Programs Overview

At Give More HUGS (GMH) we realize that the lack of proper school supplies, resources, and support can greatly impair a student’s academic success. We also know that the lack of academic resources can make effective lesson planning more difficult for teachers. We strive to unite with giving souls to provide students in need with the tools that inspire a love for learning, reading, and creativity!

GMH needs community partners like you to unite with us to help make sure each child is given the tools to actively participate in a quality education. Learn more about our programs and how we aim to help teachers while they motivate students to achieve both personal and academic success. Each year, we impact over 2,000 students’ lives in Texas, New York, Connecticut, Dominica, and Dominican Republic. We have created a unique model to engage communities to help spread GMH programs in the communities we work in. Check out each program and learn how you can get involved to support the #GiveMoreHUGS movement!
