Since its inception, Hugs Plus Learning Centers has been dedicated to giving back to its local communities through philanthropic involvement, scholarship funds and more:
A Year of Fundraisers to Benefit the Make a Wish Foundation
To celebrate our 30th year of business (my how time flies!) Hugs Plus Learning Centers organized a full year of fundraisers and events to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation. From bake sales and art auctions to dropping spare change in our own wishing wells and selling Hugs Plus cookbooks, our staff, students and parents were able to raise $3,000 while teaching children the value of compassion, kindness and generosity.
I.J. Fisher Scholarship
The I.J. Fisher Scholarship was created and supported by Hugs Plus to benefit college students who are pursuing a Bachelor's degree and career in Early Childhood Education. The goal of this scholarship is to ensure that our future teachers have an opportunity to reach their dreams.
Boston Bruins PJ Drive
During the month of February 2016 Hugs Plus Learning Centers partnered with the Boston Bruins and Cradles to Crayons to collect pajamas for children in need all across the state of Massachusetts! Parents, children and families participated in activities throughout the month to help celebrate our PJ Drive....including our favorite "Pajama Day!" We were very happy with the amount of pajamas collected by each of our schools!
