  • Hope Pack Packing Party

    November 15, 2019  4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    Circle C Community Center, 7817 La Crosse Ave, Austin, TX 78739, USA

    Carrying Hope is looking for 60 volunteers to help us to create hundreds of Hope Packs for children entering foster care on Friday, November 15 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Circle C Community Center (7817 La Crosse Ave, Austin, TX 78739). Carrying Hope will bring the supplies––we just need helping hands to pack and tag them! Adults and families with children are welcome!

    We request that each of our volunteers purchase an item from our most-needed list to bring with them on their volunteer day. All items must be new (with tags/in packaging) and fit inside of a backpack. Or if you prefer, you can make a monetary donation to go towards items for a Hope Pack for any amount, prior to volunteering. Thank you for helping us provide comfort to children in a moment of crisis and ensuring no child arrives empty handed or with a trash bag on their first night in a new home. Sign up to attend this volunteer event here!
