On Friday August 26th, Stanbridge College REACH lent their support to Project Hope School by serving lunch and donating food to the students and their families. Faculty and staff served over 30 children with a pizza party.
According to Stanbridge College Director of Faculty Development for the Vocational Nursing Program, Judy Corless, “It was such a thrill to see the childrens’ faces light up with big smiles as they came in to receive their lunch. I had a wonderful time helping the REACH team serve food. The students and staff at Project Hope School were very grateful for having us there. It warmed my heart to be a part of this event.”
Started in 1989 from a school teacher teaching children from the back seat of a car, Project Hope School empowers homeless children with education and instruction in multi-grade classrooms from kindergarten to eighth. These students lack permanent housing and generally live in motels or shelters around Orange County.
Stanbridge College is pleased to be constant supporter of the students and staff at Project Hope School. Please visit the REACH Upcoming events website for more events supporting Project Hope.
