A Better Year Starts Here

What is a Brown Bag of Hope?

Together, we can equip a kid headed back to school next month. For just $10, you can purchase a Brown Bag of Hope containing school supplies or toiletries for those in need. Our stores then redistribute the bags to local schools, nonprofits, and others within your community.
