Helping our Community
Food and School Supply Drives
We all love our Oakland Mills community and want to see it thrive. Especially since the entire first semester of the 2020-2021 school year is online, we want to make sure that students within the Oakland Mills community have all the necessary supplies needed in order to learn at home. We plan to have a school supply drive for our students later this month. Stay tuned for more information and how you can donate.
Help support our local food pantry at Oakland Mills High School by donating canned and nonperishable items to make sure that the families within our community have food, especially during these uncertain times.

Ohana HC is excited to announce their expansion into supporting our students at Oakland Mills High School and is in need for mentors to work with our students! If you are interested in supporting our students as a mentor, please attend one of their information sessions. They are in need of many more young adult mentors between the ages of 18 - 30, with a goal to place one young adult into each of the 32 Ohanas; eight will be at Oakland Mills.
