HOK’s future generation of architects, engineers and designers jumped in hands-first to help a worthy cause. The HOK St. Louis Diversity Task Force is sponsoring a back-to-school supply drive (August 17-21), collecting school supplies for two St. Louis community schools: Lyon-Blow Middle School and Wilkinson @ Roe Early Childhood Education Center.
To kick-off the event, the team hosted a special “KIDZ” art event where employees’ children helped decorate the supply drive boxes with some good old-fashioned hand painting.
“Thank you so much for making this a super fun event,” said Laura Zimmerman, of the HOK St. Louis accounting group. ”My son Robert had a great time, and I think my mom (Robert’s grandma) had just has much fun,”
The kids team included: Katie & Grace Snelling, Mary & Quin Moore, Julianna & Luca Crang, Paul Goessling, Meredith Heuring, Warren Stubblefield, Robert & Grandma Cathy Zimmerman, Nolan Earlwine, Grace Trowbridge and Viola & Caiti Malina. Check out these kids in action!
