Siouxland Big Give Again Includes Heelan Project

Textbooks Will be Heelan’s Big Give Project Oct 6
Posted on 09/06/2020
Bishop Heelan High School hopes to raise $16,000 for textbooks in the third annual Siouxland Big Give, an online day of giving on Tuesday, Oct. 6. 

Big Give, sponsored by the Siouxland Community Foundation, will again help some 100 area non-profits raise funds for special projects and needs.

New “Advanced Anatomy” textbooks will further enhance learning tools for science. New “Social Studies” textbooks explain U.S. history and society struggles that continue today.

“While we have funded more technology and enhanced software for continued learning in the face of COVID-19," says Heelan Principal Chris Bork.  "we never lose sight of the critical need for excellent textbooks. Good textbooks are expensive. We appreciate donors who support our focus on strong academics.”

Last year Big Give donors supported Heelan with nearly $20,000 in gifts to surface the indoor track of the new O’Gorman Fieldhouse. In 2018 Heelan Big Give donors contributed $18,000 to help fund the video scoreboard in the fieldhouse.

The new facility opened to rave review last December and has hosted thousands of people for a variety of events.
