Greetings, Dear Mission Of Hope Friends;

WOW!  Where did January Go!!  And what happened to WINTER?!?!?!

Oh well…It hasn’t changed the fact that we are still staying busy here at the Mission Of Hope.  And here is some of the latest NEWS and HAPPENINGS at The Hope.

DAY TO DAY VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

We are still being blessed with donations of gently used clothing & furniture items.  We welcome volunteers to go and help with pickups and then deliveries of these wonderful items for our ministry. We also welcome front office volunteers to assist Shirley & Diane with various office tasks. For more info please contact the MOH Office (865-584-7571) or by e-mail (info@missionofhope.org).

GOOD CONDITIONED USED FURNITURE DONATIONS NEEDED @ MOH

As we strive to serve the various Mountain Ministry Centers and Schools we assist, we continually receive humble and many times quite sad and urgent appeals for good used conditioned furniture. Bedroom and kitchen and casual/den type furniture is needed now at the MOH.  Please give us a call if you have any.

CANNED & NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS NEEDED @ MOH

We always welcome non-perishable food donations at the MOH.  And the truth is we continually get requests for them.  We try to send food items out with every Mission Of Hope Truck Delivery so that the Ministry Centers we serve can have it for their Food Pantry’s and thus be able to distribute it in their area.

Here’s a thought…How about having a “Soup for the Hope Collection Event” at your company, church, Sunday School, civic group, neighborhood association, or other and just focus on collecting Soup and Peanut Butter and Crackers.  You might even have a “Soup Dinner Fellowship” (which would be FUN during the Winter) and make the price of admission some Food Donations for The Hope.  We would be THRILLED to even loan you a couple of Mission Of Hope – Big Blue Collection Barrels; for your Collection Event.

YEAR END DONATIONS RECEIPTS & THANK YOU LETTERS UPDATE

We truly work hard here at the Mission Of Hope to always try and say THANK YOU. And yet we know that those two words will never be enough…For how you deem us worthy of your support. A special and hearty THANK YOU to Shirley Plant & Diane Webster and all of their Volunteer Hero’s for completing that task in January. Please know how grateful we are for all of the Financial & Resource Donations we receive at the MOH.

EXCITING EVENTS AHEAD IN 2012!!!!!

Please stay tuned to our Mission Of Hope Updates & E-mails about exciting upcoming Events. You can also keep in touch with us by visiting our web site at: www.missionofhope.org. Help us extend True Hope…to those who are in many cases hopeless.
