Oak Hill Prep Raises $3K for Harvey Relief

 

Three cheers for the fundraising machine that is Oak Hill Prep!


In past years the group has: Collected and shipped 270 pounds of clothing for re-sale to support the Malala Fund's efforts to get girls to school
Baked and sold dozens of slices of pie - on Pi Day, of course! - to support Oak Hill School's many excellent programs
Raised hundreds of dollars for UNICEF...
 And now, thanks to the support of STUDENTS, FAMILIES, ALUMNI, FACULTY and BOARD, the group netted $3,001.11 in a breakfast sale earlier this month, with all proceeds going to relief efforts following hurricane Harvey.

The project caught the attention of many generous donors. All ingredient costs were covered before the first egg was cracked!

Students (and a special guest alumnus) did the cooking, the food-safety monitoring, the email acknowledgements, the money-handling, and the serving-up of some delicious plates of Eggs Bréard, bowls of OAK-Meal, and more.

When the project was proposed on the first day of school, students responded with an immediate YES. By consensus, the group chose the American Red Cross and the Houston Humane Society as beneficiaries.

Stay tuned for more service learning projects from this dynamic group of young people!
