Omaha Steaks, the nation’s leading purveyor of exceptional premium beef and gourmet foods, announced today an innovative new partnership with Schoola, the leading fundraising solution that turns quality clothing into money for schools across the country. The two companies are teaming up to enable consumers to “green” their purchases by giving both their Omaha Steaks cooler and their gently used clothes a second life.

“Through our new partnership with Schoola, customers will be able to use their Omaha Steaks cooler to easily make a clothing donation, raise funds for their school of choice and recycle the cooler at the same time,” said Senior Vice President and family owner, Todd Simon.

Making a donation is easy:
1)    Empty your Omaha Steaks cooler and fill it with freshly laundered, gently used, high-quality women’s and children’s clothing.
2)    Attach the pre-paid shipping label provided in your Omaha Steaks cooler including the sticker completed with your information and the school you would like the donation to benefit.
3)    Completely seal your cooler with packing tape and drop it off at your local post office! Once the donation is received, Schoola will sort, spiff-up and sell the clothes on Schoola.com and 40 percent of the proceeds will go directly to the school you selected. They will also recycle your cooler for you.

“We are thrilled to partner with Omaha Steaks to reach more consumers nationwide to help kids by raising funds for programs like music, art, P.E. in schools through clothing donations,” said Stacey Boyd, parent, former teacher and school principal and founder of Schoola.

“It’s the perfect time to do a little cleaning in preparation for the season ahead. Clean out your closets and donate your unused women’s and children’s clothing to raise money for your selected school,” Simon added.

Already, Schoola has raised funds for more than 200,000 schools nationwide.

About Schoola
Schoola was founded by a parent, former teacher and school principal who saw firsthand how children who struggled in math could come alive in music class. How art, physical education and foreign language could have a profound effect on students. And how hard it was to get funds to support these programs. Dedicated to putting paintbrushes, books, baseballs and violins back into the hands of children, Schoola was launched in Spring 2013. Parents send in their gently used clothing, we list the clothes on Schoola.com at amazing prices. And schools receive proceeds from every item sold—money that funds all those programs so critical to the success of our kids. A win for all.
