Church hosted their annual Big Give where more than 650 students were able to stock up on school supplies, but they also generously gathered and donated supplies specifically for our BRAIN Program.
MA+ Architecture gathered supplies from their company employees and donated them for needy families. They also donated over $200 in gift cards for additional supplies.
Parent Group: Broncos Against Bullying collected supplies and donated a gift bag full to one teacher at each Mustang school.
Roan Resources chose to donate to Mustang Public Schools to make a difference in the community where they serve, according to Corporate Communications Advisor, Joan Anderson. They gathered supplies from employees and vendors and delivered them to Mustang Elementary.
The Mustang Chamber collected from local businesses and provided each of Mustang Public Schools’ new teachers a gift bag as a welcome to the community.
“We so appreciate this outpouring of support from our community,” Communications Director Kirk Wilson said. “We really are a family in Mustang, and embody the adage that it takes a village.”
