‘Tis the season for being thankful and for giving! November is filled with lovely days to show generosity to local organizations and communities, such as Give to the Max Day on November 16th and Giving Tuesday on November 28th. At Record-A-Hit, we take pride in our community and we want to showcase a local nonprofit organization to start the giving season off!
HOPE Ornaments gathers, packages, and delivers holiday ornaments to patients spending their holiday season in the hospital and assisted living centers since 2007. Thousands of children and adults spend their holidays in the hospital battling life threatening illnesses such as Cancer, Lupus, Epilepsy, Alzheimer’s and Heart Disease.
There are various ways to donate:
ORNAMENTS: Store bought ornaments that the HOPE Ornaments team will deliver to patients spending their holiday season in the hospital. Each patient will get to choose and keep an ornament. Whether it is one ornament or several, every ornament will bring joy to a patient in need. Due to infection control of the patients, HOPE Ornaments can only donate newly purchased ornaments. Some put out a collection box at work, church or social groups. Ornaments can be sent to:
562 2nd Street
Grayslake, IL 60030
MONETARY DONATIONS: Will be used to purchase ornaments and the supplies needed for the gift wrapping of the ornaments. You can donate directly on GoFundMe – HOPE Ornaments.
FAMILY & FRIENDS: Please reach out to family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. Projects for schools and churches are welcomed, please contact HOPE Ornaments for details or with any questions.
