PARIS — The OHCHS Food Pantry started in 2015 when staff noticed students were not getting all their basic needs met. Today, the pantry stocks basic items like toiletries, food, clothing, and school supplies provided by local donors.

It’s easy for students who wish to use the service; all they need to do is confide in a teacher, counselor, or administrator. They will then be taken by a staff member to one of the school’s pantries where they can shop in a private setting free from stigma. Because the program is anonymous, there are no flyers hung up advertising the pantry. Instead, the administration relies on word of mouth to spread the news.

A dedicated team of 1978 OHHS Alumni hosted a benefit scramble during their 40th reunion last year – raising over $3000 for the Food Pantry – it was such a success and there is such a need they decided to make it an annual FORE a Cause event, giving back to the community in which we work and live.

The “Fore a Cause” golf scramble registration is open!  Individual golfers and foursomes welcomed.  The event is open to the public

This year’s benefit scramble is Saturday, September 21st at Norway Country Club.
