General Information

What is Gift of Hope?

This year's Gift of Hope Program will be on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023. This program is an opportunity for registered and certified clients to receive much-needed personal household items like jackets, blankets, pillows, microwaves, vacuums, toys, and gifts for children that they request.  Living in poverty is bad in itself, but the holidays are especially hard for these community members as they are reminded of all the necessities and gifts for their families that they are unable to afford. The Gift of Hope Program provides hope and needed items for these families and individuals.
