STUDENT PREPARATION ASSOCIATION (SPA)
We are excited to introduce a new division of The HOTL:
S - Student
P - Preparation
A - Association.
Our primary objective is to assist student members, as well as the outside community with the necessary tools to aide in their success throughout the school year. We are dedicated to helping children in need.
SPA was founded by Lorraine Rogers Jackson, and First Lady Grace Rogers in an effort to provide assistance to parents in our communities in need of backpacks and supplies for kids K-12. The program will also offer college scholarships and academic achievement awards to our attending student members, and to supply care packages to the student members of our organization who are currently attending college.
SPA currently has 2 working goals for 2017
Goal # 1:
Donate 200 or more backpacks and supplies to children in need in our community. At 4pm- 6pm On August 20th at 5530 Marlboro Pike, District Heights, MD 20747 we will donate backpacks and supplies to hundreds of kids in need. to make a donation please contact us using the contact link on this page. All donations should be received by August 11, 2017.
Goal # 2:
Send out quarterly care packages to college students. To receive these packages you or your parent must be a member of The HOTL North or South. These care packages will be sent 3 times a year: At the beginning of each school year, after winter break, and after spring break.
All recipients of the care packages must fill out a profile application and send it back no later then June 15 of each preceding school year. Profile applications can be requested by clicking on the contact us link on this page or by emailing us at email@example.com. Please include "SPA APPLICATION" in the subject line.
