Oak Ridge High School’s Interact Club will host a rummage sale to raise money for the MitoKids Foundation.
Shop donated goods in the ORHS upper parking lot, 1120 Harvard Way in El Dorado Hills, beginning at 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 6.
MitoKids, a non-profit organization, spreads awareness about Mitochondrial Disease and supports the families who have been affected by medical hardship. This organization also provides financial support to cover the medical-related travel costs not paid for by insurance. MitoKids also donates money to help fund research for Mitochondrial Disease.
This organization is especially important to Oak Ridge students. A teacher at Oak Ridge has three grandchildren suffering from the disease.
The ORHS Interact Club, with about 200 members, contributes time and donations to local and international charities. In addition to the rummage sale, the Interact Club hosts the annual MitoKids Walk, scheduled on Saturday, April 27, in El Dorado Hills Town Center.
