One Hope United | Holiday Gift Giving Campaign

Le Thrift Consignment Boutique is honored to partner with One Hope United on many of our fashion events, with a percentage of our sales donated to this special charity.

One Hope United is a private, nonprofit human resource organization dedicated to protecting children and strengthening families.  Founded as Chicago Baptist Orphanage in 1895 and Hudelson Baptist Children's Home in 1903, today, they are a federation of agencies that spans multiple states.  With principal offices in Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri and Florida, they serve nearly 15,000 children and families each year.

About One Hope United's Northern Region

For most of the children and families they serve, the holiday season can be a time of worry and stress, rather than joy, as they struggle to make ends meet.  One Hope United conducts an annual Holiday Giving Campaign to provide gifts for children and young adults in need.  Each child or young adult completes a wish list.  This gives you, the sponsor, an opportunity to make a personal difference in the life of a child.  It is always wonderful to read the thank you notes from these children and their parents. 

"You helped me make my children's wishes come true."
(Patricia, child's mother)
"Since I lost my job, it's been difficult.  But you put a smile on my son's face!"
(David, child's father)
"It was great to be asked for my holiday wish list,
it really means a lot to know someone cares."
(Eddie, teenager)

Help a child or young adult's wish come true and make the holidays a little brighter by sponsoring an individual or group for the holidays.
