We are excited to announce that we are collecting Hope Boxes and supplies for our 2023 mission trip to the Appalachian Mountains. Our prayer is that we will be able to present a Hope Box and share the love and hope of Jesus Christ with at least 22,000 children at over 60 public schools.
Plastic shoe boxes travel better and the kids can reuse them over and over for things at school and at home. We prefer the Sterilite plastic shoe boxes, we have noticed that the Dollar Tree shoe boxes are breaking in transport.
Our age groups are categorized by:
Fill the plastic shoe box with school supplies, hygiene items, and toys that are appropriate for the age group. Please see the lists below of what to include and not to include. There is also an idea list that you can print at the bottom of this page!
We ask that each box contain:
Please do NOT include: (reasons for each can be found below!)
The printable labels can be found at the bottom of this page. They can be printed on regular paper and taped to the top of the box.
You can pray over the child that will be receiving the box as well as the missionary delivering the box.
You can drop off your Hope Box at any of the locations in the link below!
If you are making Hope Boxes for a school or more than 15 Hope Boxes, it is VERY helpful to us to have them packaged and labeled in LARGE LOWES moving boxes. This is not mandatory, but would be great!
We are looking for churches, organizations, small groups, or individuals to commit to
Hope for Appalachia Virginia Inc and adopt a Kentucky school to make Hope Boxes for the Spring 2023 Trip. To learn more about how to Adopt a School, you can click on the link below!
