Hope Children’s Home is an incredible organization dedicated to bettering the lives of children through providing a safe place to call home, family, food and education. Improving the lives of children is important to us and we wanted to help support the mission of this incredible organization by donating heaps and heaps of berries! Healthy and fresh food is what it is all about!
“Founded in 1968, Hope Children’s Home has rescued nearly 5,000 children between the ages of infant to 18 years of age. The type of children we care for are not juvenile delinquents, but rather children that, through no fault of their own, find themselves in a situation of needed rescue. Some of the children have simply come out of a situation where a parent just needed help. Our home is located in northwest Tampa, Florida on 55 beautifully wooded acres of land. Our campus consist of dormitories for the boys and girls that can house a total of 80 children as well as beautiful 4,000 sq. ft. cottages that care for our younger children and allowing siblings to live together. The children live in a family atmosphere with house parents who are with them twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to give guidance and encouragement.”
The Hope Children’s home also has a school that provides education from nursery age through to 12th grade with a well rounded sports program as well. Over 90% of students go on to college.
Hope the kids loved our berries!
