LINCOFT, NJ: 'Tis the season for giving and Oak Hill Academy has that covered! The Oak Hill community values learning, compassion, and communal giving which is why it has partnered with the CROP Hunger Walk for the past 40 years.
CROP Hunger Walks are community-based walk events held in cities and towns across the United States to raise funds to support the global mission of nourishing the hungry. In addition to the global focus, twenty-five percent of the funds raised from the walks are returned to the local community to support community hunger fighting efforts.
Oak Hill Academy has supported the CROP Hunger Walk’s efforts by collecting thousands of pounds of food and by raising money through successful food drives. Oak Hill has also hosted fundraisers including selling CROP Hunger Walk stickers and bracelets. Oak Hill encourages homeroom participation and each year the collections exceeds the expectations fourfold.
Through the Oak Hill Academy Student Council, Oak Hill is able to directly support the CROP Hunger Walk initiative but also raise awareness about food inequities through assemblies, presentations, and selling CROP Hunger Walk merchandise. "Our school is proud to offer our continued support to the CROP Hunger Walk’s important mission." commented Oak Hill Academy Communications Director, Peter Bruckmann.
