Have you noticed the growing gap between the cost of living and families in need in our community? Jesus commands us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. We can’t solve the entire problem, but we must do something to show love and offer Hope!

4 years ago one of our local schools reached out to us because of the overwhelming need of struggling families. As a small church we stepped in to meet needs and build relationships. Over the past few years we've grown and learned a lot. It's been amazing to see how God has provided and worked through this event to build bridges. This year, we want to invite you to join us!

Now the need has grown
Live Oak School District has asked for our help for 300+ kids in the most need. More than half are families in transition (need housing). This year we are joining forces with other churches and businesses to "Stoke Out" these kids and be a tipping point of Hope! 

What is the "Stoke Out?"
It's a private shopping event to empower parents to wrap new shoes and hooded sweatshirts for their kids. We will also are be providing food bags to the families as well! 

You can help
We can't do this alone! You can help by volunteering, donating or shopping for new Vans shoes (kids & youth sizes) or hooded sweatshirts (youth / junior sizes).  Please keep items between $30-$50 and bring to hope with a gift receipt by November 30th!
