We are located in a rural community in Northwest Oklahoma. Approximately 800 students attend our middle school which includes grades 5-8. Students here are actively involved in music, band, art, sports, dance, theater, and technology to name a few! Our students have a drive to be successful in their activities as well as to connect with others to help them succeed. Even though we are considered a Title I school and many students themselves need assistance, this does not hinder their desire to help others.
Two years ago, we formed a local FRIENDS OF RACHEL organization.
Students meet voluntarily each month, are involved in many service projects, and are now collecting items for Hurricane Relief efforts. Many of these students were in a tornado that swept through town in 2012. They experienced firsthand what it is like to need help. Besides being leaders who want to combat bullying in their school, these students are always finding ways to spread kindness while making positive changes in their community, state, and anywhere in the world!
Our organization has partnered with another Middle School in Texas who experienced great losses after their most recent hurricane. They are needing assistance and we are lined up ready to lend a hand. In order to follow through with our project and reach our goal, we are searching for a generous donor. Since many are still homeless, we need someone to help purchase items such as long sleeved tshirts, books, and earbuds.
Students will be given the opportunity to learn valuable life lessons from this project.
Helping others provides experiences that model life skills such as communication, being selfless, and managing money.
