Hope for the Holidays

The holidays are here at House of Hope and we are preparing to support our community through the holidays.  Read on to learn how you can help us put holiday meals on every table and presents under every tree.

Holiday Meals

Everyone deserves to sit down to a special Holiday meal and House of Hope aims to make sure no Martin County household will go without. This year, we need extra help getting a turkey on every table with the "fixings" to go with it.  

To reach our goal of serving 300 families this year, we need your help.  We are collecting frozen turkeys, non-perishable sides such as stuffing, canned goods, and holiday-related food items and/or monetary contributions can be made which will stretch even farther to buy the necessary items.  

Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Donate a frozen turkey or ham. (Drop off to any House of Hope pantry location by Dec. 5.)
  • Donate holiday meal ingredients such as stuffing, side items, canned foods, holiday-related food items, etc. (Drop off to any House of Hope pantry location by Dec. 5.) See below for our most needed holiday meal items.
  • Conduct a food drive to collect holiday meal ingredients (Drop off to any House of Hope pantry location by Dec. 5.)

Holiday Presents

We all know the holidays are a stressful time.  For many of our neighbors, purchasing presents for their children is out of reach. House of Hope’s Holiday Program ensures that hundreds of children are able to receive gifts during the holidays.  Help us spread holiday cheer by supporting our holiday program. Here are some ways you can help:

Adopt-a-Family
You can choose to adopt just one child or a family of siblings. House of Hope will provide you with information about the child's age, gender and general interests. This option is a good choice for someone who likes to go out and shop for specific items for a child. To sign up or learn more please CLICK HERE

Toy Drive
Participate in a general toy drive where you will choose whatever gifts you think a child would like to receive this holiday. This option may be easier for large groups and businesses. To sign up or learn more please CLICK HERE

Teen / Tween Drive
Participate in House of Hope's Teen / Tween holiday program by donating teen appropriate gifts and gift cards to local stores. These items will be distributed to middle and high school aged teens/tweens. To sign up or learn more please CLICK HERE
