Stories from Casa Hogar
College Hill's Experience at Casa Hogar
Members of our team spent the day outside, cleaning and "tuning up" the residents' bicycles, filling the tires with air and oiling the chains, then had the opportunity to play soccer with the kids, where they beat us in a lively and competitive game.
"Visiting Casa Hogar was a special and emotional day. We enjoyed getting to know the kids and learning more about their everyday lives," College Hill sales executive, Leann Grimm said. "The pride they take in all of their belongings is something to be [admired], and the kindness, respect and love they show each other is heartwarming."
College Hill staff also had the opportunity to take a tour of the grounds alongside Casa Hogar's Executive Director, Jayson, as well as meet some of the youth who live there.
"Volunteering at Casa Hogar was an emotional and fun experience. We learned about some of the youth there, and it was really eye-opening to hear about the struggles that some of them have been through," Poston said. "Casa Hogar is a special place where kids can feel safe and receive an education, like every child should be able to."

Project Spotlight: LLS Students of the Year
For years, College Hill has proudly teamed up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to create custom merchandise for incredible events like the Winter Pineapple Classic and the Firefighter Stairclimb. For the second year in a row, we were thrilled to sponsor the apparel for their Students of the Year program.
LLS is a philanthropic organization that is raising funds and awareness to fight blood cancer. Their Students of the Year program is a leadership development program aimed at high school students. This program helps them gain charitable experience, raise awareness to an important cause near to their hearts and nurture skills like entrepreneurship, project management and promotion/PR. They take part in a 7-week competition to see who can raise the most funds within their networks/community.
