The current students in the EHOVE Medical Assistant occupational program collected 27 boxes for OHgo as part of their class volunteering project. Each year, the class chooses a local community organization as a way to better understand the local resources and community they will be serving upon graduation.
In each box they had compiled were collected items such as books, games, toys, toiletries, journals, slime making supplies, markers, crayons and more. Each box is fitted for a boy or girl in a specific age group and will be delivered to local children in the Erie and Huron County area.
This is the second year in a row the MA Class of EHOVE Adult Career Center has chosen OHgo's Project Happy.
OHgo is a non-profit organization that is committed to inspiring life-long contributors to society by facilitating acts of kindness within the community, delivering goods through a mobile service to disadvantaged families, and offering learning experiences within their local environments that encourages every individual to become a catalyst for positive change.
