COVID-19 Projects

Positivity Forum

April 1, 2020 - May 1, 2020

As the month of April begins, many of us are worried about our friends, families, and medical workers battling on the front line. With the current COVID-19 situation worsening and widespread negativity among the people, Hopestic wanted to focus on spreading optimism. We would like to remind everyone that we are all in this together, and we just have to keep fighting through with a smile upon our faces. During these difficult times, we wish to spread hope and positivity through our various platforms. Hence, for every day of this month, each of our members will share a quote that they believe has value in promoting positivity and showing encouragement. Through this simple project, we hope to cheer everyone on. For more posts, click on the link to our Instagram. Stay strong!

Virtual Art Lessons

May 21, 2020 - June 22, 2020

During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are at home in quarantine. However, we refused to let our situation prevent us from being able to continue to help others. The Arbors Assisted Living is a senior citizen home, who we got in contact with to see if we could help create project to entertain the senior people who live there. Our project consisted of our members creating arts and crafts videos for the seniors to virtually watch and learn from, hence giving them the ability to make their own art pieces. Every Tuesday and Friday, another member's video was played for the men and women, and they were able to indulge in creating an art piece for themselves. Although this was a simple idea, the feedback we got back was fantastic! The seniors were zealous and beyond happy watching our videos, they genuinely looked forward for another video. These virtual art lessons were a nice way for us to help the people who live at Arbors Livings to try something new but also feel as though people still love and care for them. That is the most important outcome of these lessons.

Food Donation

May 27, 2020 - June 8, 2020

As the pandemic spread, it is often difficult for individuals to purchase groceries and supplies, needless to discuss organizations and groups that strive to feed more than ten people who are not yet financially active to support their basic needs. Hopestic strives to relieve this problem by approaching several shelters to offer support and fund raise for supplies. Out of these shelters, we were contacted by a previous partner of ours, The Bethany House, which is a non-profit agency that helps provide shelter and service for homeless women and children. They reached out to us regarding food shortages and may experience food rationing as a result. Hence, our team set up a fundraiser to raise money for these snacks and groceries. After reaching our goal amount in just two weeks later, we purchased eight large boxes of food and beverages, which were personally delivered by our co-founders on Monday, June 8th.
