Hope for the Holidays

November 20-December 7

Add a little bit of joy to your holiday season by doing something that will make a difference for another family. “Hope for the Holidays” helps connect local families in need with generous individuals and organizations in our community to provide food and gifts they might otherwise go without. By “adopting” a family or individual, you can purchase items from a wish list completed by each of the men, women and children served by Operation Hope. General donations and gift cards to local stores are also welcome. If you are interested in sponsoring a family or individual, or would like to volunteer to sort and transport gifts, please contact us by November 20th: Hope for the Holidays Program Coordinator Evie Angel at evieangel@aol.com or Volunteer Program Manager Donna Schmidt at dschmidt@operationhopect.org or 292-5588 ext. 207. UPDATE We had a tremendous response! We have matched our families and are all set. We can always use gift cards for Stop & Shop, Target and Walmart for any of the families and individuals in the program, if you’re interested in donating them, any amount. If so, please feel free to drop them off December 5-7, 10am-2pm OR 4:30pm-6:30pm, at St. Anthony of Padua Church on South Pine Creek Road, Fairfield. Thank you for your generosity and for opening your hearts to those most in need in our community. Happy holidays to you and your families!
