Carrying Hope Volunteers
It's that time of year again –– Hope the Hedgehog's 5th Birthday and the 5th anniversary of Carrying Hope becoming a 501c3 nonprofit –– and we're splashing into summer by providing an amazing pool party at Dell Diamond's on-site right field swimming pool for 50 children living in local shelters and residential treatment centers.
These foster children will be given a fun afternoon and evening of swimming, dinner, drinks and a baseball game on Thursday, July 29, and Carrying Hope will also send them home with Hope Packs containing gift cards so they can shop for new school clothes to give them a little extra confidence as they enter the new school year!
We are looking for 50 volunteers to help us donate $50 and $100 gift cards to give these deserving children and teens, many who have not had the opportunity to pick out their very own brand new clothes before, a wardrobe refresh as they begin school this fall.
Here are details on how you can help: Sign up here and either visit www.carryinghope.com/donate to make a $50 or $100 donation - or - mail us a $50 or $100 Target gift card by July 20 to Carrying Hope, 9600 Escarpment Blvd. Ste. 745-239, Austin, TX 78749.
Thank you so much for helping us to bring extra comfort, joy and confidence to the children in our community who need it most!
