The Outreach, Unity and Renewal Club (OUR club) has hosted holiday parties for Loliana Hale, a transitional housing shelter for families, for more than 30 years.

On Oct. 29 club members threw the annual Halloween party for the children living at Loliana Hale.

The nine students did face painting, applied temporary tattoos and played games with the children.

Senior Nicole Pagdilao said, “I was in charge of a game called ‘pin the wart on the witch’ where we blindfolded the kids and spun them around multiple times. All of the children were very friendly and talkative. They also showed great sportsmanship and those waiting in line were constantly laughing and smiling at their friends while they were trying to pin the wart on the witch.”

OUR club centers its activities on community outreach to give students an opportunity to help others. The activities provide practical experiences for students while meeting a need for less fortunate residents in the community.

Senior Kayla Galima said, “I wanted to make sure that these families had a sweet, fun-filled Halloween that they deserved. Even though the activities were simple, the children were excited and showed their appreciation. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to help these families celebrate the holiday.”
