December 3, 2019 - Christmastime is a season of giving, spending time with family and making memories. But for some, this time of year brings sadness due to the loss of family, friends, and loved ones. To keep the memory of our loved ones alive this season, you can give the Gift of Hope to those in need. This is an opportunity for you to make a contribution in memory of a loved one. While carrying on their memory, you will also be contributing to Shelby County Outreach Ministries, which serves our community by feeding the hungry and assisting the needy.
For a contribution of $10 or more, the memory of your loved ones can shine this Christmas season. A star, bearing the name of your loved one will be displayed in the front windows of Shelby County Outreach Ministries and shared with the local media.
So far, in 2019, our Helping Hands Outreach Center has distributed 2,459 emergency food boxes, which fed 5,178 people. We have also met the needs of 2,926 people in Shelby County. Our Senior Nutrition Site serves fresh meals to seniors, 60 years old and above, during the week and delivers meals to homebound seniors in our community through our Meals on Wheels program. So far, this year, these two programs have prepared and served 11,421 meals to senior citizens in Shelby County.
So, if you would like to give a Gift of Hope by contributing in the memory of a loved one, or make a year-end contribution, please call us at 936-598-4990. Thank you and have a blessed holiday season.
