In RACC's 7th annual RACCy Olympics we have partnered with Opportunity House. Opportunity House was founded in Reading, PA in November 1984. It is currently located on 2nd Street and also have diverse facilities all over the city. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for people of all ages facing obstacles in independent living.
RACCy Olympics is our conjoined endeavor to learn through service and help our community through fundraising efforts. In prior years we have focused on fundraising, but as we evolve we have adapted our efforts to include service learning. The RACCy Olympics wrap up event is an afternoon filled with crazy and unique games – no physical prowess required – in which teams of students and staff compete for an overall title. It is our way of celebrating a long school year of fundraising.
The monetary donation of this year's RACCy Olympics will be going to provide services to Opportunity House's clients. Those services include their shelter, Second Street Learning Center, Children's Alliance Center, Supportive Services for Veterans' Families, and their Reuse and Recycle Program.
