Don’t miss the 2023 Community Leaf Raking Event happening on November 11, 2023. All volunteers should report to OLHMS at 9 am. Last year, more than 120 volunteers came out to rake leaves for the elderly and those otherwise not able to do so in the Oak Lawn and Hometown Communities.
“We want to make sure our students grow up and know the value of generosity and the value of service. The annual leaf raking event really helps instill those values in our kids. It is a great day for families to come together and do something to help those in our community who cannot always help themselves,” -- Paul Enderle, Superintendent.
Just like last year, the leaves raked will be picked up and transported to the D123 Community Garden to form the base of a compost that will be used during next year's planting season.
