The HopeBox is a creative way for volunteers to contribute their time at their own convenience. 

Simply order a HopeBox, enjoy the activity selected, and send the finished products back to us.

All items will be donated back to the individuals and families Catholic Charities serves. Each activity provides supplies and instructions for creating great gifts.  

This is an opportunity for all volunteers including:

  • Families – it's great for bonding and teaching children about volunteering.

  • Friends – for when you want to give back from home while creating happy memories with friends.

  • Co-workers – it's also an excellent opportunity for team building.
