The OWN IT! students in Ogilvie have been busy.
In December they went shopping with money they raised from their bake sale and with money given to them by the Student Council and purchased close to $500 in gifts for our local Holiday Gifts for Kids program.
They also challenged the student body to collect toys for Holiday Gifts for Kids too! For every 10 gifts received Mr. Aasen, Student Council Adviser, added an additional ornament to his ugly Christmas vest! 135 toys were collects and Mr. Aasen, pictured below has 14 new ornaments adorning his vest!
On December 20th the OWN IT! students volunteers most of their day helping families pick out gifts for their children and wrapping those gifts at the Holiday Gifts for Toys Distribution event at the Grand Event Center. Over 515 kids received a holiday gift because of the generous donations of community members and volunteers! Thank you OWN IT! Students for your outstanding service to our communities!
Thank you OWN IT! for participating in community events and showing others than we are better together!
