Dear Brown Middle School Community Members,

In this uncertain and challenging time for all families, we want to reach out to families in the Brown community that are in need of additional support and resources.

We also know there are many people, including teachers, staff and Brown community families, who are looking for ways to be of assistance. Below is a form, specific to Brown, to help people looking for help and people able to offer it.

If you would like to provide financial support for these efforts, we’ve also set up a separate fund within the PTO and included a donation link below. All donations will go directly to Brown Middle School families in need.

Also listed here are other community supports and ways to be of assistance.

Nominate a Good Cause for The Giving Project

The Giving Project is back! Inspired by Brown English teacher Becky Cohen, the Giving Project is a special community event that brings families from Brown and Oak Hill together over a delicious meal while raising awareness and funds for some of the many charities supported by our students and faculty.

Students and faculty are invited to nominate non-profit organizations they support, along with a brief summary of why they support it. Nominations are due Thursday, April 9. The nominations are then shared with both the Brown and Oak Hill communities, and 5 charities are selected to be showcased at our Giving Project Potluck Dinner on Thursday, May 7th. The funds raised at the dinner are then shared among the 5 charities. We can’t wait to hear about the charity or cause that inspires you! Click here to nominate an organization today!
