City Sponsors Holiday Food and Toy Drives
Posted on 11/10/2021
New Hope city employees are sponsoring food and toy drives to help local families in need this holiday season. Unopened, nonperishable food items or monetary donations will be accepted at the food drive. Please make sure that donated food items are not beyond their “use by” date. Donations may be dropped off at New Hope City Hall Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Non-perishable food items are collected all year long, but items collected by Dec. 16 will be delivered to NEAR (North Suburban Emergency Response) for distribution to local families before the holidays.

New, unwrapped toys for children of all ages, as well as donations by cash, check and gift card; will be accepted for the holiday toy drive sponsored by the New Hope Police Department. Items may be dropped off through Dec. 16 in the police department lobby. Lobby hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donated items will be delivered to NEAR, PRISM and Toys for Tots.

Drive-up drop off for both drives is available on Thursday, Dec. 16 from 5 to 7 p.m. at New Hope City Hall.
