Monday's board meeting included a special guest with a special thank you. Christian Neighbors' Community Outreach Director, Kim Shafer, presented Supt. Jeff Haase with an Outstanding Supporter certificate to thank the district for all of their support.
She talked about how much the students, staff and OPS families help their organization in meeting the needs of our neighbors. Otsego students hold several drives throughout the year to help Christian Neighbors including the middle school food drive, the elementary "Food Fight" volleyball game and food drive and the Washington Street Elementary personal hygiene product drive they hold each December. Other groups, such as a middle school Destination Imagination team, chose Christian Neighbors to help during a community outreach challenge.
Christian Neighbors is a food pantry and assistance organization helping residents from the Otsego, Plainwell and Martin areas.
