2023 Rise Up with Hope and Compassion Campaign

Easter and Spring are times for new beginnings.  It’s a reminder of the joy and peace we are afforded when we show one another love, hope, and compassion.  There are more than 600 families right here in our local community that are seriously struggling to provide for their families.

Please join us as provide these families with complete Easter/Spring Meals, a fresh lunch, and many other goodies to celebrate the season.


There are many ways to get involved!

Financially Sponsor a Meal

For the Easter/Spring season, we expect to distribute about 600 holiday food boxes, each with a $10 ALDI gift card included to help with purchasing fresh proteins.  Financial sponsorships help us cover the purchase of any items not received through traditional donations.   All financial donations will be used to fund our meal boxes, ALDI gift cards, fresh meal distributions, and other campaign needs.

We have many who help us collect the items needed to fill our boxes with essential meal items for these families.  If you have items you would like to donate and/or would like to host a drive in your neighborhood, within your team, or with you club/group, please visit this link.
