    When you give, HOPE gives back.

    We have a lot to be thankful for today. 💙

    From now until the end of the year, donations made through our Samaritan Fund Drive help us provide winter necessities like coats, gloves, and assistance on rising utility payments to our neighbors in need. This is HOPE Center of Edmond's largest annual fundraiser, and gives us the ability to assist over 500 families we see on a monthly basis.

    For #GivingTuesday, Edmond Women's Club is dedicating their campaign efforts to our Christmas Sponsorship Program. These donations will help purchase Christmas gifts for the families in our program. Contributions to our fundraiser from Nov. 29-Dec. 6 go towards stocking our food pantry and assisting with housing & utility bills.

    Downtown Edmond is still collecting nonperishable food donations for HOPE through Nov. 30 at #DowntownEdmond drop off locations.

    Edmond Young Professionals is holding a gift card drive for HOPE. These gift cards are distributed to teens of families in our Christmas Sponsorship Program. You can donate gift cards and sign up to sponsor families in our program through Nov. 30.

    More information for these events and donation opportunities can be found at www.hopecenterofedmond.com/online-giving.

    Your gifts of HOPE help us continue to give back to our community. 💙
