At Giving Children Hope we are committed to meeting the needs of our families in crisis. In order to do this, we check in with them on a regular basis to get a better understanding of their challenges and barriers. Our most recent needs assessment revealed many families did not have enough blankets to keep themselves and their children warm at night.
For most of us, warmth is a privilege we enjoy without a second thought. The reality is there are so many families in our communities that struggle with choosing to pay rent or provide basic necessities for their children.
Thanks to a wonderful donation from Good360 and Eastside Christian Church we were able to respond and provide a glimmer of hope to 1,500 families in our We’ve Got Your Back (WGYB) Program.
We distributed these comforters at our Friday Food Distribution as well as to our 62 school partners who distributed t0o the families in their communities.
We received a message from one mom saying “My son and I would love to thank you so much for his blanket, right now with this cold weather he would definitely be more warm. He loved it and says thank you. God bless you.”
We are incredibly grateful to all our donors, partners, and volunteers who help us provide vulnerable children and families with the resources they need when they need them.
