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 lines. With the current COVID-19 situation worsening and widespread negativity among the people, Hopestic wished to spread 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. For every day of this month, each of our members shared a quote 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 continuing to help others. The Arbors Assisted Living is a senior citizen home whom we got in contact with to create a project to entertain senior citizens who live there. Our project consisted of members creating arts and crafts videos for the seniors to virtually watch and learn from, giving them an opportunity to make their own art pieces. Every Tuesday and Friday, a member's video would be played for them to indulge in creating art pieces 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 to our other videos. For Hopestic, being able to show senior citizens that there are people out there who still care and love them during a pandemic is the most important outcome of these lessons.

 

Food Donation

May 27, 2020 - June 8, 2020

As the pandemic spreads, 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 own basic needs. Hopestic relieves this problem by approaching a local homeless shelter, a previous partner of ours, The Bethany House, to offer support and fundraise for supplies. They reached out to us regarding food shortages and explained how many may experience food rationing as a result. Hence, our team set up a fundraiser to raise money for 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 to their location.

Mask Donation

August 31, 2020

With the ongoing pandemic, many hospitals have run out of an essential supply - masks. The Hopestic Foundation acknowledges our local hospital's need for this medical equipment and through utilizing club funds, was able to donate over 500 masks (including both regular surgical masks and N95 masks) to the Northwell Hospital in Bethpage. In addition to these masks, our foundation also gave a hand-written letter addressed to all the staff members at the hospital who have helped in any way shape, or form during this pandemic. All members of the Hopestic Foundation contributed to the letter by providing personalized messages of what they wanted to say to the hospital staff.
