Cole's Hope sponsored countless Technology Grants that include new touchscreen computers, a backpack, flashdrive, gift cards and school supplies to eligible high school students since 2015. The goal of these grants is to provide essential technology resources to high school students who may not otherwise have the means to attain them.
Cole's Hope is kicked off our 1st Annual "HOPE in a Box" Christmas Campaign in December 2015 and with tremendous support from our community, has been delivering HOPE ever since. 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. Each year the number has grown, with 165 gift boxes given each Christmas! 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.
Cole's Hope aims to give HOPE to those who need it most. See below for information about our outreach programs.
