FESTIVAL OF HOPE 2021
Here at New Hope, we not only take care of our own, but we also use the time, talents, and resources entrusted to us to bring Jesus to our city and around the world.
Our Pathfinder scouting group will drop off hundreds of grocery lists and bags in the neighborhoods surrounding our church. We’d invite you to furnish 80 turkeys and the groceries to go with them. Then, we’d bag, pack and deliver the goods to four community partners that do a great job in serving our communities.
We partner with Grassroots, Hopeworks, LARS, and Sarah’s House to support kids and families in need in our community. Because of COVID-19, all four organizations asked for grocery-store gift cards (Giant, Safeway, Target, and Walmart). This will allow them to have a better distribution process to meet people’s needs. LARS is asking for 80 turkeys and food for 110 families (see shopping list here).
Here’s how you can help:
- Drop off gift cards at New Hope or give online here to help us raise the $4,000 needed to meet our goal of 110 $25 cards and 25 $50 cards.
- Donate groceries (you can drop them off at New Hope between Nov. 16 and Nov. 20. Call 301.854.1866 to let us know you’re dropping them off).
- Donate a turkey (drop them off at New Hope on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 9am-noon).
- Transport groceries to LARS in Laurel on Saturday, Nov. 20.
- Pray God’s blessing on those receiving the food.
