Never Forget 🇺🇸 . We had so much fun helping pack lunches yesterday for #911 day! Together with many other amazing Chicago volunteers, we packed 305,000 lunches to give back to our community. Serving others is a passion of ours at HOPES and we are grateful to be surrounded by so many people helping to better our city.
Did you know that 1/4 children in the U.S. grow up without learning to read? 📖 That’s why at HOPES we’re dedicated to promoting literacy among Chicago’s homeless youth. Celebrate National Read a Book Day by donating or volunteering to help support our mission! Click the link in our bio to learn how you can get involved.
We celebrated #backtoschool season yesterday by giving out over 100 backpacks filled with school supplies! Now these students are equipped with the tools they need to have their best school year yet! 😁🎒📝💯🤸
Meet our volunteer of the month: Kelly Youngstrom!! 🏆 . . . When asked what was most rewarding about being a HOPES volunteer she said: “Having the opportunity to see kids get excited to experience and learn new things. A lot is little moments- seeing a kid who wasn't excited about reading, advance in levels. Or being able to witness the joy the kids had when we went to the zoo that was open just for HOPES!” Thank you Kelly for your dedication to our students! . . . We are currently accepting volunteers for our Fall 2019 Program. Click the link in our bio to learn how you can become part of our team this fall!

When these kindergarteners learned that there are kids who are less fortunate then themselves, they chose HOPES as the organization for their lemonade fundraiser. We are inspired by the generosity of these youth and grateful for their contribution! 🍋
