TULSA - A Green Country school serving children with developmental and physical disabilities is in need of some extra hands in the classroom.

The Little Light House is holding an orientation today for potential volunteers.

The school needs at least 50 more volunteers before the new year.

The need comes after the school expanded from eight to 10 classrooms earlier this year, serving nearly 50 new families.

Operations Director Jessica Mardis said volunteers can help in several ways, since each child has a different need.

This includes administrative needs for annual fundraisers or in the classroom which is their greatest need.

“Maybe a child has not learned how to use their voice to talk, so we’re using alternative means to community, sign language, maybe some iPads to help them with that," said Mardis. "Some kids are learning to grasp and independent feeding and just need a little extra support to develop those skills."

Mardis said students are there from 8:30 to 1:30 pm which is the ideal time to volunteer, but that any amount you can give is helpful in their mission.

The orientation will last just over an hour.

You’ll get a tour and talk about the hours you’d be able to volunteer that works with your schedule.

It starts at noon on Wednesday at the Little Light House.
