OCO SUMMER CAMP KIDS RAISE FUNDS TO PURCHASE WAGON FOR THEIR FRIENDS AT THE ECC 

Wagon PhotoOFCS students and parents prove once again what a wonderful and caring community in which we live. Over the summer months, the children of Olmsted Community Outreach’s summer camp program raised money to purchase a specially designed wagon for the special needs children at the Olmsted Falls Early Childhood Center.

Special thanks go out to Cheryl Fudale for spearheading this project, and to the OCO children and their families for participating. The summer campers had fun making crafts for the OCO craft show, selling lemonade, and playing balloon pop while learning a valuable lesson in community service.
