Hope for The Holidays!

Posted at 1:05 AM


Hope for the Holidays!

With having time to reflect during the Thanksgiving holiday, we were reminded of the people and things that we feel grateful for and our fortunate to have in our lives. Keeping that in mind, we have decided to deliver some Hope for the Holidays! For our Christmas outreach this year, we are devoted to helping the homeless in our community. We will be making “Blessing Bags: to distribute to the homeless. Completed “Blessing Bags” will be delivered directly to some of the homeless camps and to homeless shelters in Franklin County, so that they can deliver them to those who need them the most. If you would be willing to donate a Blessing Bag or the items needed to put one together, we, just as the recipient would be beyond grateful. Items can be dropped off at our office, Thompson Building Associates / ResQ24- 3333 Refugee Road, Columbus, OH 43232. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle at 614-206-2993 or by email at [email protected].
