In the society we live in today, education remains an inaccessible right for millions of children around the world. Mostly due to the persisting inequality matters as well as the financial differences each family experiences, children are not able to develop their education to the fullest. In response, Hopestic seeks to narrow this gap by working with The Children’s Aid Society to provide kids across New York City with more materials. With such, we started a book drive around our neighborhood in hopes of collecting new/good condition books for underprivileged children in the City. After a three weeks book collection period, Hopestic was able to raise over 450 books for the Children’s Aid Society! We owe a huge thank you to the Pegasus Club at Jericho High School for sponsoring us and allowing for such a meaningful event to be successfully carried out. Check out the photos we took as well as the blog we created to document our trip to the city!
