The founding opportunity for SOS occurred within days of the Hempfield tornado & the Japanese tsunami in Spring 2011. FRMS students worked together to create an in & out-of-school project. 50 students traveled to the Westmoreland Co. Salvation Army to organize donations to be given to those affected by the tornado. 49 of the 50 stated they had never volunteered before, and all 50 stated they would love to do again. These responses became the genesis of SOS.
