Give To Lincoln Day

I attended St. Teresa's School from 1991 - 2001, and I am so grateful for the education I received.  My time at St. Teresa's provided me with a solid education, a nurturing of my faith, and an understanding of what it means to be a productive and caring citizen and community member.  The standard of academic excellence at St. Teresa's paved the way for my 4.0 GPA in both high school and college and helped foster a love of literature and music that remains with me today.  More importantly, St. Teresa's helped instill in me a love for God, a steadfast moral compass, and a knowledge of my faith that I continue to benefit from as an adult.  My childhood was filled with wholesome fun, a spirit of curiosity and wonder, and a focus on family values.  I know that St. Teresa's School is largely responsible for this.”

On May 31st, thousands of Lincoln residents will be showing their support for their favorite nonprofit organizations during Give to Lincoln Day, sponsored by the Lincoln Community Foundation. Give to Lincoln Day is a 24-hour event that encourages everyone to contribute to Lincoln and Lancaster County nonprofit organizations through Your gift will also help St. Teresa School claim a share of the $400,000 matching challenge fund offered by the Lincoln Community Foundation and their Give to Lincoln Day sponsors.

Your generous support and all of the funds raised on Give to Lincoln Day will be used to renovate the school’s kitchen to better serve over 270 students and over 37 faculty staff. The current facilities are in poor condition. Most of the existing kitchen fixtures and equipment are original construction, more than 85 years, and need to be upgraded. Our goal is $60,000 and we know we can reach this with your help!

Funds raised on Give to Lincoln Day will be used to address the following improvements:

  • The serving area will be reorganized to allow two lines to be served at the same time. This change will reduce the serving time by half and provide the students the proper dining time.
  • The serving wells and serving counter will be replaced with modern stainless steel heated serving wells and serving counter. The wood base cabinets and tables will be replaced with stainless steel kitchen equipment.
  • New lighting will be provided over the work and serving areas.
  • The small pantry office area will be expanded onto the adjacent stair landing. This will provide a secure food storage area and a desk space for the head cook.
  • The existing dish machine will have stainless steel backsplashes added to protect the adjacent walls.
  • The existing three compartment sink will have a drain table added over the grease trap.
  • The wall and ceiling plaster will be repaired, patched and repainted.
