What is Knight in Shining Armor?
Thank you so much for your outpouring of generosity in helping the High School Student Council to establish our Knight in Shining Armor fund. This fund has been used to aid families in our community during times of misfortune.
Since our inception, we have been able to donate to numerous families within the district during their times of need. Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to donate gift cards to families to help pay for gas, food, and immediate needs after car accidents. With your support, we have also been able to purchase school supplies for multiple families after experiencing a house fire and a devastating cancer diagnosis. Furthermore, the fund that you helped to build covers expenses to ensure that all students within our district are able to participate in school sponsored activities.
As an Otsego Family, we would like to be better prepared to help with any future crisis. We are asking for your help to continue our fundraising efforts to help those afflicted when an unexpected situation occurs. If you are willing to pledge a small donation to help us continue in our efforts, we suggest five dollars, but any donation is greatly appreciated.
Student Council just wrapped up our World's Finest Chocolate sale. We have raised over $900 due to your generosity in purchasing chocolate bars.
In May, Student Council also hosted a Penny War. Over $500 was donated to Knight in Shining Armor. Details will be provided soon through social media as well as student emails.
Knight In Shining Armor Nominations
Please use the following form to inform OHS Student Council about a family in need within the school district. While the family does not need to have students in the district, we do ask that they are a member of the Otsego Community. Please use this form to share information about their current situation as well as how they can best be assisted.
Please be sure to understand that while Knight in Shining Armor (KISA) would love to help all community members in need, we are still a new program, and may not have the funds to do so. With that being said, we will consider each request on a case by case basis. Filling this form out does not guarantee that we will be able to assist the family, but we will try our hardest to do so!
Please refer to this link at any point during the year as a need arises, and KISA will do their best to help out!
