Events

Host an Event for Streetreach:  
Are you hosting an event in which you'd like to donate part of your ticket sales? Are you a restaurant or retail store looking to contribute a portion of your proceeds? Would you like to collect cash donations to help the homeless, hungry and hurting? Are you a restaurant that would like to donate prepared food for an outreach?   Imagine how you, your church, school, social club or company can start something small, or start something large; either way, we need your help!

November  2014:

Turkey Drive 2014- WOW!  What a success! 

We want to give a big shout of praise to all the individuals that helped us to provide 34 Thanksgiving Baskets and 10 hams to needy families across the county. 

 It is you that puts the "THANKS" in Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving let those of us who have much and those who have little gather at the welcome table of the Lord. At this blessed feast, may rich and poor alike remember that we are called to serve one another and to walk together in God’s gracious world. With thankful hearts we praise our God who like a loving parent denies us no good thing.

Today and every day, it pleases God for us to sit as brothers and sisters as we share the bounty of the earth and the grace God has placed in each blessed soul. For this we all give thanks and praise to our loving and gracious God.

ANGEL  TREE  CHRISTMAS:      Every year we organize a festive holiday celebration for families of inmates, children that are homeless  or at-risk of homelessness, providing a much-needed respite from the daily challenges of poverty in some of our counties most disadvantaged neighborhood
Pulling off a party of this size is no small feat. It takes the hard work and dedication of many volunteers, sponsors, and donors to make the magic happen. You can get involved by:
  • Coordinating a Toy Drive in your office, neighborhood, or place of worship. We need hundreds of new, unwrapped new toys for children ages infant to 17. We'll wrap them and deliver them!
  • Becoming a sponsor. Are you a business who would like to sponsor the holiday party with either an outright monetary donation or an appropriate gift in kind? 
  • Gift Cards of any amount are always needed for the poor children to purchase needed shoes and clothing items for school.
  • Dropping off a NEW bicycle for a needy kid at Building Hope Ministries, 1009 Hewett Rd., Supply.
Always need coloring books & crayons, kids mittens, candy bags, and stuffed stockings!

Here is a list of volunteer opportunities:
  • Desserts are needed (cookies, brownies, cupcakes,etc...)
  • Finger sandwiches (any kind), Chips & dip, capri's, juice boxes or sodas
  • Building Hope Ministries will provide all the decorations & Paper products
