On Tuesday, May 7th, we’re participating in Washington County Gives 2019!
Washington County Gives is a unique opportunity for people in the area to donate online to various non-profits in the community.
For 24 hours the The Hope Center will be able to accept online donations through this county-wide day of fundraising. Money raised during the campaign will go towards all the programs and services provided for free at The Hope Center.
The Hope Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for people in need. Whether it’s a national holiday or a blizzard, our shelter is always open and our kitchen is always cooking up something delicious!
And we provide all services and programs for FREE to people in need! And on top of that we accept NO government/tax money to operate. Thanks to profits generated from our Thrift Stores in Hagerstown and Chambersburg and through the generous donations of individuals, churches, businesses and civic groups, we are able to meet the needs of thousands of people in the greater Hagerstown area – and we’ve been doing it since 1955!
We are the oldest, continually operating homeless shelter in the area and we aren’t stopping any time soon!
A donation during Washington County Gives will help us continue to help people in need and make necessary improvements to our facilities so that we can plan the future of HOPE in Hagerstown!
We are in the beginning stages of a full refurbishment and expansion of our food services facilities. We’ve outgrown our dining room and pantry and our kitchen is in need of major renovations. Your donation will help us as we move forward in improving the food services area at The Hope Center where thousands of men, women and children receive daily fresh meals and food bag assistance. Your gift is making sure that the homeless will always have a safe place off the streets to get a hot plate of food, the elderly on fixed incomes can have access to healthy meals, and children in Hagerstown will not have to live another day of food insecurity.
