Carrying Hope’s annual Summer Drives!

July 2023

It’s that time of year again –– Hope the Hedgehog’s Birthday and the anniversary of Carrying Hope becoming a 501c3 nonprofit –– and we’re splashing into summer by hosting fun-filled pool parties in both Austin and Houston  for 60 children and teens living in local shelters and residential treatment centers. In addition to a splashy day of fun in the sun, each of these kids will go home with Hope Packs containing $100 gift cards so they can shop for new clothes that will enable them to enter the new school year with some added confidence and style.
Can you help us by donating $50 or $100 toward the purchase of gift cards for these deserving children and teens? Find details and sign up here!
