Student members of Full Sail’s Pure Motivation group recently had the opportunity to volunteer with community outreach team Hope Now International’s Back to School Bash. The all-day event – held at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando – provided thousands of Central Florida students and their families with free school supplies, health screenings, vaccinations, haircuts, and more as they prepare for the start of a new school year. Hope Now International also provided 12,000 free backpacks, which were packed with supplies by Full Sail student volunteers.
Pure Motivation holds monthly events that bring Full Sail’s student body together to help aid different community-based organizations that are in need. Since the group’s launch in 2008, students have contributed their creative compassion in a variety of efforts designed to positively impact the local community, including collaborations with Read Across America, Harvest Time International, Wreaths Across America, Give Kids the World, and more.
