HFC Celebrates 80 Years with 80 Acts of Kindness

80th anniversary pin

As part of its 80th anniversary celebration, HFC is launching its 80 Acts of Kindness Initiative as a way of thanking the communities it serves for their support over the last eight decades.

The 80 Acts of Kindness Initiative originated through the HFC Advancement Office to encourage HFC employees, students, alumni, and retirees to engage in various volunteering opportunities that support the community in meaningful ways.

This initiative is a work in progress. An 80th Anniversary Advisory Committee has been formed to discuss events and activities associated with HFC’s 80 years of academic and community excellence.
