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!

Annual  Community  Events:

Angel Tree Camping (June-August)

When Mom or Dad are in prison, the innocent children are left behind to pick up the pieces.  Many don't get the opportunity to attend a summer camp or have a week long family vacation, therefore we sponsor children of prisoner's for a week long Christian Retreat at Camp Mundo Vista, Camp Caraway, Camp Agape, and Camp Bethel during the summer months.  Sponsorship for a child is $40 and the ministry raises the rest.  Incarcerated parent must put in for the child through Prison Fellowship or the Department of Corrections. 

Back-2-School (August)

Every August God provides through Building Hope Ministries countless free backpacks bursting with school supplies (and a bible)  to children who can’t afford them. God blesses these children  to begin the new school year prepared, with dignity to return to school  and ready to succeed.  We except backpacks full of supplies the entire year. 

  Thanksgiving Turkey Drive (November)

Many families can’t afford a turkey & some trimmings, but with God all things are possible. Each year through our ministry we provide food baskets of frozen turkeys & nonperishable food items.

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!

Angel Tree Deliveries will run from December 15 thru December 22, 2014.  Prison Team will contact families and share a personal presentation of the gospel with each one- after all, we want to introduce them to the greatest gift of all...Jesus Christ!
