It is heartbreaking to know that over 105,000 Chicagoans do not have
the basic necessities that many of us take for granted.
The mission of Giving Them Hope is to provide blessing bags to the homeless and care boxes to children in underprivileged countries through the compassion and care of the local community. With each of these offerings, we strive to spread the love of Christ and give them hope for the future.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
We are currently raising money to fund our upcoming projects in the Chicago area! On Monday, April 8th, we will be hosting an event at Breakthrough Urban Ministries Men's Shelter in Chicago, Illinois. The event will include delicious food, fun games and of course - a lot of cheering! Alongside the fellowship we will be offering to the men at the shelter, we will be providing each guest with a blessing bag filled with essential items to which they do not easily have access. Things like toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, socks, soap and other everyday essentials - plus a few extra treats of course!
After the success of our very first event in February (a Valentine's Day serve at a women's shelter), we want to continue to be able to provide these events and bags to those who are homeless through the Chicago area. We know that we cannot do any of this without your help!
Thank you for your donation to help us not only meet the immediate needs of these people, but to provide them with hope for a better future!
