The “Boxes of Hope” full of donations are given to families that are leaving the shelter as support while they start over in their new residence. This can be as grand or as small of a project as your girls would like to make it. Let them discuss and decide with your help! It is SO easy to make a positive difference in someone’s life! All we need to do is….

1. Have the girls wrap each box in plain paper (top and bottom separately so the box can be filled and then covered). Decorate as many boxes as the girls would like with messages of hope, love, and any other positive message or artwork that your girls would like to share (no names on the boxes please).

2. Collect donations from the wish list below and fill your decorated boxes.

3. Contact Project Hope and arrange a drop off time (if you would like to take your girls, they will receive a wonderful “THANK YOU” and a free tour of the shelter if you would like), OR
