House of Hope Update

It’s Fall at the House of Hope! Here’s what’s happening: Our numbers are ever increasing. Last Friday we had 118 clients. We need more volunteers on Fridays. We are well-staffed on Wednesdays at this time. We can always use extra volunteers on any day the schools are out because we have larger numbers on those days. We also need more volunteers to cook food. We serve at least 250 meals a week. There are many ways you can help even if you aren’t available on Wednesdays or Fridays when we’re open! THANK YOU to the Pocius Lifebuilder for hosting our “Pack the Pantry” day. A BIG thank you to all of you who came by and dropped off food and clothing! It was much needed. Maybe another Lifebuilder would like to do this quarterly, also.

We are now collecting new, wrapped toys for our House of Hope Christmas party. This was such a success last year! Bring your new, wrapped toys to church on Sunday mornings with the age and gender marked on the outside (Example:Girl 3-5) or bring them directly to the House of Hope at 505 E Emma.

We received a grant from the Harp’s Golf Tournament in the amount of $5,000.00. We are in the process of applying for more grants for our daily operation expenses. Be sure to listen to KLRC 101.1 for the month of October. We are their “Non-Profit Organization of the Month”. An interview will be played several times a day all month to raise awareness of who we are and what we do. We are also highlighted for the month on the “KLRC CARES” webpage. We are looking for individuals, churches, and businesses to partner with us to make a difference in Northwest Arkansas! Contact us through the website or by calling the church office for ways you or your company can help!

One way you can help now is to go to and sign up for the contest. The winners get $50,000 for their community to help end hunger.
