Our Annual OHS Thanksgiving food drive begins November 4th and runs until Friday, November 20th
Each year OHS families donate hundreds of non-perishable items to the Daughters of Charity in Bridgeport to help families and individuals in need of food for the holidays.
In the past we have collected well over 1,900 items a year! This year, more than ever, this charity is in desperate need so we hope to collect just as many. As a community we can make this holiday of giving special for those less fortunate.
And as a special incentive – the grade level (both hybrid & remote students by grade) with the most items collected will receive a virtual bedtime story read by a surprise OHS guest.
Items can be left in boxes at the outside entrance to each classroom from November 4th – November 20th.
Remote families have the option to drop in the boxes outside one of the classrooms for their grade OR please contact Patty Keenan firstname.lastname@example.org.
In year’s past, the food drive has also included our fun run “Turkey Trot” on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving break. More details to follow on how we hope to still incorporate this fun tradition in a special 2020 way!
