Greetings Dear MOH Friends from The HOPE. It’s Now GAME TIME!
It’s an amazing time of bustling excitement and energy each day right now at The HOPE. It’s now time for one of the most wonderful and amazing annual events for our humble ministry. Our official Mission of Hope Christmas Collection Program begins tomorrow, Friday, November 22nd. And it will continue thru Monday, December 9th with donations welcomed after that as well. When I say “This Year…More Than Ever…We Truly Need Your Help”…..I mean it from our Hearts.
We will be serving over 17,500 children & family members at 27 elementary schools in rural areas. That means we will need LOTS & LOTS of NEW toys & clothes, hygiene items, non-perishable food. With Thanksgiving coming later it also means that we have one less week to pack out our schools. So here’s where we need your help IMMENDIATELY. Please, please, please try to bring your MOH collections to our Blue Barrels as soon as you can. And if you are having or plan to have your own MOH Christmas Collection effort at your church, company, civic group, local school, etc., we would be immensely grateful and appreciative for you to get those items to the MOH as soon as you can as well.
We actually begin tonight with a powerful story on WBIR-TV that affirms why “We Still Need To Go”. And tomorrow @ 6 AM we will be live with WBIR-TV and WRJZ-Radio at the Chick-fil-A / Clinton Highway. And then tomorrow afternoon we will be live at the first Pinnacle @ Turkey Creek Christmas Tree Lighting and Festival Event with WBIR-TV and Live @ Five along with WOKI-Radio and The Phil Williams Show. You can also see our first MOH Christmas Collection Program advertisement in the Knoxville News Sentinel.
Please share this message and go to our web-site at missionofhope.org for additional information and to make financial donations. And perhaps most important of all, may I humbly appeal for your prayers and for God’s harvest for He indeed will always be our Greatest Source of Hope.
Thanks for your friendship & support and for all you do to help us extend The HOPE.
Emmette Thompson, Executive Director – Mission of Hope
