District officials are asking the community to wear the school's colors of blue and gold on Friday

SHENANGO TWP., Pa. (WKBN) – Some Lawrence County school districts are coming together to support the superintendent of the Shenango Area Schools and his young son who were injured in a crash.

Dr. Michael Schreck is said to be in critical condition at a hospital in Pittsburgh.

His 13-year-old son Aiden is also hospitalized.

Both were badly hurt Monday morning during a three-vehicle crash in Slippery Rock Township.

Leaders and students in surrounding districts are planning “Blue and Gold Day” programs — Shenango’s colors — at their own schools to help the Schreck family.

“We show our compassion and show our empathy by wearing their school colors in our school, and then everyone’s doing their own little thing to raise whatever monies they can, just to support the incidental costs for his family,” said Laurel Schools Superintendent Leonard Rich.

The Shenango Area School District is also holding a t-shirt sale fundraiser for the family of Dr. Schreck. Shirts can be ordered online here.

In addition to Blue and Gold Day, a donation drive will also be held. Students can bring in a monetary donation to school, with proceeds going to the Schreck family.

Individuals or organizations seeking to make donations should make checks payable to the “Michael Schreck Recovery Fund.”All contributions can be directed to: Attn: Lauren Chappell, Business Manager, Shenango Area School District, 2501 Old Pittsburgh Road, New Castle, PA 16101.
