TOYS FOR TOTS!!! Collecting Monday, November 9th – Friday, November 20th

Our annual Toys for Tots campaign is quickly approaching! The National Junior Honor society for OMMS is collecting money to purchase toys for families that would otherwise not have a Christmas. Last year, we were able to collect over $2,500, and our goal is to surpass our last year’s total! Please start collecting your change and dollars that  you wish to donate.

I will be the teacher collecting money for the 7th grade red team, and we will keep a total in each class. As there are a few students on our team that do not have me for math, please encourage them to come see me, so we can adopt them to a class so they can participate in the fun of sharing and giving as well! We will be collecting Monday, November 9th – Friday, November 20th, so please be ready to donate your spare dollars and change!

If you are wanting to collect within your community and would like more information, please take the attached letter with you! (TFT Community Letter 2015)

Ideas to raise money:

  • Bake sale
  • Ask family, friends, neighbors
  • Donate time to help with chores to earn money
  • Attend the Annual OMMS Toys for Tots Faculty Auburn v. Alabama match: Thursday, November 19th!

Can you Can? October 8-16th

Can You Can?  Phase I Can! Food Drive is Oct. 8-16 (Starts this Thursday!)

Please help in joining OMMS support Oak Mountain Missions and Manna Ministries by donating canned food and boxed non-perishable items. The items that we collect go to families in need in our area. We hope that you will help your students realize the impact that they can have by donating items for the purpose of helping someone who is less fortunate.

As we collect items in our homeroom classes (4th period for 6th and 7th grades, and 5th period for 8th grade), we keep a tally count in order to have friendly competition in order to help increase the participation throughout the school. The homeroom per grade level that collects the most cans wins a pizza party. However, keep in mind the purpose of this Canned Food Drive is the spirit of giving and service to the community. Yes, it is fun to be competitive; however, we want each homeroom to encourage integrity in their giving and donations.

In order to help facilitate ease of storage at OMM and Manna Ministries, please do not separate items from their original packaging.  Please also remember that collected items must have a valid expiration date.

While this is a good substitute if you cannot make it to school this evening, it will not replace putting a face and voice with the parent/guardian of my students. I look forward to meeting you!
