The Ormsby Association of Carson City (OACC), on behalf of the Carson City Schools Foundation (CCSF), was pleased to donate $5,304.30 to Mr. Lance Hendee, Comprehensive Life Skills (CLS) and Special Education teacher at Carson High School, for the school’s Alternate Standards Program.

OACC was started in Carson City by parents who realized that some children, including disabled children, did not have services and transportation they needed to attend school. The organization believes everyone deserves a chance to succeed and live in a safe environment and that food and shelter are basic human needs.

CCSF was created to increase student achievement through philanthropic investment and involvement. Established by the Carson City School District’s Board of Trustees, the foundation promotes education programs that traditional funding sources may not be able to reach. CCSF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting community involvement and investment in the public schools of Carson City.
