Hope Pack Drive at Memorial Park in Houston, TX – April 15th:
We are having our first Kids Helping Kids Hope Pack Drive in Houston this coming April 15th and are looking for volunteers in the area that could come out and assist us that day. We’ll need help with set-up/tear down, check in, activity booths, and more. We’ll be posting more specifics on these soon. If you think you could help that day, email us at email@example.com
During the month of June if your office raises $1,000 or collects 25 complete Hope Packs you will be featured as a sponsor in signage during and social media prior to Carrying Hope’s Kids Helping Kids Hope Pack Drive on July 14. The top businesses that collect the most will receive a breakfast taco or pizza party served by our adorable mascot, Hope the Hedgehog.
Hope Pack Drive at Mueller Park in Austin, TX – July 14th:
We loved having last year’s Kids Helping Kids Hope Pack Drive at the Browning Hangar in Mueller Park and we’re doing it again this summer.We’ll need help with set-up/tear down, check in, activity booths, and more. More details to come. If you’d like to come out and help that day, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope for the Holidays:
Looking for a meaningful way to give back during the holidays? Every year Carrying Hope spreads holiday cheer to children the who need it the most by partnering with several local foster agencies. Our 2017 holiday projects are through, but we’ll be doing them again in 2018!
Sponsor A Child:
Make A Hope Pack:
For under $100 you can make a Hope Pack, a backpack or diaper bag filled with comfort items and essentials intended to help ease the transition for children who are entering a new foster home. Our goal is to offer items that a child entering foster care would either need or could find comfort in during those first 24 to 48 hours in care — you would be amazed what a fresh pair of jammies and a soft teddy bear can do for a child in crisis. Hope Packs also allow foster parents to focus solely on a child in those first crucial hours and days instead of rushing out to the store.
Donate or Host a Drive to Collect Most-Needed Items:
We’ve had several classrooms and offices put together a drive to collect most needed items that can be used to fill Hope Packs. It’s a great way to get a group of people involved to help us reach our goal in providing a Hope Pack to every child entering into the foster care system within Central Texas.
Make A Monetary Donation:
Almost a 100% of our proceeds go directly to making Hope Packs so you’ll know your contribution will be used to help a foster child during their moment of crisis.
