We started Carrying Hope in the summer of 2016 and have been so inspired by the positive response, volunteers and donations that have made it possible for us to deliver Hope Packs to all of the agencies in Region 7 (Austin and surrounding areas). We’re thrilled to have been featured in various media outlets including Great Day Houston, KXAN Today, FOX Austin, and the Austin American-Statesman podcast Statesman Shots. Check out a sampling of the segments below
