Greetings, Dear Mission of Hope Friends;
WOW! January has now come and gone…and where did it go?! We trust you are all staying health, warm, and Blessed!
Doing year round ministry through the various Mountain Ministry Centers we are so privileged to serve; we have learned that their Food Pantry supplies are at a critical low. Especially during the winter months. We would like to “throw an idea” out to our dear and dedicated Mission of Hope Friends for you to consider.
How about doing a “Soup For The HOPE” collection for the Mission of Hope. And perhaps have a Soup Social where you feed all of those who come and make the entry fee either soup, crackers, or peanut butter. It’s a wonderful way to have a warm and fun filled fellowship and the food that is collected will be sent to the various Mountain Ministry Center’s food pantry’s that we assist.
Maybe your company, church, Sunday school class, civic group, or other group would like to try this idea. Here is a flyer that your group can use as a promotional flier (Soup For The Hope Flyer). We would certainly be immensely grateful if you want to assist us with a Soup for The HOPE collection event. But, it is also absolutely okay if you can’t. If you need more information and or want to borrow one of our Mission of Hope collection barrels, please call the MOH Office at 865-584-7571.
Thanks for your friendship and support and for all you do to help us extend True HOPE in so many ways.
Emmette Thompson, Executive Director – Mission of Hope
