January Update:

The Leadership team met and trained with Chicktime Founder, Lori Rhodes, to get things ready for the chapter launch. 

It was a beautiful time of hope. 

Join us in blessing the children of New Hope by donating items to help them celebrate a Christmas like never before!

We are collecting items for the children of New Hope Children’s Shelter. These children are only allowed a small duffle when traveling to their next destination. So we decided socks, blankets and books will work best. We will need 60 of each item. The shelter currently has 32 males and 28 females. All age 14-17.

Monetary gifts are also welcome at the link below! $480 will allow us $8 a child. Let’s make that happen!

Let’s come together and bring joy to the beautiful children of New Hope.

Thank you kindly for helping us with our goal!!
