We have received enormous support through volunteers signing up to be present at Day of Hope and help — for which we are very grateful — but we also need financial support!
Please consider making a financial donation to the Church of the Redeemer specifically in support of our Day of Hope school and personal supplies, medical care, hair cuts, and clothing items. Any donation amount will help! Read below to find out what we’re doing and how you can help.
We will be hosting 150 local area students and their siblings who are in great need or homeless. This event is designed to help meet their basic back-to-school needs. Each child will receive a backpack with binders, paper, folders, a ruler, pencils, pens and highlighters – all the necessary school supplies. Each child will also receive a care bag with shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, sunscreen and more.
Included in the Day of Hope will be a medical exam, a dental exam, an eye exam, a haircut, photos, gift cards for new clothes and new shoes, child ID cards and many other resources. Food will be served throughout the day. This event is completely FREE and we need your help!
Just bring your cash or check donation to the Parish Office between 9 and 5 p.m., weekdays, or bring it with you to church on any Sunday between now and the event. You may also mail your donation to: The Church of the Redeemer, Attention: Day of Hope, 222 S. Palm Ave., Sarasota, FL 34239.
Be sure to put “Day of Hope” on the check.
