You can make a difference this Thanksgiving and Christmas!

It’s time to start preparing for this year’s Thanksgiving and Christmas programs, impacting the lives of the close to 20,000 people we help every year at New Hope!

Thanksgiving Program

Our families receive a special Thanksgiving basket filled with food for this holiday. The following items are the most needed items for our baskets: ham, turkey, vegetables, gravy, potatoes, canned fruit, pie filling, pie crust, boxed stuffing, cereal and mac and cheese.

You can also volunteer with us to help give these baskets to our families.
