Greetings Dear Friends from The Hope.

BACK TO SCHOOL Preparation for The Hope starts today.

Doing what we do with our Back to School Program requires us to start a little earlier than most. This year we will be assisting 27 rural Elementary Schools and serving a little over 11,000 Students with BRAND NEW Backpacks and School Supplies, and they are much needed by all who receive them. So we are very excited at The Hope as we begin the process of preparing all of those 27 delivery programs.

This year we will not be doing a Back to School supplies collection with our dear Mission of Hope Friends at Food City. I am working with their management team to revamp how we collect with them and we hope to have a NEW and better collection event by next year\’s Back to School Program. With that said, we would be very appreciative if you, your church/Sunday school, your company, your civic group/trade group club, or etc. would like to collect school supplies for The Hope. Please see our web site at or call the MOH office at 865-584-7571 for more details.

If you would like to help with financial donations to help support this wonderful program, we would be immensely grateful and honored. You can donate by calling the MOH Office (865-584-7571) or visiting our web site ( or simply mail your donations to: Mission of Hope – P.O. Box 51824 – Knoxville, TN 37950.

Thank you for your friendship and support and for all you do to help extend The Hope in so many ways.

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