One Hope United's Lake Villa Campus in Illinois Holds 15th Annual Garage Giveaway for Clients

In July, One Hope United held its 15th Annual Garage Giveaway. All OHU clients were invited to come and “shop” for free at the Lake Villa campus. Items at the event included toys, books, baby items, linens, bedding, household items, children’s clothing and shoes. More than 80 people attended the giveaway, choosing items that they needed.

“One of the moms shopping at the event asked if she could donate items to OHU that her children have outgrown,” said Marilee LaMattina, development associate for OHU. “She was so thankful that our agency made this available to her family and she wants to help other families in return.”

The event was successful, so much so that by the end of the day, nearly all the items were gone!
