CofC sophomore establishes non-profit, collects 1500 presents for kids

When she was in high school, Emily Hoisington wanted to adopt a classroom, so the senior and some of her classmates adopted two.

“I just really felt it in my heart that I just wanted to show these kids some love, and I thought what a better way to do it than at Christmas time.”

Last year that number grew to 46 classrooms spurring the now college sophomore to establish Charleston Hope, a non-profit organization that serves title one schools. This year the organization adopted 78 classrooms.
