Madonna School gives thanks for community generosity

Just days before sitting down for a Thanksgiving feast, Omaha's Madonna School had cause for another celebration.

Thanks to the generosity of Alegent Health and community benefactors, the school, a one-of-a-kind Catholic school that serves cognitively-challenged children in the Omaha area, is finally able to move forward in its mission to be debt free.
