Head Start: Help Delaware Opportunities raise money to purchase backpacks and school supplies for the preschoolers who are going into kindergarten next year. Whatever we raise will be matched by the O'Connor Foundation! This is open to individuals and organizations alike. You can do any type of fundraiser, just bring the money to the OCCE and make sure it is put in the exchange account. Last year we helped them get a very large matching grant. Can we do it again? Yes we can!
The Arc of Delaware County: This nationally renowned organization participates on and off campus with service-learning and other co-curricular events like holiday parties and Study Buddies. We also have a new program making art with recycled materials called Creative Abundance. Let us know if you are interested. You could be a ground-breaker! Contact the OCCE for more information.
And many, many more! Please contact Elizabeth Sova, the O'Connor Center Director, at 607-746-4784, or Abby Brannen-Wilson at 607-746-4781, if you have any suggestions or ideas.
