H.E.R.O.E.S. Week was founded in 2003 with the goal of meeting the needs of both physically and spiritually of local or overseas nonprofit organizations. H.E.R.O.E.S. stands for hands extended reflecting our exalted savior. Simply put, that is exactly what our mission is. We are working together as a school to glorify Jesus Christ and shine His light, not only to the chosen organization but also to the Edmond community. We are thrilled about the opportunity and experiences that lie ahead and hope that you see the value of what H.E.R.O.E.S. Week will accomplish. Our commitment to this value shaped this years decision on choosing this years 2021/2022 H.E.R.O.E.S. recipient: Project 66.

The Project 66 Food & Resource Center is a faith-based, 501-c3 nonprofit that provides food and resources to people who are facing food insecurity in Edmond, Arcadia, Jones, and Luther, Oklahoma. Since their founding in 2010, Project 66 has been at the forefront of the fight against hunger in central Oklahoma. As an affiliate of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Project 66 distributes food to people who would otherwise go undernourished, such as children, the elderly, the disabled, and families who are facing difficult economic times. They also connect clients with local resources that may help them with other issues they are facing, such as finding community clinics, learning English, or getting assistance with rent or utilities.

We would love if you wanted to donate, but more than anything we would be so grateful if you would partner along with us in prayer for this amazing organization.
