Bigger and Better than Before ! Hope Week Spring 2021

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Matthew 25:40

Hope Week is an annual community service outreach program hosted by The Hope. We welcome all to join us in blessing the city and bring hope and light to the community through our collaboration with local charity organizations.

Dear The Hope Family,

We would like to thank everyone who eagerly signed up for Hope Week in the past few weeks. We believe everyone was looking forward to serve the different organizations we had lined up in our different cities. However, in light of the recent developments with the COVID-19 (Corona Virus), after careful consideration and deliberation with The Hope Team, we have decided to cancel the upcoming Hope Week to ensure the health and safety of our teams, volunteers, and members of our community. You are our first priority. To receive updates on our future events, be sure to follow us on our Instagram and our YouTube channel.

See you at our next Hope Week!
