Grandma’s House of Hope is a non-profit charity that aims to empower the invisible populations of Orange County. They provide basic needs and enrichment services to women, children, and families living in extreme poverty and facing seemingly insurmountable barriers including human trafficking, domestic violence, life-threatening illnesses, and severe mental health concerns.
As a chapter, we got the opportunity to make valentine’s day care packages for these women and families to make sure that they felt all the appreciation they deserve. The care packages consisted of candies, chapsticks, and caring notes to encourage each of these people.
Although we were not able to physically go to Grandma’s House of Hope, I still felt that making these goodie bags was a way to show that we cared, even from afar. People often say “it’s the little things that count” and I feel that phrase fit perfectly for this event.
