Cole's Hope is kicked off our 1st Annual "HOPE in a Box" Christmas Campaign in December 2015. We delivered 85 shoe box sized gift boxes full of gifts and food cards to local area high schools to be given to unaccompanied homeless teens. In 2016 we delivered 67 HOPE boxes to homeless teens! During the holiday season, many food drives and gift drives take place, but it is the homeless high school teens who are often the forgotten few as we tend to focus on families with small children. Our goal is provide a little HOPE and bring a smile to teens in Jefferson County. HOPE in a Box gift boxes will be delivered to each school the week before Christmas.
We delivered 152 "HOPE in a Box" gift boxes to unaccompanied homeless teens in Jefferson County, MO since Dec. 2015!
