AUGUST 6, 2018 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Weigand-Omega Management and Omega Senior Living are excited to begin our 3rd Annual Teacher’s Dream List drive through the “My Neighbor’s Keeper” community service initiative! Each year teachers use their own money to buy items for their classroom, such as: decorations, fun gifts, furniture/seating options, games, and much more! We want to help provide our local teachers with what they really need for their class this fall. We are honored that we are able to provide a fun and interactive environment to help students reach their full learning potential.
Each of our managed apartments, senior living communities, hotels/resorts and several of our commercial buildings have their own dream lists that they are working to fulfill. Each property nation-wide (as well as our corporate office) have reached out to a school in their local community and have asked the school to select a teacher (or two) to compile a list of dream items that they need (and want). Our past dream lists have included exciting items such as: fish tanks (complete with fish), an Apple TV, 20 Ikea stools, art supply/organizing bins, bookshelves, bean bag chairs, digital cameras, and so much more. Most teachers that have been selected are brand new teachers and can use all the help they can get to fill their new classrooms!
Craig Hanson, President of Weigand –Omega and CEO of Omega Senior Living, stated that “Our goal is to provide items that can relieve a burden for our teachers and make each day special for the students in the communities where our associates live and work. Because we are a national company with over 100 locations, collectively as a whole we can impact a large number of kids while showing support to our teachers that play such a vital role in our society.”
Our Corporate office in Wichita reached out to Linwood Elementary and have received our two “adopted” teacher’s wish lists, and they are absolutely adorable! Items on their lists are located below – if you can help us purchase any of them, call us first to let us know so we can cross it off of the list.
If you would like to help, please contact any of our Weigand-Omega or Omega Senior Living managed properties, or call our corporate office at 316-239-6709. Join us and say proudly I AM My Neighbor’s Keeper!
