Limbs for Life chosen as Common Thread for Edmond Schools’ Philanthropy Weeks
Edmond (OK) High Schools hold a philanthropy week each year to raise funds for a selected charity. Each of the three schools raise thousands of dollars to benefit local organizations. In addition, the schools jointly select another nonprofit called the Common Thread to receive 5% of the total funds.
Limbs for Life was chosen as #CommonThreadEdmond for 2022. Representatives will attend many of the events sponsored by Edmond North H.S., Santa Fe H.S., and Edmond Memorial H.S. during February and March. A Common Thread t-shirt was designed by an Edmond alum and is available for a $20 donation.
We are excited to have the opportunity to work with amazing students in their efforts to support local charities with their time and talent.
