Sometimes it is easy to take things such as a new stick of deodorant, a fresh toothbrush, or a new tube of Chapstick for granted; sometimes we even get annoyed when we have to remember to pick these things up on a trip to the store. They're necessities, but we are so used to having them on hand that some of us easily forget to pick them up when we need them. And some of us are lucky enough to say, "Oh well, I'll pick it up tomorrow." These things can easily become an afterthought. But that is not the case for many families.



The Ella Foundation gave Opportunities for Hope an extremely large donation of necessities such as deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, Chapstick, shampoo, conditioner, and many other necessities. These donations are so helpful to the guests in our programs, every necessity donated goes to people who truly need this support from our kind donors.


We at Opportunities for Hope are so incredibly grateful for the kindness and generosity that the Ella Foundation has shown to our guests with their donation. Donations like these have such a positive and impactful effect on our guests and you can see the excitement on their faces when they receive donations.
