Preparation for

 Christmas Hope
​     It takes great organization to make sure all the gifts are set up and ready for the children.  Each group of gifts is checked and re-checked to make sure no child is overlooked.  A final check is done as the gifts are staged for the Christmas Hope Program.

​     We give God all praise and honor for the success of Christmas Hope 2014.  We would also like to extend a huge thank you to all the donors and volunteers who make Christmas Hope possible.  Without donors we would not be able to purchase toys.  Without volunteers we would not be able to get all the treat bags and gifts prepared and ready.  Christmas Hope truly is a community effort.  It takes many individuals and businesses working hand in hand to put this program together.  Thank you all for your heart for the children and families of our community.  You ARE the heroes of Christmas Hope!

     Christmas is about giving. The world was given the greatest gift on that first Christmas.  His name is Jesus.

​     Christmas Hope 
is blessed with volunteers who are willing to do whatever is necessary to get the work done. 

      There are many families in our community who have little or no hope of providing a good Christmas for their families. 
​    Many of the individuals pictured in these photos rearranged their personal schedules so they could wrap and assemble gifts for Christmas Hope.   
      As you can see by these pictures, the Lord is enabling us to live up to our name...

Christmas Hope 2016

     Christmas Hope is an effort to reach and Restore Hope to children and families who are in need of assistance during the holidays.
In 2016 over 200 children were blessed with gifts and their families were blessed with a complete Christmas meal and other commodities. 
Gifts for each child were selected based on age category. Every child was given one age appropriate SPECIAL gift and several other gifts. 
Gifts ranged from an Amazon Fire Tablet & Case to air hockey tables, pogo sticks, doll houses, discover and learn sets, clothing, toys and much more!  

     Another facet of Christmas Hope 2016 was to provide Gift Baskets to 80 Seniors.  Treat Bags were distributed to over 2,000 individuals. The children at three local schools were included in this distribution.  It was a great joy to be able to bless the children in the schools with the treat bags.    

     Christmas Hope is a multi-tiered effort that touched approximately 2,500 individuals with purchases and in kind donations totaling $67,128.44!  Programs under the Christmas Hope umbrella included:  Autism Society, Blessing Baskets for Seniors, Bright Hopewell, Christmas Drama, Christmas Hope Program, Falcon Children’s Home, Hispanic Outreach in Charleston, Hurricane Matthew Relief, Treat Bags, Turbeville Children's Home and Windows Intl. Outreach in South Port.
