A DAY IN THE #HIVELIFE: ON DECEMBER 13, 2014, HUNDREDS OF VOLUNTEERS JOINED THE HIVE SOCIETY AND THE #HASHTAGLUNCHBAG HOUSTON TEAM TO ASSEMBLE AND DISTRIBUTE 817 LUNCHES TO HOUSTON’S HOMELESS.
For those of you who are still unfamiliar with our organization, hopefully this will enlighten you a bit. The Hive Society is a collective of young Houstonians who consider themselves lovers of music, art, culture and community. We believe in philanthropy and using our passions of music and art to fulfill our mission.
During the holiday season, on top of adopting deserving families in need for Christmas, we also partnered with the #HashtagLunchbag Houston team for a holiday edition of the social movement that has swept the nation. You may recall the very first #HashtaglunchbagHou in the Summer of 2014, where we were able to assemble 100+ volunteers to make 607 brown bag lunches that were distributed around Houston to feed homeless men, women, and children. For the holiday edition, we were able to coordinate 100+ volunteers to assemble and distributed over 800 lunches to Houston’s homeless! This was a huge improvement from our first one with an increase of over 200 lunches.
In the video below, documented by Ozieren, you get a short glimpse of what the Hive is all about!
In this #HiveLife short, we show you our true purpose and what we really pride ourselves on doing: FUN COMMUNITY SERVICE.
Being able to distribute food to those in need during the holidays was a very humbling experience. It makes you realize how blessed some of us really are, seeing many of those who, at this moment, are trying to survive in the freezing cold of the night in the streets. We should all take a moment to reflect on the very things we take for granted in times like this.
Keep following us and check in here on our site for more volunteer/philanthropy opportunities in the city of Houston. We appreciate all of the love and support and we hope to continue working with others in fulfilling the mission of making philanthropy cool, and a habit, for those in our community.
