H3lp us H3lp the children
Organized by: Jennifer Emerick
Hello thank you for H3LPing us. H3LP is a brand new community support group. We H3LP give Children Hope self esteem self confidence and love. We H3LP in the following ways: We have Programs for Christmas, Easter, Back to School, Birthdays, and community involvement. Operation Christmas Cheer was started last year at Christmas time to pay it forward and boy did it do well. With help from friends family and caring strangers we were able to help 67 children receive hats coats gloves under garments clothing shoes and toys! It was truly amazing. We have a goal to help 200 children this year and so far we are off to a great start. So great that we need more space. We have outgrown Santas secret shop "the garage and basement" so we are asking for H3LP. I have found a property here in town perfect for this. Not only is it a Great place for our group the owner has agreed to rent it to us for only 550.00 a month and that includes an extra storage unit for more donations. We will be using this space for an office so everyone can come to drop off or pick donations. As well as meetings, youth group activities, sorting the donations just to name a few. I have received a donation of 300 Easter buckets for our Easter program to use next year from our friends at Berry's Plastics! Thank you again Berry's. Our back to school project is still in the making but we will be helping children this fall with essentials to start the year off right. Our Birthday Box of Love program provides a parent with a cake mix, frosting, party hats, plates and napkins. As well as a couple toys for their child should they be down on their luck and not able to purchase these for their child's birthday. Our youth volunteer program let's children volunteer to help others in our communities. They will soon be out of school with nothing productive to do. They will be out performing acts of kindness for others. We are currently looking for sponsors or donations to purchase t shirts for the children to wear while we are out working. This helps keep them out of trouble and makes them realize they can help no matter how young they are. It also shows them how helping others not only makes you feel better but helps bring joy to others. The money raised will secure the building for us and prepay a few months rent. It will also go towards utilities and supplies. It will also help pay for t shirts and food for the children to eat while doing projects. If you are making a donation today thank you very much! If you would like more information on being a sponsor or a mentor please let us know. If you have a child who would like to help us or is in need of help please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. Thank you for taking the time to read about H3LP have a great day.
