Welcome to our Club!
HUGS (aka Hugs2Honduras) began in 2013!
This club is dedicated to supporting educational efforts, students, and teachers in schools in the outskirts of Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
Beginnings of the Club...
Mrs. Delp's Spanish classes were very moved by lessons about the daily economic struggles many students face in this region.
Learning how people are living in homes made of mud and sticks, with poorly ventilated fire/stoves, and the sad state of schools in many parts of Honduras, really left an impression.
In class, students wrote letters to orphans in Honduras and the boys at Flor Azul, a boys farm.
School supplies and backpacks were also collected to send to the boys.
The trimester ended, but Their desire to do MORE blossomed, and thus, the hugs2honduras club was born.
We focus our meetings on getting to know one another and finding fun ways to serve the educational needs of these children.
100% of the funds raised through our activities go to fund school uniform purchases, build schools, purchase special supplies, or fund a special project that will benefit them.
Examples of our previous fundraisers include:
a "wildly famous" fall Tshirt sale
$ collection/bracelet sales
School supply drives
EVERYONE is welcome at our club meetings.
NEW THIS YEAR, we hope to expand our reach to help other underserved groups too...
HUGS!... Helping Underserved Groups!
so we have opted to add new activities that allow us to focus on helping other groups too!
