Thanksgiving & Christmas Food Bags and Christmas Toy Drive
Providing for a family’s basic needs is the primary goal of the House of Hope Rescue Mission. We do our best to provide meals, access to food, clothing and hygiene items. The holidays can add even more stress to families in need.
Thanksgiving at House of Hope
This November, we will host our annual Thanksgiving Meal on Friday November 16th. We serve our clients a full Thanksgiving meal and send them home with an extra bag of groceries full of the Thanksgiving essentials.
Donations Needed: For these bags we are looking for donations of: stuffing, canned fruits, canned meat/protein, dried beans, rice, canned vegetables, boxed cake mixes or pie filling. We also include a 2-3 lb turkey or chicken breast provided by Cargill.
Christmas at House of Hope
On Friday, December 14th, we will host our annual House of Hope Client Christmas Party. We serve a full Christmas meal; hand out extra gloves, hats, blankets and coats; distribute an extra bag of groceries; and give 1 new wrapped toy for every child in each client’s family.
Toy Drive: We are requesting new wrapped toys/gifts for kids ages 0 – 18. While we do need gifts for all ages, our largest need is for items for kids ages 7-18.
Food Bags: For the food bags we are looking for donations of: stuffing, canned fruits, canned meat/protein, canned soups, dried beans, rice, pasta & sauces, canned vegetables, boxed cake mixes or pie filling.
