This Christmas more than ever, less fortunate children in the Appalachian Mountains
need your help!

2013 Christmas Campaign
Blue Barrel Collections

Friday, November 22 - Monday, December 9

Most of us are blessed every day with warm homes, warm clothes, plenty of food, and employment to provide for our needs. Yet there are many people who live in rural areas that are struggling to provide even the basic necessities for their children each and every day. Most of these people want to work and provide for their families in the way many of us take for granted. However, their community is overwhelmed with extreme poverty.

This will be the 18th year for our Christmas Campaign. From our first campaign helping 150 children in 1996; we are preparing to help over 17,000 children and their families this year with food, hygiene, new clothing & new toys. Our 2013 Christmas Campaign Blue Barrel Collections begin on Friday, November 22 and continues through Monday, December 9.

The Big Blue Barrels are located at any participating Food City, Chick-fil-A, Kmart, Home Federal, Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union, CVS or Sears location.

Volunteers are also needed in the following tasks:

Office Workers              Hospitality Desk            Barrel Pick Up
Administrative Help     Sorting and Packing       Warehouse Workers
Truck Loaders               Pick Up Drivers             Various other tasks

At Christmas, we focus on New Items Only; primarily because many of the children and families we assist only get new items at this time of year.

In the right-hand column we have listed several suggested items that will greatly benefit the children in the schools we assist. Children are school aged and range from Pre-School to 8th Grade. Please call for additional needs.

Your involvement and support will be greatly appreciated whether you choose to help as a Volunteer or if you want to make a donation financially or of new items. You can send a check to Mission of Hope; P.O. Box 51824; Knoxville, TN 37950 or donate securely, online via PayPal. Mission of Hope is a fully licensed 501c3 non-profit charity so your donation is tax deductible.

If you have questions, want more information or to make donations by phone, please contact the Mission of Hope office at 865-584-7571 or by E-mail to info@missionofhope.org.
