As we continue to receive more information about the impact of COVID-19, we want to keep you updated on changes to our ministries at Hope House. Ultimately, our goal is to continue meeting the needs of those most vulnerable in our community as long as we are able. However, the spread of the virus has led to several changes to our plan that we shared with you on Friday.
Cooking for Hope
In response to the recently announced state of national emergency and urging from government officials to avoid large gatherings, the Hope House Board of Directors has voted to postpone the 10th Annual Cooking for Hope, which was scheduled for May 7. This decision was made carefully and intentionally to protect the health of our donors, volunteers, and community at large. We’re praying for you and our community as we navigate this difficult situation together. We ask for your prayers and continued support as you are able in the weeks and months ahead, and we look forward to celebrating God’s grace and provision with you at the 10th Annual Cooking for Hope in the future.
Donation Drop-Off and Pick-Up
We are no longer accepting item donations, nor are we scheduling donation pick-ups until further notice. This includes clothes, furniture, household items, and other items you may typically donate to our Community Store. However, we will still be accepting critical support to maintain operations and crisis assistance, such as monetary donations and donations of food, hygiene items, and other supplies listed at the link below:
With 25 men currently in our care through Program Living for Men, food donations are especially vital for their meals, as well as food assistance to meet community needs for our most vulnerable neighbors. Please consider making a monetary donation online at www.hopehousebg.com/donate, by mail, or in person at 112 W 10th Ave, Bowling Green, KY 42101 to support our ongoing needs. You can also support Hope House by shopping Amazon Smile and signing up for Kroger Community Rewards, which will donate a percentage of your purchases to Hope House at no additional cost to you.
Our Community Store will close indefinitely on Wednesday, March 18, at 4 PM. While we have remained open for our neighbors to shop as long as possible, we are following the recommendations of government officials to protect the health of our staff, volunteers, and community. We will still have items available for crisis assistance, but our normal shopping hours will end today until further notice. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to reopen as soon as possible.
