History

Edmond Memorial’s annual community service project, Swine Week, began in 1986 when a small group of student council members decided that they wanted to make a difference in their school and community. They chose to raise money for a little girl who needed a kidney transplant. The students approached the principal, who supported the endeavor and even agreed to kiss a pig if they reached their total of $2,000, and when they did, Swine Week was born.

Fast forward 38 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.
