Holiday Hope Creates Christmas Miracles!
Here at Holiday Hope, we are dedicated to providing a Christmas to needy families who would otherwise not have one. Christmas is supposed to be a joyful time......but for some families, it's a time of stress and uncertainty.
Imagine being a parent....Christmas is right around the corner. Maybe you've been unemployed , or maybe you've had some medical problems . After paying the bills , there is absolutely nothing left for gifts or a special Christmas dinner. You are heartbroken for your children. What will you do? The kids don't understand, and they will be so disapointed Christmas morning. "Why didn't Santa come?" They are good kids, and they deserve better than this. These are the stories behind the creation of Holiday Hope.
Last year, we were able to give food, clothing, and gifts to 175 families, resulting in over 500 individuals having a brighter Christmas! We work with local organizations, local food banks, shelters, and others. Our goal this year is to provide an even bigger impact by helping even more famiies!
These testimonials are WHY we do this!!!

Information for Christmas 2016 - Please read carefully.
Holiday Hope starts early! Apply early for help! Also, "Adopt a Family" starts early, so if you would like to help, please contact us.
Nominations and applications will be accepted from September 15 through November 1. As in previous years, a professional reference will be required (unless the nominator is a teacher, pastor, counselor, etc.) We will not be accepting applications after November 1, as we have done this in the past, and our volunteers have not been able to enjoy this beautiful season with their own families.
We are a small organization with limited resources and volunteers. We appreciate your understanding in this matter. We have a responsibility to our supporters and our Holiday Hope families to select the most needy families who would absolutely not have a Christmas if not for our help. We realize there is much need out there, and we would love to help everyone, but we can only do what we have the resources to do.
This year, more than ever, we are asking for help from the community through our "Adopt a Family" program. This program has been very successful and allowed us to help many more families. Anyone (group, business, families, and individuals) who are interested in “adopting” a family this holiday season, please let us know. We will match you up with a family early in November, so you have time to shop. It's a more "hands on", personal approach to helping, as you get to actually shop for your "adopted" family members
If you are interested in adopting a family, please contact us early! We need the gifts before our family pick up day, which will be December 11. We will be finishing up at this time, so our volunteers have time to spend with their own families, too!
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing you much love and Happy Holidays!
