Organize a Needs Drive for HOPE:
Can you imagine how quickly 13 men go through laundry detergent? If you use an item in your home, we use it at HOPE. Organize a drive in your school, church, business, or civic organization for one or more of the always needed items at HOPE:
Razors & Shaving Cream
Impact Work Day: Every now and then, the facilities need a little TLC. In the past we’ve done everything from hanging drywall to planting flowers on work days. If this is the kind of volunteering you want to do, we’ll send you an email with the project details when we schedule work days.
Office/Administration: Sometimes, we need a few extra hands in the office putting labels on newsletters, making hygiene kits, entering data, organizing before and after a special event, etc. If you’d like to volunteer in the office a couple hours here and there, we’ll give you a call when we need a little extra help.
Belk Charity Sale Team: The Belk Charity Sale happens every spring and fall. Team members ask their friends, church groups, book clubs, etc. to donate $5 to Impact. Belk gives each donor a $5 gift card to use on the day of the mega Sale. The $5 goes directly to Impact, and donors get to do good & shop! Win-win! On average, team members collect 50 donations. The Spring 2014 team raised over $2,500! How many donations can you collect?
Ride for HOPE: Ride for HOPE is the last Saturday in September every year (rain or shine). It is our biggest event of the year, and we need lots of help. There are several opportunities to get involved: from obtaining sponsors, collecting prizes, recruiting riders, advertising, organizing before and after, working registration, preparing lunch, to set up and clean up.
Give up a Cup Team: Give up a Cup happens every fall in honor of Veterans Day, Nov 11. Impact asks folks to "Give up a Cup" and donate the money they would have spent on that coffee, tea, Diet Coke, etc. to Deserve, which provides local veterans free, wheelchair accesible transportation to & from their medical appointments. Team members reach out to their friends, church groups, book clubs, etc. and ask them to "Give up a Cup." 2000 cups at $5.00 each will provide gas for the wheelchair accessible van all year long! 3000 cups will do that plus insure the van for a year! How many cups can you raise?
