Trinity's own Alexis De Leon who serves so joyfully in our worship, nursery, Vacation Bible School, decorating in our sanctuary, garden and so many other ways (and is in the 7th grade) is working with her mom to help feed the hungry through her mom's employer the HOPE OUTREACH CENTER. Just as we encouarge everyone to consider picking up extra non-perishable food like peanut butter and jelly and spaghetti sauce or easy opening cans of Chef Boy R Dee for the Trinity Food Panty and dropping it off in the narthex - we would also like to share the opportunity to support Alexis and her mom tomorrow SUN JUN 3rd as they work for the HOPE OUTREACH CENTER by dropping off any non-perishable food item in the narthex and labelling it for (ALEXIS).
HOPE Outreach Center, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501c(3) founded in 1995. HOPE Outreach is based in Davie. HOPE provides an immediate 'hand up' to ‘regular’ people in the community who suddenly find themselves unable to make ends meet due to a job loss, disability, health crisis, and/or some other emergency circumstance. Providing emergency financial support, food and other educational and social services allows families in crisis to return to self reliance and independence quickly and comfortably. HOPE Outreach Center welcomes the day when their services as a financial and emotional bridge are no longer needed.
HISTORY: In 2011, HOPE provided over nearly 100 tons of food to neighbors in Broward County. In addition to the HOPE Center’s food pantry, HOPE has also offered local families necessary programs and services including an after-school enrichment program for the children of working parents, elderly companionship and visitation, emergency financial support, as well as assistance with and applying for public social services. The HOPE Center has five paid staff members who serve approximately 100 people a week. The organization is fueled almost entirely by small, private contributions and through the hard work of a dedicated working Board and more than 150 active volunteers.
