Contribution made by CNB, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa employees
CATOOSA, Okla. — Employee volunteers from Cherokee Nation Businesses and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa recently visited Helen Paul Learning Center to deliver donated supplies for classrooms in need. The effort was part of a company-wide initiative led by CNB to support community schools.
Employees donated more than 150 items to the school, including classroom necessities such as writing utensils, paper, folders and tissues.
"We have many kids who come to school without the needed supplies, so we maintain a supply closet to ensure they will have everything they need to be successful," said Tyra Haight, principal of Helen Paul Elementary. "We're extremely thankful to all the employees who provided these supplies. It is greatly appreciated."
The school supply drives were coordinated through the CNB’s Community Impact Team, which helps promote volunteerism and community engagement for all employees. Seventeen Cherokee Nation properties participated in the month-long drive, each designating its recipient school.
“We take great pride in being able to assist the students at Helen Paul Elementary,” said Danielle Eastham, senior administrative assistant for the CNB legal department. “It is important they have all the required supplies to be successful.”
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. For more information, visit www.hardrockcasinotulsa.com or call (800) 760-6700.
