We have had the pleasure of supporting many different organizations throughout the years. Knowing that we can make a difference in people's lives one story at a time is why we do what we do.
The McCoy family would like to thank "Charities of Hope" for donating the wheel chair, the walker, the huge rocking chair and the other household items needed to provide a more comfortable environment for a gentleman that is in constant pain and need help getting from one place to another. Since getting the wheel chair, Freddie has been able to go to several cookouts, visit friends and relatives and be a bit more independent. Thank you very much.
He also can take himself to the bathroom with the help of the walker you gave him...The rocking chair allows him to stand up without assistance...woooooow...its a blessing. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks.
As promised, we will return the wheel chair when his chair is authorized...

Hartford Little League
On behalf of Mayor Mike’s Little League here in Hartford, I want to thank you and everyone from Charities Of Hope for you fabulous donation of baseball equipment to our league. Many of our kids are in need of a glove or cleats because they do not have the means to purchase it. So by providing this equipment to these kids we can keep them on the field and in the game so they will continue to learn and grow in the sport of baseball. These are the types of partnerships that make our kids stronger and will allow them to grow and nurture through sports and continue to grow in a healthy life style.
Thanks again so much for this donation,
Craig Mergins | Coach AAA

The first time I got yarn from COH was in March 2015. There were 6 black contractor garbage bags full of yarn and it was overwhelming, but amazing. I contacted all the knitters I knew and researched groups that knit for charity online. I made a deal with people, take some yarn make something for yourself if you want but take more yarn and make an item for donation for someone in need. Every couple months we drop off knitted items at COH to be donated to people in need. I pick up yarn that has been donated to COH and distribute it to knitters who make more items. Someone recently donated a whole bag of hand-knitted children's and infant's scarves to COH.
On behalf of the families we serve, staff, volunteers, and board directors, it is my pleasure to thank you for your donations of hats, boots, scarfs, gloves, blankets, a sweater, diapers, toys, accessories, and wash cloths. Each gift matters and directly helps the women and their children while in shelter or transitioning to a new and safer home for themselves. It really makes a difference in our ability to successfully support those facing violence in their home.
