Happenings - Pine-Richland Opportunities Fund



In this difficult time the need for blood and convalescent plasma is needed now. Since we are unable to host our annual blood drives in the school, four student leaders have created a virtual blood drive.

Student and community members can participate in PR’s blood drive from October 25 - November 8 by donating at any Vitalant Donor center. Visit Vitalant.org and click on “donate now” to make your appointment and find information on safety, antibody testing and donating convalescent plasma. Remember to use code “HS010058” for PR to receive credit towards scholarship fund.


We thank you so much for your compassion for our neighbors! Together, we raised $9,270 for North Hills Community Outreach!  Due to your overwhelming response, PROF raised our donation to $3,500 – which you generously matched – and then some!

Your thoughtful giving will provide much-needed services for families in our community.  As we stated in our letter to you, the NHCO will immediately put these funds to use to help our neighbors with their needs of food, clothing, emergency services and more. 

We continue to be amazed at the thoughtfulness of all who have contributed, especially during such uncertain times.  “Thank you” doesn’t seem nearly enough to express how grateful we are to be a part of such a caring community that supports one another – whether it is in this new initiative for our neighbors, PROF grants and scholarships programs, and in your time and talents you continuously share. 

"Where I Am From" - PROF-Supported Project Featured on WQED

WhereIAmFrom.jpgWith a grant from PROF, Mr. Riley brought together students from Pine-Richland High School students and students from his alma mater Woodland Hill High School to create art works about “where they are from,” just as Riley's exhibition will revolve around the same theme. The students' works will be presented on 12-inch panel surfaces. 

Mr. Riley said that “Where I Am From” is cultural experience that could not happen within a single school. “Where I Am From” unites two schools with vastly different socio-economic, ethnic and geographic dynamics. Mr. Ramon Riley is connecting students from both schools to share in the arts community.
