New Families, New School Year…

If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve already heard that we’ve got some new faces here at Hope Gardens. Two families joined us in July and another is coming in this month!

For our new families especially—but really for any family—the beginning of the school year can be stressful, with new schedules, teachers, bus routes, and classmates to figure out.

One more source of stress for our families is budgeting for the expenses a new school year brings, like new clothes, shoes, and specialty school supplies for older children (scientific/graphing calculators, headphones, and so on).

So we’re asking for your help. We’re collecting Walmart and Target gift cards for our families to cover these costs; cards can be mailed to us at 31 S. Spring Garden Street, Ambler, PA 19002, or dropped off during business hours.

Thanks for helping us ensure that the children in our housing programs—28 kids in all!—have what they need to thrive this school year.
