In an effort to continue its altruistic spirit, Coca-Cola decided to help young university students to continue their studies. As it is well known, education in the U.S. is not cheap, hence the company decided to allocate $ 150,000 to the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF).
The main objective of this collaboration is to promote and expand opportunities for thousands of young Latinos living in the United States who, for economic reasons, have been unable to continue their studies.
The manager of the brand, Juan Pablo Gonzalez, considers it necessary to provide opportunities for young Hispanics to achieve their educational goals in order for them to become the leaders that the society needs.
The theater chain Regal Cinema has also joined this initiative, and has already allocated $ 25,000 to support the cause.
Anyone who needs the support of Coca-Cola can register at www.Coke.com/ForTheDream. The grants range between $ 500 and $ 5000 per person.
