Restoring Hope

This advent season, your Restoring Hope Celebration Offering supports families facing homelessness and children who don’t know where their next meal will come from.

You have a unique opportunity to go all in to fight family homelessness and childhood hunger as part of St. Luke’s 2020+ Vision.

FAQs:

  • How will my gift help children and families?
    • Your Restoring Hope Offering will go to:
      • moving working families from motels, storage units, and over-crowded houses into their own apartments
      • closing meal gaps for children facing hunger and who don’t know where their next meal is coming from
      • connecting families with Jobs Partnership, Circles and other empowering programs.
  • How many children and families will be served? 
    • With your gifts…
      • 60 families who are homeless at Maxey and Mollie Ray Elementary Schools (St. Luke’s Educational IMPACT partner schools) could gain stable housing.
      • 1,400+ food insecure youth at Olympia High School could focus on their studies instead of worrying about having enough to eat.
      • 50 young people in East Winter Garden will have consistent access to nutritious food options.
  • How can I Restore Hope for children and families?
