VIEW THE SHOPPING FOR YOUR CHILD VIDEO


The items listed come from people who work with motel families and understand their needs, but these are only suggestions. Use your discretion — and your imagination — to make this meaningful to the little boy or girl.

Unless otherwise noted, this Bag of Hope will be given to a child in elementary school, so stay away from anything aggressive in nature, difficult games, unhealthy snacks, medication, things that break easily, etc.  (For quality control purposes, we reserve the right to add to, or remove items from bags.)  All items should be new; estimated cost is $95. If there’s too much to fit, place everything in a Ziploc Big Bag® before returning.
