Christy's Legacy of Hope wrote -
Christy's Legacy of Hope is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity that raises funds for orphaned children throughout the world in honor of the late Christy DePriest Wright who died of cancer in 2010 at 24 years old. She was passionate about children in China that had been abandoned and left in orphanages. We have decided to dedicate our efforts to not only these children but also children in other parts of the world. We have been fortunate to work with the largest China adopting agency in the United States, CCAI as well as New Hope Initatiave to fulfill the wish lists of orphanages to benefit the children.
In 2016 Christy's Legacy of Hope was able to make over 200 backpacks for children going into foster care through the Western Wayne area of DHHS. The bags are filled with things to help a child through the transition of going to a new home. items include a complete outfit, pajamas, age appropriate toiletries and a stuffed animal.
