On June 19, more than 125 attorneys, staff, family members, and clients from Holland and Hart LLP celebrated the 20th anniversary of its Salt Lake City office with a day of service at Kearns Junior High Community School.
Starting this fall, all 9th grade students and teachers from Kearns Junior High will be moved to Kearns High School. This major transition created a great need for helping hands to offer assistance to the staff and faculty of Kearns Junior.
Volunteers completed 16 different projects, including the tasks of painting, landscaping, cleaning lockers, auditorium chairs, and windows, organizing drama costumes and donated clothing, refurbishing two long-jump pits, assembling registration packets, moving musical instruments and furniture to new classrooms, and helping prepare rooms for the fall when students come back to school.
The 500+ hours of work and various donations given by the volunteers of Holland and Hart made a significant impact at Kearns Junior High. The overwhelming to do list of tasks that needed to be completed prior to school starting in the fall was significantly lessened thanks to their generosity.
This service project was chosen by Holland and Hart in response to Gov. Gary Herbert’s “Year of Service in Utah” challenge, which asked citizens of Utah to volunteer an additional 20 hours of service in their communities. We encourage each of you to do your part to heed the call from Governor Herbert! Show how you LIVE UNITED by signing up to participate in service projects in our community.
