HOPE Packs are packs of school supplies provided to students to give them the tools they need to have a productive and successful school year. These packs include pencils, folders, notebooks, glue, markers, erasers, scissors, and more! They are carefully assembled by Elim’s adults and distributed to schools and ministries in the Chicagoland area.
By supporting HOPE Packs, you are supporting two individuals: Your partnership blesses an Elim adult with meaningful work AND provides essential school supplies to a child not far from your own community. You make a life-long impact on both of their lives.
It is easy to get involved and give HOPE today! No matter if you are a group or individual, your partnership will go a long way in supporting the HOPE Packs mission. You can get involved by:
