Students at Oquirrh Hills Middle School wanted to make a difference in the lives of others and they did it in a big way this holiday season. The entire school rallied behind the Oquirrh Fest fundraiser in a number of fun activities to benefit ‘Pennies For Patients’ and the Jordan Education Foundation’s Holiday Hero’s. ‘Pennies For Patients’ is part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission to find a cure for leukemia and lymphoma Hodgkin’s disease, myeloma and improving the quality of life for patients and their families. Holiday Hero’s helps to fund ‘Christmas for Kids,’ a free holiday shopping trip for students in need.
This year Oquirrh Hills raised an impressive $27,162.43! It is definitely money that will impact the lives of others in the community.
Way to go, Oquirrh Hills Middle School!
