Sand Springs students donate $10,000 to nonprofit

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. — Students at Charles Page High School in Sand Springs donated $10,000 to a local nonprofit organization.

The students donated the funds to Sand Springs Community Services (SSCS), which assists residents experiencing economic crisis with basic needs assistance.

The high school’s student council raised funds during GOLD Week, which stands for Give Often, Love Deeply, by organizing a snow cone sale, bake sale, field day and more.

In a Facebook post, SSCS said the donated funds will be used to continue to serve the most vulnerable in the community.

WOW! Thank you Sand Springs Charles Page High School Student Council, Student Body, and Faculty for this generous GOLD...
