Make the holidays brighter for a foster child and see your contribution increased.
Discount Tire’s Bruce T. Halle Family Foundation has offered a “challenge” grant through its Regional Philanthropy Program, Driven to Care, which provides grants to dozens of charitable organizations across the country. The grant coincides with the launch of Helen’s Hope Chest’s holiday gift drive, which aims to ensure every foster child in the south East Valley receives gifts during the holiday season. The free clothing, school supply, book and toy “store” for local foster children is operated by Mesa United Way.
To donate, go to www.mesaunitedway.org and click the “donate online” button. Checks can be mailed to Helen’s Hope Chest, 415 N. Pasadena, Mesa, AZ 85201. Gifts, as well as of new or gently used clothing, can be dropped off at Helen’s Hope Chest 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Saturday.
