Project HOPE

Helping Our People Everyday

Project HOPE is a collaboration of the heart. Torrance Council of PTAs mission is to positively impact the lives of all children and families. We work hand in hand with TUSD and other entities to support our homeless students and their families. We rely on generous donations from the 30 schools in TUSD and local businesses and churches to supply food, toiletries, school supplies, hotel vouchers and other items as the need arises. Another way we support the students is by supplying the kids with costumes for Halloween, and Dresses, hair and makeup and tuxes for Prom.
