Action Partnership Food Drive
Action Partnership is dedicated to alleviate poverty and its root causes by helping
people and changing lives by: building better communities; improving health; reducing
hunger; averting crisis, and strengthening families in low-income communities. Action
Partnership mobilizes both public and private resources to help the poor move out of
poverty by meeting their basic needs, averting and helping them to become more
self-sufficient. They provide food to the hungry, after school programs, family
services, conduct community development activities, mentoring, refurbished computers to
low-income kids, distribute food and clothing to help families transition off welfare
and much more.
Huntington Beach Senior Saturday
The Huntington Beach Council on Aging, one of many such organizations in California representing the
interests of the senior population, presents its Senior Saturday every September.
Hundreds of Baby Boomers and others go to the HB Pier Plaza to dance, sing, eat and
especially learn the latest news from 75 vendors on healthy living (from doctors, nurses
and health care providers), home health care, transportation, banking and investments,
physical fitness, memorial services and senior living centers. Fairmont Prep provides
set up, break down, and helps sell breakfast and lunch to the visitors.
Boys and Girls Club Halloween Candy Drive
Each year the Stanton, Buena Park, Fullerton, and Anaheim Boys and Girls Club look
forward to our Halloween candy donations. The students donate assorted individually
wrapped Halloween candy. One Saturday prior to Halloween several students come to school
and pack the candy in Halloween treat bags. These bags are then delivered to the various
Boys and Girls Club locations in order for Halloween and their annual costume contest
The CHOC Walk in the Park is more than a visit to Disneyland Park. It’s a celebration of
the community, an opportunity for families to thank the doctors and nurses that care for
their children and a time to share stories with other families. Participants in the CHOC
Walk in the Park enjoy a 5k walk through Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure
Park and the Downtown Disney District.
Canning Hunger "Box of Love" Drive
Canning Hunger Box of Love Drive—“Box of Love” is an opportunity for students to help
the hungry and the homeless, the widows and the orphans, the lost and forgotten. Their
gift of a complete holiday meal for a family of 6-8 people, wrapped up in a simple
cardboard box, will provide a ray of hope and the warm feeling of being loved, something
they may have almost forgotten.
CHOC Toy Drive
The annual CHOC toy drive is a great way for Fairmont families to donate a toy for a boy
or a girl who frequent CHOC—Children’s Hospital of Orange County -- due to unforeseen
illnesses. These toys will be given to patients who often spend weeks or months inside
the hospital, extending the season of giving beyond the holidays. Toys are used as
therapeutic play to help patients adjust to their hospitalization and create a positive
Orangewood Children's Foundation Clothing Drive
Help the Prep provide warmth and comfort to those less fortunate this winter by donating
clothes that are either too small, outdated or you just do not wear. Please note that
all articles of clothing need to be washed and nicely folded. Please do not donate
stained, dirty or ill-repaired items. Students can receive community service hours for
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)
Fairmont Prep joins more than 25,000 schools nationwide in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients Program. For several weeks, Fairmont has the opportunity to help people who are sick with blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, or myeloma. Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, or even paper money or checks are collected and then deposited in collection boxes.
Every cent counts when it comes to finding a cure!
American Red Cross Blood Drive
Faculty, staff, and students are given the opportunity to save lives by donating blood to the Red Cross Club. Every donation gives hope and the gift of life to 3 patients in need. The selfless donation could give a young child another shot at life…another family a chance to keep a loved one with them!
Animal Shelter Treat Drive
Support the Orange County Animal Care Services (OCACS) by donating cat and dog treats. OCACS is the only open-admission shelter in Orange County, which means no animal is ever turned away.
Boys and Girls Club Easter Candy
Prior to Easter and spring break, Fairmont Prep students donate Easter candy for the Boys
and Girls Club. One Saturday a few weeks before Easter, students gather at the Prep and
place the candy in plastic Easter eggs. These eggs are sorted among four local Boys and
Girls Club in Orange County. The filled eggs are then used for the annual Easter egg
hunt the clubs host each year.
Anaheim Children's Art Festival
The City of Anaheim values the family connection in early years of learning that these
events are held on an annual basis. This is a great opportunity for children to
participate in expressing their artistic skills and possibly win prizes by entering the
contests. Fairmont Prep students host a recycled dryer sheet butterfly booth. Children
may come to the booth and make their own butterfly with clothes pin and dryer sheet. It
is a wonderful way for our high school students to connect with elementary children.
