2019 Recipient Boys & Girls Club
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. 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 34 years, and EMHS students have since raised over $6.5 million dollars for charity. Last year, we raised $479,801 for Make Promises Happen! Swine Week’s money was able to help Make Promises Happen build a conference center that will soon be the central meeting place for many camp activities.
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; this year we need your help raising money for our 2019 recipient, Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County.
EMHS is filled with selfless students, teachers, and administrators. EMHS is devoted to tradition, excellence, and helping others through Swine Week.
Boys & Girls Club
2019 marks the 34th year of serving our community through this philanthropic venture, and we would deeply appreciate your support in our mission to help this year’s recipient, Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County, an organization dedicated to providing a safe, positive place for kids through dynamic programs and a nurturing staff. the Club empowers youth to make the right decisions. In 1995, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County opened to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who needed a positive influence to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizen. This organization continued to expand, and now serves 800 kids every day through their after school programs.
