Adopt a Classroom 2014

Charleston Hope

A note from the President:

Before we tell you the numbers and facts of this year's Adopt a Classroom, I want to start off first by saying thank you! This year was much more challenging then the past few years as our courses in college got harder, life got more demanding, and our numbers expanded! We could not have accomplished this without our amazing team or all of you! Because of your donations, we were able to raise close to $7,000 which enabled us to feed one school lunch, provide 4 schools with dessert, and buy close to 300 presents! On top of this, our amazing classroom sponsors adopted over 110 classrooms! I am overwhelmed with the support that you all have given us and I believe that together, we can continue to reach more children through many different projects and continue to restore hope to the next generation!
