UPDATE - Christmas “BOXES OF HOPE” Recap
Our GOAL for Hope Projects is to raise $30,000.00 this year was met!
We were able to provide not 30 but 35 families with “Boxes of Hope” filled with some many essential items – including Coats, Shoes, jammies, underwear, socks and toiletries. Also all the kids received presents as well. We provided each family with a Italian Lasagna dinner, and a fun bag with all the Christmas goodies.
ALL of the volunteers who made this possible were rock star servants and we are so thankful for all the ways people came together to help.
Now this year begins with our monthly meal delivery at the last Sunday of every month. We hope many families and people will volunteer to make this happen as well.
Your financial partnership in our Christmas Hope Project “Boxes of Hope” begins the process to LOVE + SERVE in our city again this year! There are so many people in need of extra support, and you gave to this need.
Our mission is to follow up with monthly meals and interaction with the families who received the boxes.
We are partnered with local established community organizations in our city who connect us to people who are needing this support in practical and tangible ways… and we are always wanting to be able to help when called upon.
Your contribution during this Christmas season was AMAZING for continuing to further Hope Projects as we invest into our community!
We began Hope Projects last year with our first ever Christmas “Boxes of Hope”.
We filled 150 boxes – with brand new coats, shoes and socks and other items which were needed for the winter season. We also have an ongoing diaper drive that helps for new families starting out.
Covid brought its challenges during that time but the families all received the boxes and the response was of great excitement and thankfulness.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
We want to pray for the families receiving the boxes and the meals over the next year. We want to be in prayer for the volunteers of the LOVE + SERVE teams.
Find out ways to get involved with our LOVE + SERVE teams this year 2022.
We want to keep Hope Projects running all year long. We want to continue to meet the needs of these families and more during the year ahead!
