|OJR Football Team forms a human conveyor belt to unload food pantry items|
Many thanks to all those who donated items to the pantry and to those who labored to make sure pantry shelves were loaded and coordinated. Thank you to Gross Bus Company for the use of the school bus and to driver Cindy Barnett for her hard work each year. Thank you to all the building coordinators, principals, and school clubs who managed drives at each district location, and a special shout out to Ms. Kira Rumpp for organizing Make a Difference Day for the third year. As part of Make a Difference Day, Friday's varsity football game will be a pink-out game in support of Unite for Her, a local organization who provides breast cancer support.
