Can you believe it is time to plan for A Day Of Hope 2016? Last year, we served 232 Children, 78 Families. This year we are expecting 600 children!! So, save the date! August 13th 10am-3pm (it may last for an additional hour, we will know more by July). Set up will start at 8am and We will be having it at the same location – The YMCA, 5000 Claire Chapin Epps Drive, Myrtle Beach (YAY!) If you know families who qualify to attend the event and receive the supplies for their Children, please have them call Catholic Charities to register. The number is 1-855-377-1357 option 1 and tell them they are calling to register for A Day Of Hope.
We need at least 20 more hair stylists, and more volunteers as well as people to donate for backpacks and supplies as well as household supplies in a recyclable bag. I have attached the list of household supplies that we collected last year and the best way to do it is to have people bring the items in a recyclable bag. We will collect ahead of time just like last year. I have also attached an initial flyer for the event so you can share it with others.
Anyone who donates money will receive a 501C letter for their donation. We are also working on a GoFundMe page for those who would like to donate online.
I have scheduled monthly informational meetings to be held in the meeting room upstairs in the Carolina Forest Kroger. The first one is NEXT THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH 6PM-7PM. The following dates are the others, they will all be the same time:
Thursday, March 24th
Thursday, April 21st
Thursday, May 19th
Thursday, June 30th
Thursday, July 28th
At those informational meetings, people will learn about what we are doing at the event, and how they will fit in and be able to serve.
The final volunteer informational meeting will be on Thursday, August 11th 6pm-7:30pm location TBA – please save this date as well. This is the meeting where all final plans are made, questions are answered, everyone will receive their tshirt and hand in the volunteer forms.
Again, thank you in advance for everything you are about to do! I am so excited to see God work again here in Myrtle Beach!
