Union Gospel Mission would like to provide each guest with a "Hope Tote." What is a "Hope Tote"? It's a simple purple bag that we are asking people to fill with essential toiletries and new socks. We are planning to serve anywhere from 600 to 700 on Easter and want to give each guest a Hope Tote bag filled with needed hygiene items and socks.
If you would like a Hope Tote kit, please contact Heidi Hege at firstname.lastname@example.org or give Heidi a call 503-274-4483 ex 513.
The needed items for the Hope Tote include: new and unopened toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shaving cream, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, lip balm, brush, comb, tissues, shoelaces, lotion, disposable razors and socks.
If you fill up a Hope Tote, you may drop them off at 3 NW Third Avenue in Portland on Saturday March 27 between 10:00 am - 3:00 pm and enjoy our Hope Tote drop-off celebration with pizza and tours of the Mission.
