#GivingTuesday was a busy day of philanthropy and generosity worldwide. With more than 98 countries participating, a record $168 Million was raised for charities around the globe along with millions of acts of kindness.

During this busy celebration of Giving, the HSE Schools community rallied to honor local heroes that are making a difference every day: our teachers, counselors, nurses, coaches, bus drivers, administrators, and staff members.

And you did it! Thanks to your generosity – we met the Rise to Challenge goal of $21,000 in a single day! This brings the grand total to $42,000! These funds will be invested back into all 21 local schools through teacher grants, scholarships, and district programs. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for major impact announcement coming soon!

You also flooded social media with compliments and recognition for our school champions. A few of the heartfelt messages and adorable images can be found at

Thank you for continuing to make HSE Schools an incredible place to learn and grow!
