Deloitte Volunteers Make a Big Impact at HISD Schools

Hamilton, Reagan, and Wharton all reap benefits from organization's "Impact Day"
June 14, 2011
Almost 500 volunteers from Deloitte, an international company that provides financial services, descended on three HISD schools on June 10 to participate in campus beautification projects as a part of that organization’s twelfth annual “Impact Day.”

About 300 of those volunteers went to Hamilton Middle School in the Houston Heights, where they repainted classrooms, moved equipment, and completed dozens of landscaping tasks.

The remaining volunteers completed service projects at Reagan High School and Wharton Dual Language Academy.

The goal, said Deloitte volunteer Anne Taylor, is to make the campuses more attractive to students, so that “hopefully, we can create an environment in which they’re going to feel even more anxious to excel.”
