Students demonstrate passion for community action Posted: February 21, 2013

The importance of community service and giving back is something that is increasingly being taught at a young age. Parents and educators stress to young people not only the need for volunteering and fundraising, but the internal satisfaction and reward those children can feel when they know they’ve helped others who may be unable to help themselves.

OLHSA’s Annual Walk for Warmth provides many opportunities for people of all ages to get involved in community action. Young and old will come together this month to lend a hand in these exciting events, all while raising funds to keep the heat on for families in Oakland and Livingston Counties

While many choose to make donations, sponsor or volunteer in the Walk events, others find creative ways to contribute to OLHSA’s cause. One local group of students has taken it upon themselves to do just that. Students at Reuther Middle School, located in Rochester Hills, will be selling cotton candy at the school on February 21 – 22, with all proceeds being donated to Walk for Warmth.


OLHSA would like to send a special thank you to the students at Reuther Middle School. We are inspired by their dedication and drive to get involved with helping their community. Their commitment of generosity will deliver warmth to hearts and homes of the people who need it most.
