Youth Haven’s Boxes of Hope campaign is underway, and the local shelter is asking the community to once again help youth in the region have a joyful Christmas.
Boxes of Hope are gift packages given to youth who are experiencing homelessness, or at risk of homelessness in our community.
People can purchase a box for $50. The money raised from each purchase will go to buy items that the youth need.This year that can include bus tokens, toiletries, gift cards, winter clothing, hygiene products, or books and supplies for those youth attending school.
In 2019, the Boxes of Hope campaign raised over $17,000.
Youth Haven provides critical services to approximately 400 youth every year. It is Simcoe County’s only youth shelter.
