It’s a wrap on our annual gifting program, “Hope for the Holidays!” Thank you for opening your hearts to brighten the holiday season for our neighbors in need.

Donations came from individuals and groups of all sizes, including families, school groups, co-workers, book clubs and friends. Your generosity made a direct impact on 75 individuals and 37 families ranging in size from two people to eight, right here in our community. Each client received $175 in gift cards. THANK YOU to over 125 sponsors, including 40 new ones!

And most of all, THANK YOU to our two angel volunteers, Meredith McCormack and Sheila Sullivan. Taking the reins from longtime Hope for the Holidays angel Evie Angel, Meredith and Sheila effortlessly made “Hope for the Holidays” a success, giving hope and joy to our clients in another challenging year.

New this year! Meredith and Sheila offered the opportunity for children to be involved and to add some personalization to the gift card packages. We are grateful to SASO Girls (Students Athletes Serving Others) for making over 100 cards for Operation Hope’s clients and for hosting two card-making workshops. These workshops were open to all Hope for the Holidays sponsors. 

If you’d like to participate in the 2024 program, please contact Meredith and Sheila here to be added to the email list. We welcome new friends!

We wish you and yours the happiest of holiday seasons and a blessed 2024!
