HYPE Members Collect Toiletries for Hands on Hartford!

Apr 05, 2012

Hands_Of_HartfordEvery month the HYPE (Hartford Young Professionals & Entrepreneurs) hold a networking event called Get HYPEd.  The event is casual, free to attend, and held at a different location each month.  This month Get HYPEd took place Wednesday April 4th at Zula in Downtown Hartford.  HYPEsters were asked to bring toiletries to donate to Hands on Hartford an organization that coordinates shelters in the Hartford area.  They did not disappoint!  Approximately 120 HYPE members attended the event and a whopping 365 toiletry items were collected!  Toiletry items included soap, shampoo, lotion, toothbrushes and toothpaste and much more.  

GroupFor those interested in supporting Hands on Hartford further, they have two additional upcoming events.  One opportunity involves volunteering to conduct the Vulnerability Index at local shelters, and the other is to support Hands on Hartford through Foodshare’s 28th Annual Walk Against Hunger Fundraiser.  For more information please click here
