Diving into the morning’s packed schedule, 42 Hutong School volunteers and ABC staff worked together to clean two foster homes and transport furniture and supplies. The volunteers comprised students from various high schools across the United States. In spite of the challenges presented by moving furniture up multiple floors, the Hutong School volunteers persevered to accomplish the task at hand. Brooms, towels, mops, and buckets moved in sync as boxes and furniture settled into their proper locations.
As a result of the collaborative group effort on Wednesday, June 27th, the foster homes’ initially cluttered and dusty environment became organized and presentable. With a new class of DREAM program students arriving next week, this event was essential in preparing comfortable homes where they can live and learn for this upcoming year.
