What is a Hope Tote?

HOPE TOTE is Union Gospel Mission’s Easter campaign that provides an opportunity for you and/or caring groups like yours to give real help to struggling homeless men, women, and children in the Portland area. These items will be passed out at UGM during our Easter meal that we serve. Hope Totes are purple plastic bags that are filled with inexpensive travel sized items like soap, shampoo, toothpaste and warm, clean socks. These basic hygiene items can make a big difference in the way homeless people live and feel about themselves.

A HOPE TOTE hygiene drive is a great project for your church, school or workplace!
