Holland Hall Middle School students participated in a Day of Service Feb. 23 during the second annual event helping nine Tulsa area organizations.

The day kicked off with a pep rally at the school led by the upper school students. More than 375 middle school students then set out and volunteered their time at a variety of Tulsa-area organizations. Duties ranged from cleaning and organizing to removing graffiti and planting trees.

“Helping in the community helps build character and leadership in these students,” said Heather Brasel, Holland Hall director of communication and Marketing. “Volunteering at an early age will keep them involved as they get older, and it gives them the chance to learn that helping where there is a need is the ultimate community partnership.”

Holland Hall students volunteered at the following locations:

Dream Center – cleaning, organizing and general preparations for those in need;
EduRec – cleaning, fixing, organizing;

Tulsa Youth Ranch – general upkeep and organization of ranch (no equine), gardening, landscaping;

Happy Hands – partnering with teachers to work in classrooms with students, along with light cleaning;

YMCA West – preparing campgrounds – building steps, raking, gardening, cleaning;
Crosstown Learning – graffiti removal and partnering with teachers to clean rooms and interact with students;

Up With Trees – planting 30 new trees and general earth care;
HOW Foundation – organization of donations for thrift store;
Tulsa Youth Services – building snack packs and cleaning activity center.
