Let me count the ways...
Some people think that the only way to give is through financial support. While that is one of the ways to donate, it's not the only way.
There are several different ways for you to support our work through donations. Take a few minutes to read through the various ways that you, your family, business, church or civic group can give to help people in our community.
D O N A T E your time
Many people don't realize how important volunteers are to our ministry. By volunteering your time, you're helping us keep our operational costs down therefore allowing us to use our funds more efficiently and effectively to help those in need.
Whether it's volunteering at Thanksgiving, during our summer camp for inner-city kids, providing maintanence or helping to keep our facilities clean, there are many ways for you and groups of volunteers to get involved.
D O N A T E your resources
Financial giving is a vital part of our operating budget. Since we take zero tax dollars, we rely on the continued financial support of generous people in our community. And since 1955, God has consistently provided the people who have helped us keep our facilities open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
If you would like to give, whether it be a one time gift or a recurring donation, we gladly welcome your contribution to helping provide necessary services to desperate people for free.
We have a safe and secure PayPal account that you can donate through. Simply enter the appropriate information and you're on your way to helping others. If you prefer not to use PayPal, you can always mail in a donation to us or drop it by our Administrative Office during business hours which are Mon - Fri from 8:15am - 5pm.
Have you been cleaning out your closets, basements and garages during the COVID-19 pandemic? We can help you out! You may not realize this but by donating your gently used items you can actually help change a life. Items donated will either be placed in one of our two area thrift stores or be given to individuals and families in need in our community free of charge. Our Donation Center is open for drop-off MON - FRI (CLOSED WEDNESDAY) from 9am - 4pm and SAT from 9-3pm. The Donation Center is located at the back of our parking lot at 215 W. Church St. For more info about donating please click this link:
D O N A T E your things
Ok so we're not saying that you need to actually donate all the food in your pantry but the next time you're at your local grocer you could always grab a few extra items for our food ministry. The Hope Center feeds thousands of people each year which can get quite expensive. By giving various food items you can help us keep our costs down so we can continue doing everything for free while also making sure that no one goes hungry in our community. And if you really want to stock our shelves, why not host a food drive at your place of employment, school, church or civic club?
