Welcome to the July 2018 edition of Hope House's Community Education E-bulletin!
Denim Day Funds Raised
Approximately 50 agencies, businesses, schools, and churches in our five county service area participated in Denim Day this April by wearing jeans in support of survivors. Some groups choose to collect donations for Hope House in addition to their awareness efforts. Funds raised this year totalled over $3,000. Thank you for your support!

Special Note about Travel-Size Items: We encourage those looking to donate travel-size items to donate them to the Backpack Project. The Backpack Project strives to provide Baraboo School District students who are financially challenged to enter the school doors on the first day ‘just like everyone else’ and to show these children the community supports and encourages them to learn and do their best.
