With Thanksgiving right around the corner and a limited supply of Halloween candy left, it is safe to say that the Holiday season has arrived! Here at Hope House, we are all getting very excited as the weather begins to change because there is really nothing cuter than a toddler in a puffy coat. We have a lot planned for the next couple months and we would love some help because as they say, the more the merrier! In order for us to be able to provide all of the necessary services, we need to raise more money before the year is out. There are a few different ways for Hope House supporters to contribute.
We are selling raffle tickets and Holiday cards, both of which are affordable and seasonally appropriate. The raffle tickets are $5 and the prizes include a Kindle, Redbirds tickets, and a 50” LED TV! $5 may seem like an insignificant amount, but it provides a child at Hope House two hot meals a day for a whole week. The drawing is December 7th and any of these prizes would make a great gift.
1st prize: 50 inch LED TV from Dilday TV; valued at $1,000
2nd prize: Suntrust Bank suite for a Redbirds game (24 tickets, and 4 parking passes to a game to be coordinated between the winner and Suntrust Bank); valued at $650
3rd prize: 32GB Kindle Fire HD; valued at $250
Tickets are available for purchase at the Hope House administrative office or via mail! Cash and check are accepted!
Email Grace Weil at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 901-272-2702 x: 214 for more information.
Another option is making a donation to Hope House in honor of a friend, family member, or loved one. For just $15, our staff and volunteers will send this beautiful hand-written card to the recipient of your choice:
