Gifts of Hope

Give a Gift That Means Something.

Knowing you have done something to better the life of another human is truly one of the greatest feelings we can have.

You can give that gift to yourself – or to someone you love.  Holy Cross Services’ Gifts of Hope are gifts that give back…

…To Michigan.

…To Your Community.

…To People Who Truly Need It.

Perfect for any occasion, especially for loved ones far away or who do not need another thing, our gifts come with a printable certificate explaining how the gift has helped someone in Michigan; a child in foster care, someone battling addiction, facing homelessness, or recovering from trauma.

A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.

    Gift of Acceptance

    Clothing for a Child (shirt, sweater, underwear, socks, pants, shoes)   Many times children arrive at Holy Cross Services with only the clothes on their backs, and this is all the clothing they have.
