One Time Events

Hope House hosts special events such as neighborhood clean-ups, our annual street fair, and holiday gift and food drives throughout the year. We need hardworking volunteers at these events to sort school supplies or gifts, rake leaves or pick up trash, and just lend a helping hand wherever it may be needed. If you are looking for an opportunity with a large group, please ask us what events we currently have in store!
