Carrying Hope Volunteers
Carrying Hope is in need of volunteers to make nearly 200 Holiday Hope Packs for children who will spend the holiday season in local foster homes. Each Holiday Hope Pack will include a new set of pajamas, a new stuffed animal, and 1-3 items from your child's wishlist. After you sign up to make a Holiday Hope Pack, you will be emailed a list with your child's name, age and wishlist -- you will receive this email no later than Oct. 23. On average, each Holiday Hope Pack will cost around $100 to make. Carrying Hope will provide backpacks to place smaller items in when you drop them off; please be sure all items for your child are labeled with his/her/their name.
All complete Holiday Hope Packs must be dropped off on or before Dec. 6. You may bring them to Carrying Hope's Winter Holiday Bash from 3-5 p.m. Dec. 6 at the Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Drive, or coordinate a drop-off with us prior to that date. Our office at 8711 Burnet, E-52, is open every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and we would be glad to accept Holiday Hope Packs then, too. If you have questions or are a company that would like to sponsor multiple Holiday Hope Packs this season, please email [email protected].
