Hope Totes

Operation Hope Tote is the collection of personal care items used to create hygiene kits for infants, children, and adults and are distributed to the homeless and those in need throughout the year. It’s a great way to visibly show we care.

Individuals and groups can run a Hope Tote drive at any time of the year. Click on the button below for a list of items needed or to make a monetary donation so we can purchase items in bulk.
