After a community group declined to fund grants requested from Oak Cliff elementary schools, Oak Cliffers stepped up to raise $34,000 in two days.


That was enough to fund all of the grants requested, plus about $14,000 left over, which likely will be used to fund a startup nonprofit supporting elementary schools and parents of young children in Oak Cliff.

Here they are delivering a giant check for $1,884 to Arcadia Park elementary’s music teacher.
