Gift of Hope culminated their series of events in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month by honoring students of the school Jose Clemente Orozco Academy.
CHICAGO, OCT. 28th, 2014.- For a second consecutive year, children became teachers through their participation in the annual contest "A Story for Hope." Once again Gift of Hope offered this creative platform which allowed students from 1st to 8th grade to open the door to their world and show us the significance and importance of organ and tissue donation as seen through their eyes.
Gift of Hope brought Hispanic Heritage Month to a close while accomplishing their mission to encourage literacy in Spanish and prompting a conversation about organ and tissue donation at an early age and within their family circle.
