The Hope Center, one of our outreach ministry partners, has a mission “to provide asset-based opportunities for sustainable growth where children, youth, and families can have hope and flourish on Kansas City’s East-side.”
Each year at Christmas, The Hope Center hosts a Christmas party for their neighborhood. They pass out toys for the neighborhood kids and gift cards to the parents. The gift cards are used to purchase gifts for the kids, food for table, and help with other expenses throughout the holiday season and beyond.
You have a chance to make an impact in the lives of these families through our outreach partner by donating toys and/or gift cards. Gather your family, your community group, or your neighbors and consider how you might be involved.
Donations can be as small as $10 (a great way for kids and students to be involved at a level they can afford). While there is no upper limit to how much you can contribute, $100 is the largest value desired for any one gift card while $60 is the largest value desired for any one toy.
We will be promoting this project from November 22 through December 13. If you would like to participate, you can DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS HERE for toys or gift card collections here. You can drop off gifts on Sunday morning in the church lobby or during the week at our church office collection box.
