Helen’s Hope Chest provides for foster and kinship care youth year-round. However, there are specific programs hosted during the year to help kids prepare for school, and to help them feel happy and loved during the holidays. HHC’s back-to-school backpack drive is typically held in the summer, before school starts in August. You can contribute to help kids feel prepared with backpacks, notebooks, and other school essentials. Jakelle’s Christmas Box is HHC’s premiere holiday event, providing gifts for youth and children in the Christmas season. Learn more about Jakelle’s Christmas Box and how you can help.
