OPEN POSTIONS

There’s no better time than now to get involved in OW.  We have several open positions that need leadership and help.

 

Project Back To School Co-Chair

The goal of this project is to provide children of the district with necessary back to school items. This will help ensure the children of families who cannot afford these items will have a positive start to their school year.  The project chairs work with the school counselors to determine what school supplies are needed per grade.  Co-chairs confirm donation sites and place back to school donation bins in June and retrieved after Labor Day.  In August, backpacks are prefilled with appropriate back to school supplies and then delivered to school counselors before start of school.  If interested, please contact Leslie Collins (mommagic@comcast.net)

Project Books

The goal of this project is to work with school and area libraries to promote the distribution of books to students in all district schools, and to enable teachers easier access to books for their students who cannot afford their own books.  If interested, please contact
