What is Swine Week?
Edmond Memorial High School’s enduring tradition of community service, Swine Week, traces its origins back to 1986 when a compassionate group of students rallied to raise funds for a friend in dire need of a kidney transplant. The initiative gained momentum with the backing of the principal, who supported the cause and committed to kissing a pig in a memorable act of solidarity. The inaugural event successfully raised $3,000, marking the inception of Swine Week.
Fast forward 37 years, and the students of EMHS have collectively amassed over $8 million in charitable contributions. In the previous year alone, an impressive $361,333 was raised for The HopeHouse OKC. Swine Week’s financial support significantly helped with their building campaign to provide safe, stable housing for families experiencing homelessness.
As we set our sights on the fundraising goals for 2024, we invite you to be a part of this impactful tradition. Your generosity has been instrumental in our past successes, and we trust that the spirit of giving will endure. For Swine Week 2024, EMHS has chosen Peaceful Family Oklahoma as the beneficiary. Learn more about their mission and how you can contribute at https://peacefulfamilyok.org/. Your support will play a vital role in making a positive difference in the lives of those in need.
