After Nea Community Learning Center (Nea), put out a call for donations when Alameda Point families experienced water quality difficulties, both the Nea community and Alameda Point Target stepped up to help. 

Families affected by the water issues requested diapers, wipes and hand sanitizer. Nea put out a request for help and in addition to others, the Meyers family, Jim, Alana and Adam decided they wanted to help. They set off to Target at Alameda Point to load their cart with all sizes of diapers to donate. Seeing the curious assorted sizes, Target manager Annalise Mahoney asked the Meyers family why they were buying such an assortment. They explained that they were making a donation through their school to the Alameda Point Collaborative.

After hearing about the donation drive, Target staff immediately offered that the Alameda Point Target would contribute another $100. They also suggested that a request could be made to the corporate headquarters for an additional contribution. The Target team then helped the Meyers family make a request. 

A quick response from Target headquarters resulted in an additional donation of $1,000 to help with the effort. The Nea community stepped up and donated more than $1,500 in contributions, thanks to their efforts and the generosity of Target. Special thanks go out to not only Nea and the Meyers family, but to Robert Osorio, Carmen Cole, Annalise Mahoney and Jean Troconig at Target for helping make it happen!

The Meyers family, along with Nea Lead Facilitators (Principals) Jana Chabre and Annahita Radd presented the donation to the Alameda Point Collaborative’s Doug Biggs. The Collaborative was very thankful for the donation of both diapers and Target gift cards to be used for much needed provisions for their residents. 

Giving back to the community is a core-learning lesson at at Nea. This is a prime illustration of how Nea pulls together as a school community to support each other and the society in which they live.
