Recruiting Organization: Asha Hope Amanaki

Project background:

Operation H.O.P.E (Health, Outreach, Partnership, Encouragement) was a community project for the community by the community. The idea was to reach those who were the most vulnerable during the winter months of the pandemic: those who were experiencing homelessness and those who were in nursing homes facing isolation. We wanted to make sure they know that we care about them too.

We partnered with Shelters, Nursing homes, and Non Profits to provide individuals with little bags full of goodies. At a minimum, we provided them with:

  1. Hand Sanitizer
  2. Mask
  3. A treat like a couple of mints
  4. A word of encouragement or artwork (Greeting Cards, Origami, or 3D Printed Items)
  5. A warm item (socks, scarves, beanies, mittens).


From October to February, we were able to make 5000 bags and distribute them to 64 organizations across the Portland Metro region. We worked with City officials, community members, and corporations to make this happen.


How you can help our summer efforts:

This summer, we are partnering with the Federal Lunch program to provide similar goody bags that will contain items for kids such as band-aids, pencils, erasers, and a STEM Kit.


We need your help to write positive affirmative note cards for high school kids participating in the Federal Lunch program.


You can purchase the cards from Amazon, or you can get creative and use materials or paper that you already have at home. For some samples, click here.


Remember that your message should be positive and age-appropriate for high school students. Examples include:

  1. Nothing is impossible, the word self says I'm possible
  2. Don't be discouraged, its often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock
  3. There is always light at the end of the tunnel
  4. Rise above the storm and you will find sunshine
  5. You are amazing for facing this with so much courage and strength
  6. Hold On Pandemic Ends (HOPE). Don't give up

Please refrain from including any personally identifiable information on your note of encouragement. You may sign with your initials or with your first name only.

We encourage you to make as many cards as you can. Once your cards have been created, please mail or ship them to:
