Albums of Hope, a 501 (c)(3) charity organization, donates pocket-sized photo albums filled with uplifting quotes and photos to local hospitals, cancer treatment centers, support groups, and to individuals. Our mission is to the lift the spirits of others during difficult times.
Albums of Hope began as a project in 2010 when founder Laura Townsend's husband was fighting colorectal cancer. It began as a mission to feel helpful during a time when we often feel helpless. After Brad lost his battle, Albums of Hope incorporated in 2011 to continue to lift the spirits of those battling cancer. To date, Albums of Hope has donated over 4000 albums to local cancer patients and their families.
Our dedicated group of volunteers continues to assemble albums for donation. Our volunteers are fueled by the knowledge that these little albums make a big and immediate difference in the lives of those fighting the tough fight against cancer.
