In 2018, the League adopted the Hope Totes Project in conjunction with the Optimist Club of St. Joseph. This project provides plastic storage totes to local children when staying at/vacating local shelters to hold their personal items in lieu of using a standard trash bag. Hope Totes is the New Member project in raising funds for the purchase of totes throughout the League year.

If you would like to donate to Hope Totes you can send any amount to our P.O. BOX 8191 St. Joseph, MO 64508 or make a purchase on https://www.myregistry.com/giftlist/hopetotes. For more information or how to support this initiative, please email membership@juniorleaguesj.com.
