Cards of HOPE is our gift card program. We provide our families with gift cards for various items and services. Gift cards are very versatile and can be used in most establishments. Our families are able to use gift cards for everything from food and gas, to clothing and childrens' birthday gifts. We also in some cases supply our parents with public transportation cards so they're able to travel back and forth to work. In many instances, our families simply need a little assistance to make it through to their next pay check.
We held a Can the Bag Luggage/Book Bag drive and collected over 40 pieces of luggage. They were donated to children in foster care with Henry County DFACS. As these children are transitioning from home to home, we feel they need something of their own to take with them. We have established a great relationship with Henry County DFCS and plan to branch out to other counties to assist in their foster care programs.
Go Ye Therefore Outreach partnered with Hidden Gems Consulting, LLC, theARC International Ministries, G2G Bikers, and Toys for Tots to provide gifts and food to single-parent families for the holidays. These partnerships were an effort to help make the holiday season brighter and to ease some financial burden from the single-parent families we service. Our desire is to continue this program yearly and reach even more families.
Go Ye Therefore Outreach held a coat drive and collected over 130 coats. They were donated to Haven House, a charity we partnered with within Henry County, GA. We have partnered with other organizations recently and this will allow us to reach more families and individuals in need with this program.
Our Blessing Bag program was created to give assistance to our underserved homeless and less fortunate population. Recently, we sponsored a Blessing Bag project for the homeless and were able to hand out over 50 bags in downtown Atlanta, GA. These bags included many personal care products that would help restore dignity among the homeless and less fortunate individuals we encountered. We will have more of these events that directly impact our homeless and less fortunate population.
Go Ye Back to School is our school supply and uniform drive. We have worked directly with our local school teachers to assist them with purchasing school supplies. We understand that many of our teachers are spending their own money to supply the children in their classes. We want to ease some of that burden for them. We also work with our single parents to get their children preapared for school. We intend to expand this program to reach more parents, teachers, and school systems.
