Monthly Motivation: July 2021

Meet Aparna and Adrija, two local high schoolers who attend Basis Peoria and work with The Chetana Foundation to serve their local community. Aparna and Adrija were looking for a local organization to serve this summer and Google led them to HCC. The girls wanted to help local kids in some capacity and HCC’s Back-2-School outreach was just what they were searching for. Making and selling homemade brownies and muffins, Aparna and Adrija raised over $4,000 to purchase 562 backpacks and supplies to fill each one! This pair of friends is HCC’s largest Back-2-School donor, proving once again your age doesn’t matter. All it takes is a little effort (and a LOT of chocolate!) to make a huge impact.
