Eliminating Period Poverty in Iredell Schools

 

The Red Cart Project is a collaboration of local advocates who believe that menstrual health products are not a luxury. When students have access to period products, they can:

·    Avoid stress from the potential for embarrassing leaks

·    Stay in class

·    Focus on learning

·    Avoid risking their health by creating a menstrual barrier out of toilet paper, fabric, paper towels, or other unhealthy products.

The ripple effect of COVID-19 and high inflation has forced local families to continue to make difficult decisions each day regarding basic needs such as food, utilities, and now more than ever, backpacks and school supplies for their children for the new school year.

Join the HopeNow Foundation and WFTV Channel 9 as our Central Florida community comes together in unity as a strong positive force to help our local children.  This virtual school supply drive will provide children in Osceola, Seminole and Orange County public schools with a new backpack and complete set of supplies.

Together, we can ensure that no child in our community is left behind due to the inability to access basic school supplies. Thank you for your help and generosity!

A special thank you to WFTV 9 Family Connection,

D&W SourceAll, McCoy Federal Credit Union, Stanley Steemer, The UPS Store, Mr. Sparky and so many of our Central Florida companies, organizations, and fellow residents.

Kindest Regards,

Center for Children and Families, Inc. (CCFI) is seeking donors to participate in this year’s annual Holiday Wishes gift drive. Last year alone, this longstanding effort provided supplemental holiday gift cards to more than 300 clients, Boys & Girls Club members and their siblings.

To make this program a reality, CCFI needs the help of the Norman community. Individuals, families and organizations can help support a child by "adopting" their holiday wish list. Wish lists are submitted anonymously and include everything from toys to books to basic needs, such as clothing and winter coats.

Glad Tidings this Christmas with Star of Hope!

 Star of Hope Mission’s Extended Services program will continue the long-running Christmas Adopt-a-Family program this year. As we provide hope, encouragement, and resources to homeless, formerly homeless, and at-risk households in Houston and surrounding areas, we invite Sponsors to help provide Christmas gifts, household items, and other treats for those impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

For the past two years we have seen an unprecedented need in our city…and the entire world…caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the rise of inflation. In this COVID19 era, millions of households were impacted by furloughs, lay-offs, and other economic crises. We expect there will be a great demand for assistance this holiday season…and this is who needs help:

Homeless Families: Working in conjunction with local schools to identify homeless families and unaccompanied youth/minors, in 2019, we were able to expand the program to include this often-forgotten population. These families are living “doubled-up” with family or friends, or in places not inhabitable.

Former Star of Hope program families: The history of Glad Tidings begins with our program graduates. In 1993 we had Sponsors “adopt” families who moved out of our shelters and began creating their new lives as they recovered from homelessness. That tradition continues today. Most are single-parent (single moms) homes and have children of varying ages.

Outreach families: Several years ago, we opened the registration for Glad Tidings to qualifying, at-risk families. These families are single parents with children; grandmothers raising their grandchildren; single dads with children; and two-parent families who are struggling in today’s economy. This is the largest group of Recipient Families…especially in this year following the Covid-19 pandemic. (NOTE: these families go through a screening process to determine eligibility and need)

 

What you can do…

While Christmas is not all about presents … gift-giving and receiving is a big part of this holiday season. Receiving a gift means someone cares, someone loves, someone took time. While toys and fun items are GREAT … clothing, household goods, and personal care items are extremely helpful as well.

As a Sponsor, you will have the opportunity to share the gift of Glad Tidings! Our Adopt-a-Family Christmas program allows you to connect with a family to share a word of encouragement and be the light of Christ to someone in need.

Our Sponsors personally deliver Christmas gifts to the adopted family they have chosen. This unique opportunity is a meet-and-greet moment for the family and the sponsor.

Check out the listings below to find a family you can help today. As a Sponsor, you will have the option to adopt a total two (2) families or less.
