What is Swine Week?
Edmond Memorial’s annual community service project, Swine Week, began in 1986 when a small group of students decided to raise money for a friend in need of a kidney transplant. The students approached the principal, who supported the endeavor and even agreed to kiss a pig. $3,000 was raised, the principal kissed a pig, and Swine Week was born. Flash forward 37 years, and EMHS students have since raised over $8 million dollars for charity. Last year, we raised $336,328 for The Care Center! Swine Week’s money was able to help The Care Center increase their outreach in order to heal children and their families.
In order to achieve our fundraising goal for 2023, we need your help! We trust that our tradition of outrageous generosity will continue. This year, EMHS selected HopeHouse OKC as the Swine Week recipient. To learn more visit https://hopehouseokc.com/
EMHS students have graciously devoted their time & money to help those in need. Please help us reach our goal and make our principal kiss a pig, a tradition since 1986.
Swine Week gives our community and student body one common goal – to help those in need. It involves the entire Edmond and Oklahoma City community.
Each year, Swine Week chooses a local nonprofit. We are absolutely elated to have HopeHouse OKC as our 2023 recipient. help us raise our goal and donate to Swine Week!
EMHS is filled with selfless students, teachers, and administrators. EMHS is devoted to tradition, excellence, and helping others through Swine Week.
