Project Description: Give More HUGS unites communities to help disadvantaged students have access to educational materials, books with inspirational messages, free Book Share Fairs, and backpacks filled with school supplies while working with students to become leaders who serve and improve their communities. My team and I will train students at schools to implement Project Based Service Learning (PBSL) to help improve communities through educational projects; host annual book and school supplies drives in South Central Texas and Greater New York regions; and increase community partners. Our goal is to help 10,000 students in the upcoming year!
