“OOLY is aware of the great work Casita Center is doing, and their need for additional resources, as an OOLY employee’s child attends the magnet school. The teachers will use the funds and supplies to create an even better learning experience for their students in the classroom.”

As part of OOLY’s commitment to education, OOLY has teamed-up with AdoptAClassroom.org and become title sponsor of the OOLY Art Fund. The OOLY Art Fund celebrates innovation and creativity in the classroom.
