Create Hope in a Box

Project Hope Alliance is a local Costa Mesa non-profit that's mission is to "end the cycle of homelessness, one child at a time".  Their staff has worked creatively during COVID to meet the needs of kids who are experiencing homelessness and to provide you and your whole family with monthly projects that you can do at home. 

Simply decorate and fill a box of gifts for a kid and include Valentine’s Day cards to share with their friends! These boxes will provide a sense of belonging and self-confidence that all kids deserve. Check out details HERE on what to pack and where to drop off your Hope in a Box.
