Hope Church Community Blood Drive and Heat & Eat for the Homeless Drive
November 23, 2021
Hope Church Community Heat & Eat for the Homeless – October 17th – November 23rd – Designated boxes for drop offs will be available at Hope Church in Fellowship Hall starting on Sunday, October 17th.
This will also coincide with our last Hope Church Community Blood Drive on Tuesday, November 23rd – 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm in Fellowship Hall. Follow the link below to sign up (Ctrl+click to follow link) Masks and ID required. Walk-ins are welcome.
Only 38% of our population is eligible to donate blood. Of the 38%, only 4% actually donate. IF only 1% more donated blood, there would be no blood shortages! Please consider donating today.
We are once again collecting new and gently used blankets, socks (new only, please), ready to eat and/or heat and serve canned foods, and pre-packaged foods to share with Victory Alliance Church in downtown Indianapolis. They will share the items with our homeless community. They do not have resources to prepare foods, other than heating and serving, so, please, no foods that must be prepared.
Items that work best are canned stews, instant soups, canned spaghetti/ravioli, easy to open cans (ready to eat), beef jerky, tuna packets, granola bars, nutri-grain bars, trail mix, pudding cups, fruit snacks, individually packed dried fruits, juice boxes, Ensure, individually packed crackers, pretzels, chips, cookies, etc. Water bottles, individual packs of Crystal Light and Gatorade are also helpful.
