What We Do
Bit Of Hope's mission is to alleviate homelessness and increase hopefulness by lending a helping hand; giving the gift of hope by way of servicing communities. Bit Of Hope will help feed and provide resources to those less fortunate, in an effort to be the light at the end of the tunnel.
Sack Lunch Sunday's - The mission of this project is to provide 100 lunches to the homeless community every third Sunday of the month. Volunteers come together to put together a sack lunch; fill the bags with a sandwich, water, fruit, chips, and a custom fortune cookie. Afterward, we go into the community to distribute the lunches to heavily populated homeless areas.
Cold Weather Campaign - Bit of Hope collects items leading up to November to assist in keeping the homeless people warm through the Winter months. On the third Sunday of November we begin distributing the cold weather items. These items include: blankets, scarves, gloves. coats, etc...
