This October 13th, H.OP.E. is having a Saturday Funday picnic at Shelby Farms from 9:00 am to 5 p.m. Since it is a potluck, we are asking that everyone who attends please bring a dish as well their families and children! We will have games, food, and entertainment! All are welcome but we are particularly asking those who experience homelessness, their families, and those who serve people experiencing homelessness (case workers, therapists, etc.) please attend! We hope that this will great time for everyone to get to know each other without all the red tape and appointments and just relax. We are so glad to have our sponsors, Medtronic, Idlewild Presbyterian Church, St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen, and many more! If you would like to donate money or a food item, please contact Tamara Hendrix at 901-254-5964.
It’s getting close! Project Homeless Connect 2018 is right around the corner, and HOPE wants YOU… to volunteer at this day-long service provider fair, where people experiencing homelessness can access a host of services and resources under one roof. These services often include housing assessments, minor medical clinics, job resources, haircuts, and more! It is on October 11, starting at 8AM and will be held at the Cook Convention Center. Volunteer registration is now open, and you can choose from a list of duties and time-slots that best meet your availability and specific interest! For more info, and to register, just go to www.cafth.org. Also when you receive a confirmation about your shift, you will get an email to sign up for trainings as well.
For more information about how you can help donate or support HOPE or those who do the work to combat homelessness, or would like to put on a HOPE shirt and volunteer, contact Tamara Hendrix, (901)725.4990 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feed the Movement!
H.O.P.E. would like to thank Marcos Pizza for providing pizzas for the H.O.P.E meetings on the 1st Wednesday of the month! H.O.P.E is a supportive advocacy group for people with the experiences of homelessness. For many groups and organizations offering free food at meetings is a plus for their attendees, but for H.O.P.E. it is a necessity, due to the fact that most often the meal offered at H.O.P.E. meetings may be the only meal they will have that day. Also we would like to thank another one of our new sponsors, Hattie B’s! Please give these businesses your service and tell them H.O.P.E. sent you!
How can you help? You can help by donating prepared foods on Wednesdays to our meeting that afternoon. Don’t have time to cook or buy prepared foods and bring them to our meeting space? We also accept monetary donations towards this cause. Neither of those options seem feasible for you presently? We are also looking for restaurants willing to donate food to our meetings. As always, all forms of donations are completely tax deductible.
If you would like to discuss how you can offer support to HOPE please call Tamara @ 901-254-5964 or email email@example.com.
