Another huge thank you to Essentia Surgical Services, who donated gifts for two families! Throughout the holiday season, we have received generous donations of meals and Christmas gifts for the children and families we serve, as well as gift cards for Target and Super One.
Thank you to every one of our community members who have donated money, gifts, time, and prayers to support New Hope For Families this year. Every little bit helps to support our cause and continue reaching to the most vulnerable in our community.
Our prayers have been answered to find a new home for one of our foster families! Thanks to the generosity of a local landlord, a rental property has been made available at a reduced cost through spring 2021.
As we say goodbye to the difficult, yet rewarding year of 2020, Let us all look forward to the new year with hope and anticipation of the possibilities in store!
