H.O.P.E. Boxes

The Connecticut chapter of JHF contributed to one of the foundation’s projects, H.O.P.E. Boxes. These are shoe boxes packed with a prepared meal as well as some basic toiletries, and are sent to the needy. Each member of the CT JAB made a H.O.P.E. box to give to homeless teens in New Haven.

H.O.P.E. stands for “Having Only Positive Expectations” and I believe that message should be heard by all people, especially those in need. With positive expectations and a positive attitude, great things can happen. Instilling hope amongst those in distress can lead to a positive future for them, especially teens. Even though one meal may not last long, that meal shows that people are out there who care about them and are rooting for them to make it out okay, and that can be a truly motivational thing.
