Organize A Drive - 

Loisann's Hope House has been blessed with the support from our community. Businesses, churches, and individuals have organized different types of drives to collect goods for our residents. They have consisted of food, clothing, cleaning supplies, paper products, summer camp items, and back-to-school items for the children. If this is something you or your organization is interested in doing, please call first to see what our current needs are. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!
