Students from Oxford Academy's philanthropy club, "Oxford Nation" held their second annual "Halloween Hunger Hunt" for SSKP on Halloween night. Students dressed as a giant bowl of spaghetti, complete with giant spoon and fork, went door-to-door, collecting non-perishable foods from Ivoryton residents during Halloween trick-or-treating.

 

With the help of faculty member Ms. Jill Vaughn, they collected several boxes of cans and food items. In addition the club asked fellow students to give a "Dress Down Day" donation, and presented SSKP with monetary donations made by over sixty Oxford Academy students.

 

SSKP hopes other schools will be inspired by their creativity and caring spirit. Thank you, Oxford Academy!
