Holiday Service Project

OGMS Holiday Service Project 2014

December 3 – 12, 2014

The Orange Grove Student Council and Student Action Committee are teaming up to collect donations for two organizations in Tucson.


We hope you can help:

Wednesday, December 3 at 8:55 am – Meet in the commons to distribute the boxes and posters to the classrooms.

Friday, December 12, 2:30-3:15 – Join us to sort and box the Aviva donations. All OGMS students and parents are welcome to join us after school on the 12th. Students should be picked up by 3:15 pm. We will then drive the donations to Aviva.



Aviva Children’s Services is a non-profit agency that works with Child Protective Services to provide support and resources to children who have experienced abuse, neglect or abandonment. You can learn more about Aviva at

They welcome donations for children of all ages (infants – age 17), but they have a particular need for donations for teens:

  • NEW clothing (pajamas, socks, underwear, mittens, scarves, gloves)
  • NEW unwrapped toys (games, books, dolls, arts & craft kits, sports equipment, stuffed animals — if toys require batteries, please include)
  • Stocking Stuffers (nail polish, make up, lip balm, decks of cards, small games, stickers, colored pencils)

We cannot collect gift cards or used items; we can only collect the items listed above.


Food Bank.


The Community Food Bank is a non-profit organization that serves southern Arizona. Arizona is the 3rd highest state in the nation for food insecurity. In Pima County, 29.7% of children are living below the poverty level. The Food Bank’s goal is to provide Arizonans with regular access to adequate and nutritious food. You can learn more at


We will be collecting non-perishable cereal, beans, pasta, canned foods, etc.

Donations for both projects will be collected in the first period classes between December 3rd – December 12th
