The holiday season is swiftly approaching and we wanted to do something extra special this year. This year we are offering two different holiday gift boxes, filled with some really great local products, and we're donating money for each box sold to The Hope Lodge in Grand Rapids. Nearly everyone has been affected by or has known someone affected by cancer. In this, the season of giving, we wanted to give to a worthy organization that provides comfort and support to those who really need it. Donate to a local non-profit, support locally owned businesses, and give a really great gift with our Holiday Hope Boxes!
The Hope Lodge, located at 129 Jefferson Ave SE, is a really special organization that provides lodging and transportation for cancer patients and their caregivers while they are in the Grand Rapids area receiving life saving medical treatment. The lodge has a supportive, comfortable and nurturing environment along with home-like amenities such as residential kitchens, family rooms, billiards room, library, exercise room, laundry room, and patio garden.
Hope Lodge opened in 2008 and has provided more than 27,000 nights of lodging to patients and their caregivers. In 2014 alone, they provided 5,727 free nights of lodging, as well as more than 2,500 free rides to and from cancer treatments, serving more than 400 patients and their caregivers. Residents from 71 out of the 83 counties in Michigan have been served by the Grand Rapids Hope Lodge. Because of the services offered here, cancer patients don't have to worry about where to stay and how to pay for lodging. Instead they can focus on getting well.
The Hope Lodge is run by the American Cancer Society, which is a wonderful national organization. All money we raise through the Holiday Hope Gift Box project will be going directly to the Hope Lodge right here in Grand Rapids. For more information, visit the American Cancer Society website here or the Hope Lodge page here.
We're excited to offer two different Holiday Hope Gift Boxes. The Holiday Hope Boxes are $27 each and $5 from every box sold will be donated to the Hope Lodge. The Holiday Hope Deluxe Boxes are $47 each and $7 from every box sold will be donated to the Hope Lodge. The boxes are being pre-sold now through December 10th and will be available for pick up at the Hope Lodge beginning on December 17th, or for an additional charge, we will ship or deliver them to you or the recipient. For more information about the box contents and to order online, visit our Holiday Hope Gift Box tab here. You will notice a pick up or delivery option for each box.
