Orange Students Making a Difference in Our Communities
December 19, 2014
These are just a few many examples of Orange Schools making a difference in our community this holiday season...
- MHS Coats for Kids:
Moreland Hills Elementary School's annual "Coats for Kids" collection was a huge success once again. Fifth graders helped coordinate the collection of more than 150 new and gently worn coats and jackets that were donated to help keep the children of Greater Cleveland warm this winter.
- BMS Food Drive:
Following a school-wide collection of canned goods, Brady Middle School Builders Club members boxed, carried, loaded and unloaded more than 60 cases of food for the Garfield Memorial Church Emergency Food Pantry which serves families right in our own community. The amount of food the students gathered will feed between 45 and 60 families in need during the holidays.
- BMS Builders Club at Hamlet Village:
Members of the Builders Club spent an afternoon with the residents of Hamlet Village to bring some special cheer at the holidays. The students entertained the residents as they performed for them and showcased the many talents Brady students have and then spent time playing games and chatting with the residents.
- OHS Blood Drive:
More than 60 Orange High School students and staff recently participated in the third American Red Cross Blood Drive held at the school in 2014. OHS topped its goal of 47 units with a collection of 48 productive units which will touch the lives of nearly 150 people. The next blood drive at OHS is scheduled for March 12, 2015.
- MHS Holiday Cards for US Soldiers and Veterans:
Various classes at Moreland Hills Elementary School designed and wrote greeting cards that were sent to Veteran and current American Military Service Women and Men.
