Miller Swim School fills the pool with annual program
After founders Larry and Rita Miller started Miller Swim School in Tulsa more than two decades ago, the couple knew they wanted to give back to their community.
The Millers started their annual Christmas project, called “Fill the Pool”. This year, they have partnered with Tulsa Public School Sequoyah Elementary and have adopted more than 75 families.
The annual Christmas program has been going on for more than 15 years. According to a news release sent out by the Miller Swim School, the children are the first priority with the annual community give-back program, but they want to help entire families as well.
Every November, they choose an “underserved” community to help. The Miller Swim School tries to find a community that is in the local area and adopt them for the Christmas season.
Miller Swim School staff and families that attend the school take part in the “Fill the Pool” program.
This will be the third year working with the Sequoyah Elementary School. Miller Swim School has also adopted Springdale Elementary School this year, which is a sister school to Sequoyah.
The needs and wants for each family are provided and Miller Swim School staff and families will choose a family to adopt and help this winter.
All the gifts were stored at the Tulsa and Jenks Miller Swim School locations and then picked up for delivery last Friday.
