Your October Service Learning Rewind
On Sunday October 3, the first Tikkun Olam field trip took place in Pearblossom, CA. This trip was in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, and around 13 dTHS students took part. Students spent the day getting their hands dirty cleaning up a woman’s home who sadly had a lot of her land destroyed from the wildfires. Students came prepared to work, wearing protective glasses, gloves, and hats. They spent the day cutting up dead trees apart and pulling out different types of plants to allow for more space on the woman’s land. Senior Debra G. said, “Going to the woman’s house opened my eyes to the destruction that wildfires truly have on us. It also made me and others more self aware about our planet and to nurture the earth in general.”
Kol Hakavod to Debra and all of the others who took time on the weekend to go out and make a difference in repairing the world!
