Want to meet some generous Pirates? Just walk around the Perkins Schools.


Students ponied up 738 shoebox-sized gifts across Perkins Local School District’s four buildings in the annual Project Happy campaign to benefit kids in need at the holiday season.

High schools students on Wednesday afternoon gathered outside the Perkins Administrative Service Center’s door to help load the gifts onto a van provided by OHgo, the Sandusky nonprofit that collects the gifts and distributes them to children. OHgo organizers Christine Boesch and Kendra Faulkner had little room left in the van after it was packed with gift boxes.


Perkins students had reason to celebrate – not only did the district surpass the 256 gifts donated in 2017, but they also beat the competition. As part of this year’s Project Happy campaign, Perkins students challenged Edison Schools and Huron Schools to see who could collect the most gift boxes.

Edison students collected 520 gift boxes and Huron students collected 230.


The gift boxes included dolls, Legos and other small toys, as well as school supplies, personal care items, and treats. The gift boxes were designated for either a boy or girl.


Here is the final tally by school for the number of gift boxes collected:

  • Furry Elementary: 101

  • Meadowlawn Intermediate School: 64

  • Briar Middle School: 161

  • Perkins High School: 412
