The students at Heritage Oak Private School provided a little TLC to other kids in need.

Last fall, students from Heritage Oak Private School located in Yorba Linda participated in the Great American Fundraiser program. Through their work with this program, the students worked hard to raise a certain amount of funds so they could receive a stuffed animal that will then be donated to the charity of their choice. The Heritage Oak students recently donated 72 stuffed huskies to children being treated at Children’s Hospital, Orange County (CHOC), and coincidentally, the huskie happens to be Heritage Oak’s mascot.
“It brings us so much joy to think of all the children we may have given a little extra comfort to,” said Courtney McKenna, Heritage Oak’s Director of Student Services. “Choosing CHOC as the destination for these sweet little huskies was a natural thought, as we wanted to send a little extra love from our students to the children of CHOC, who truly need the support.”
This partnership with Great American falls in line with Heritage Oak’s all-encompassing philosophy to develop the whole child by providing a positive, safe and nurturing environment that enhances learning by maintaining a high level of academic and behavioral standards.
