Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa volunteers donate school supplies
CATOOSA, Okla. – Students at the Helen Paul Learning Center now have more tools for success in their classrooms thanks to the largest school supply drive ever at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
Dozens of employees collected 2,207 boxes of pens, pencils, paper, folders, crayons, glue, highlighters, backpacks and other requested items during the summer.
“Helen Paul Learning Center has always been so grateful for our support,” Tiffani Revis, corporate food & beverage analyst for Cherokee Nation Entertainment, said. “Continual budget cuts have impacted many of our local schools, so assisting them with much-needed supplies will hopefully take some of the burden off of teachers and families.”
As each box arrived at the school, teachers couldn’t contain their excitement and gratitude for the much-needed relief.
“We feel blessed to have a community that supports our teachers and students,” Helen Paul Learning Center Principal Sandee Cross said. “These items not only directly help students, but many teachers reap the benefits of receiving the resources to use in their classrooms. They are extremely excited to be the recipients of such a generous gift that, in turn, relieves their own personal bank account.”
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. For more information, visit http://www.hardrockcasinotulsa.com
