Greetings, Dear Mission Of Hope Friends;

Once again this year, we are blessed to have WBIR-TV (NBC) in Knoxville present their Annual Mission of Hope pre-Christmas Story. Its the reminder of why we keep doing all of what we do here at The Hope. It airs this evening at 6 PM and 11 PM; and there are two different stories.  It is also the Kick-Off to our Mission of Hope (MOH) Blue Barrel Christmas Drive Collection which begins tomorrow (Friday) and runs through Monday, December 5th. You can also view these stories online at

Bill Williams and Brian Holt have once again captured the very essence of the dire need and challenges that come with every day life in the rural Appalachian Communities, we feel so privileged to serve. A special thank you to them and to all of those who were willing to share from the heart, their life\’s story.

Thank you for your friendship and support and for all you do to help extend The Hope.

Sincerest Regards;
Emmette Thompson, Executive Director – Mission of Hope
