Hope Tote Campaign


This Easter season, get together with your neighbors, family, friends, church, co-workers, school, or civic organizations to fill Hope Totes for thousands of people in need in Northeast Ohio. These bags can make a tremendous difference to people who may not have the resources to purchase personal care items regularly for themselves and their families. Hope Totes are also a great way of spreading the love of Jesus to hurting and homeless adults and children.

You may request Hope Tote bags to fill and receive additional information by calling Lori Morgan at Haven of Rest at 330-535-1563.
