Mission of Hope Christmas Program & Blue Barrel Collection in Knoxville & Lexington

Christmas Campaign & Blue Barrel Collections

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

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.

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

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.
