Are you and your family looking to help someone in need this Christmas season?! This year we are collecting donation items for two local agencies – The Springfield Dream Center and Safe to Sleep – and we would love for you to partner with us to bring Hope to our city!
First, we will be collecting winter gear for kids at the Springfield Dream Center. The Springfield Dream Center exists as a hub of help and hope to the impoverished of Springfield. Through their, after-school program and community dinners they are building relationships and connecting families to needed resources. New or GENTLY used items are needed in all sizes/ages.
Second, Hope Women is partnering with Safe to Sleep, which is the only women’s overnight homeless shelter in Springfield. We are going to provide much-needed hygiene items to the women that stay at the shelter.
