Recycling Hope

Buy It. Give It. Tell It.

Recycling Hope is first and foremost an outreach initiative and secondarily a fundraiser. All proceeds from the engraved jewelry and key fobs will go to the youth, but we ask that everyone who buys one prayerfully gives it away. Then share the story of the hope you gave on our website.
