SpotlightComments Off on Community Support Bolsters Highly Successful Bulldog Closet Donation Drive
This year’s annual donation drive for the Bulldog Closet was a complete success. Thank you to everyone that made it possible!
We received huge donations from Kaiser Pediatrics and The Education Trust-West, along with a multitude of individual donations. Tech students spearheaded fundraising in their community, donating requested items and gift cards. Tech gave over $2,000 in gift cards to OUSD families enrolled in the Backpack Program to provide extra help over our long two-week break. Lastly, Piedmont Elementary received over eight bags of donated hygiene products and snack foods to help establish their own resource for students and families in need of some extra support.
Tech is looking forward to collaborating with Piedmont Elementary on future opportunities to support and promote equity in our district.
As a reminder, the Bulldog Closet is a resource that provides hygiene products, clothing items, school supplies, and other items such as laundry detergent for members of the OUSD community experiencing housing insecurity or whose families do not have the resources to purchase them themselves.
