We are hoping to collect as many as 4,000 single subject notebooks, which will be distributed to children in Holyoke, giving them a head start on the upcoming school year.

Each year the HSNI puts on this drive to help those in need in Holyoke.  They are hoping to fill 2,000 backpacks with various school supplies.  The backpacks will be distributed to children at a special event in August.

If you would like to help enhance the education of Holyoke’s students, please bring your donations to HCU’s main office at 490 Westfield Road in Holyoke.  There is a donation box in the lobby.

Help the children of Holyoke start the school year off on the right foot!
