Check out the list below for some additional ways you and your family can get involved in helping children who are entering the foster care system.
Make A Hope Pack:
For under $100 you can make a Hope Pack––a backpack or diaper bag filled with new, age-appropriate 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 48 hours in a new home— 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:
Entire classrooms or offices can help us by organizing 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:
Carrying Hope is a volunteer-run nonprofit so 100 percent of your donation is going directly toward making Hope Packs for children entering foster care.
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. Check back with us in the fall to sign up for one of these events.
You can also email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or ideas on how you’d like to get involved.
