We had a fantastic response to the Hopleaf "Peirce Day" event. So much so, we beat our goal of $20,000 and raised just over $30,000 to support school programs. THANK YOU!

To keep the momentum going we have planned several other opportunities to support Peirce in the coming weeks. We have designed these events and programs to allow everyone in our community to participate and contribute.

Hopleaf donates $30,000 to Peirce

Wow! The Peirce, Andersonville, Edgewater and Hopleaf community really came through on Sunday! We were expecting a good crowd and we got a GREAT crowd. From open to close, Hopleaf was "hopping" with every table occupied within 30 minutes of opening and a steady stream of customers all day long.

Our goal was $20,000. Not only did we meet our goal, we CRUSHED it! You helped us raise over $30,000 for Peirce on Sunday. This is truly amazing and humbling for everyone involved.
