The Abington School District has been named a recipient of the 2023 Helping Kids Mini-Grants on behalf of the AASA, The School Superintendents Association.
The program is supported by its government cooperative procurement partner, Sourcewell.
According to the AASA’s press release:
This year, $108,000 in funds have been distributed to 35 school districts across the country and have been used for everything from urgent everyday necessities to disaster relief. As a continuation of AASA’s Live Well. Lead Well. initiative, AASA is providing these funds to districts for assistance with promoting healthy students, healthy staff and/or healthy buildings. In addition, funds are also being provided to districts impacted by 2022 natural disasters.
“AASA wants to help.

Domenech, executive director, AASA, said in the press release. “We thank Sourcewell for making this relief effort possible. This partnership speaks to the unparalleled commitment being made to school districts nationwide.”
“Our mission at Sourcewell is to be a source multiplier.

Through this relationship, we are grateful to play a small role in helping to establish stability on behalf of the honorees, especially in the uncertain times we’re in.”
