Swim Ohana November NAM Food Drive & Practice Group Contest
UPDATE: 12/4/20 Ohana donated almost 800 lbs of food to NAM - best turnout on a food drive we have had ever! Congratulations to the Senior group for donating over 300 items and winning the pizza party!
UPDATE: As of 11/11/20 we have a great start on donations! So proud of kids for participating (and their parents). The winning group will be relative to the size of the practice group (some are much larger than others). Leading the way are the Senior group, then Juniors, Junior Selects, and PreJunior.
