A house is just a building until you bring a family into it… then you have a home.

Recently we had the opportunity to help Hope Pkgs. This wonderful organization provides first night necessities to children entering the foster care program.

Prior to the 2016 Lakeshore – Parade of Homes beginning, a private preview event was held to invited guests who toured and generously brought along donations. These items will enable Hope Pkgs. to continue to have the ability to prepare backpacks for new foster children of all ages.


We couldn’t agree more, a new backpack full of useful comfort items can help with sadness, confusion, and desperation in these uncomfortable situations. Thank you to our new homeowners and all who came to the event, your donations overflowed the collection area much to our delight!
