Where to Donate "Holiday Hope Chests"

By Beth Newingham on December 14, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

During the holiday season, we donate hope chests, filled with toys and games, to a local children's hospital. However, the hope chests can also be made for children in homeless shelters, orphanages, foster homes, soup kitchens, domestic violence shelters, low-income pediatric clinics, or low-income day care centers.

I really like this idea and think it can be re-purposed for other times of the year as in back-to-school backpacks and supplies.
