Monthly Box of HOPE

Volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of the youth served by Project Hope Alliance. Since we cannot volunteer together in person for a while, we are so excited to provide you and your whole family with monthly projects you can do at home #forthekids.

As a volunteer with Project Hope Alliance, you are joining our Visible Army. You are bringing visibility, awareness, and HOPE to over 30,000 youth experiencing homeless across Orange County. 

Welcome to PHA’s Visible Army

This Month’s Box of HOPE is….

Valentine’s Day Friendship Boxes!

Give the gift of Friendship #forthekids 

Decorate and fill a box of gifts for our kids and Valentine’s Day cards to share with their friends! For our youth, the simple act of giving a gift to a friend is not always financially possible. These boxes will provide a sense of belonging and self-confidence that all our kids deserve.

These boxes will be given to boys and girls in elementary school.

How to make a Box of Friendship:

You can either stop by our office to pick up a box to decorate. If you are stopping by, please confirm a pickup time by emailing Vanessa at

Hours for pickup are Monday – Friday from 10 am to 4 pm

1954 Placentia Ave, Suite 202, Costa Mesa, CA 92567.

Or use your own box, bucket, bag, anything! Decorate it and then fill it with:

  • A box of blank Valentine’s Day cards or stationary
  • Candy
  • Snacks
  • Stuffed animals
  • Small toys
  • Art supplies
  • Hygiene items
  • Gift cards to Target, Amazon, etc.. (please include gift cards in separate envelope clearly labeled with their amounts.)
  • Anything else you would like to add that is kid-friendly.
