EFO supports Orinda Cares
September 17, 2017
#OrindaCares is a partnership program with Orinda Schools, The City of Orinda, Miramonte High School, and a non-profit organization, Mindful Littles, to inspire all Orinda students through meaningful service opportunities.
Their first project is focused on supporting the student victims of Hurricane Harvey. They are partnering with Sydney Paige Inc, a local backpack company dedicated to promoting the importance of education and enriching the lives of children in need.
Goals for this community initiative are to:
Raise funds to provide 1,000 backpacks filled with necessary school supplies
Educate and inspire our children to be compassionate global citizens
Engage our students in hands-on service learning projects to help Houston kids
Fundraising initiatives will culminate in a Backpack Assembly Party on Sunday, October 15th from 11am-230pm at the Orinda Community Center.
Please join our community effort today and support #OrindaCares. Together with open hearts, we hope to make a significant impact on the lives on many Hurricane Harvey victims.
