The BOMA Community Services committee needs your assistance collecting items for Carrying Hope, a nonprofit supporting children entering the foster care system in Texas.
A Hope Pack is a backpack filled with items that children entering the foster care system need most, from necessities, such as hygiene items, to comfort items, such as stuffed animals and books. These packs are intended to ease the transition for kids as they go into care.
Our goal is to collect enough items for 30 Hope Packs and deliver to Carrying Hope in October. Items can be purchased directly from our Amazon Registry through September 30th or brought to the next BOMA Austin Luncheon.
