Hope's Mitten Tree will be planted in the Welcome Center from November 12th through February 2024. On it, Hope collects new hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves to benefit men, women, and children in Southeast Michigan who need the gift of warmth.
Hope is "adopting" two large families through Neighborhood House and will be providing them with complete Christmas experiences including toys, clothing, gift cards, and wrapping paper. A small group from Community Service Team receives the wish lists and does the shopping but what is needed is funds to support this annual event. Donations can be made via check designated to Adopt-A-Family, via online giving (designate funds for Adopt-A-Family) or via cash in a labeled envelope. If excess funds are received, overflow will be allocated for Christ in Action funding designated for those in need. Funds will be collected from November 19 through December 17. Click here to donate.

In addition to helping local families, we are also offering an opportunity for Hope members and friends to provide bilingual Bibles for the children of Casa Hogar de Los Ninos. To purchase bibles on Amazon, please click here.

Want a chance to play Santa Claus? Join the Goodfellows on December 16th to deliver gifts and food to families and seniors in Farmington and Farmington Hills. This popular service day out requires nothing more than a vehicle with an emptied trunk, a phone with gps, and a few hours of time. Cars load up starting around 8:45am at 37849 Interchange Dr., Farmington Hills and all deliveries are complete by 11am. A great opportunity for families to engage in community service together.
