Donation Drives

Encourage your neighborhood, church, civic group, and social organization to host a donation drive to benefit Home of Hope! Through your generous donations of gift cards, our kids can make memories and find joy in their situations. Some of the most enjoyed gift cards are for pizza, movies, bowling, and Great Clips.  Donate today!

Donation drop-offs are Monday – Friday from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Please call ahead and let us know your estimated time of arrival. We will have someone available to greet you and receive your donations. You can also order online using our Amazon wish list and donations will be shipped directly to us. 


Donate Meals

We also need volunteers to provide lunch and dinner on the weekends and occasionally during the week. Individuals drop off prepared meals from home or local restaurants.

Volunteers can pick to supply one meal a month or be on a rotating schedule with another volunteer. Contact our food services manager, Bridgette Fredrick at bfredrick@gwinnettchildrenshelter.org or 678-546-8770 to get on our schedule. Thank you!

David and I support Home of Hope because we believe in its mission. Maureen’s vision and manner under which she operates is inspiring. The ‘hand up and not out’ mentality and approach is empowering to the guests. The fact that Home of Hope is impacting two generations is more beneficial and long-lasting for our community. We are proud to be even a small part of this great program.
