 The Hope Center 

The Hope Center needs your assistance to help those who are less fortunate with their personal independence. We are seeking monetary donations to replenish The Hope Center's supply of basic hygiene items and cleaning supplies (laundry soap, toilet paper, shampoo, etc.), items we distribute to individuals and families while also seeking to serve their spiritual needs. Over the last six months, our supplies have been getting low because our need has increased from serving 30 families per month to more than 50 families per month.

The Hope Center's ministry offers practical assistance items along with the opportunity to show Christian love and share God's Word. Our location on the St. Matthew campus is also allowing us to build a relationship with the Pillars Day Resource Center next door. Each month we have been offering "Soup for the Soul" meals for Pillars' clients, most of whom are homeless. We also supply all the daily coffee, tea, and hot chocolate supplies for them. Recently, we have additionally begun a "move-in kit" program to provide basic household items to those getting an apartment through Pillars. For more info and a current "wish list" please see our new website at www.hope-center.org.

Please continue to pray for The Hope Center, our clients as well as our dedicated volunteers. If you are so blessed, please consider making a donation directly to The Hope Center at 1316 W. Lawrence Street, Appleton, WI 54914.
