Here’s a great opportunity for one all-volunteer organization to help another.
Hope to Home serves people who are working their way out of poverty, domestic violence situations, and homelessness by providing basic furnishings for free as they move into a home.
You can help by providing encouraging messages of support for recipients as they have a fresh start. Cards are included with their move-in kits. (This may be a great opportunity to get your kids involved in drawing pictures of home on blank cards for you to write messages!)

I live near Towne Centre in Mount Pleasant. If you prefer to drop off, please get in touch for an address.
Group events are on hold at the moment because well…. another new covid variant. We do have a card request though from East Cooper Meals on Wheels for their meal recipients.
Any kind of positive/inspirational messages are appreciated in your handmade or store bought cards. I also think everyone can appreciate clean humor. Feel free to sign your names if you’re comfortable with that.

A group of us met on May 27th to work on cards. We completed about 25 during our time together. I confess I did better with creating than I did with writing since I was chatting with the other attendees! (I’ll need to write my notes at home. )
Now that I know there’s enough interest – both working as a group and individually – I’m opening up the form to request cards. If you’re interested in creating cards, please fill out this form.
Several people have offered to help financially with this project. While I really appreciate the offer, I won’t take anything at this time. If I do down the road, I want to be very transparent. (I’ll start tracking any costs and we can figure that out later for those who are interested in contributing.)
Please note that any cards you create and send from home are a HUGE contribution! By being part of this, you are already graciously giving your time by creating cards and your finances by buying stamps when you send cards from your home.
