Investing in Success

 
COVID-19 rELIEF 
 
how can i help at this time:
 
You can support the following funds: Distressed Students and Families Fund, OCPS Food & Nutrition, OCPS Homeless Education, or OCPS Family Fund (helps OCPS employees) by clicking on the "GIVE" heart above or by clicking here.  You may also choose “Area of Greatest Need” to ensure your gift has maximal impact. For your convenience the gift options for these funds have been moved to the top of the list. Thank you for your gift to support our students and staff at this trying time.  
 
We need a supply of gift cards for groceries and other needs for students and their families, and potentially for staff as well. Cash contributions can be made online to allow us to purchase them (choose “Area of Greatest Need” and specify “gift cards for COVID-19 crisis” in the Notes section), or gift cards themselves can be given in-kind for us to distribute.
 
Anyone who is interested in helping ensure that students receive meals during the second week of the break should visit the website for our partner Second Harvest Food Bank (SHFB). SHFB is encouraging cash contributions rather than food contributions at this time. Visit www.feedhopenow.org to help!
 
We will need to replenish food pantries at many schools once this crisis is over. Cash contributions for this purpose can be accepted now (please use the Notes section to specify this designation if you choose to give online), and we can work with you on logistics at a later date.

Since COVID-19 won't let us hold our tournament this year, we are offering a 
nifty new Raffle instead!

 

We can sure use your help!

We've pivoted to a virtual raffle to help us make up for lost revenue. During the next three weeks, you'll have opportunities to buy tickets for a suggested minimum contribution amount.

A new set of items will be offered each week – be sure to check back as the value of the items offered each week will grow. You'll love the raffle items we have and it’s just in time for the holiday season!

Weekly winners will be announced at 10:00 a.m. on the following dates:

October 26 ~ November 2
