One of the Garner charities that is dear to us is Community of Hope Ministries. This month we are encouraging you to help us help under served children in Garner. So many economically disadvantaged children in Garner have fallen behind academically and are below grade level in reading and math. COVID-19 widened that achievement gap. We need you to sponsor a child and help them catch back up to grade level. The COHM after school tutoring program provides transportation to the program, tutoring by teachers, snacks, safety and food boxes for the families.
Most importantly students are supported in a safe, structured classroom environment with the same caring teachers every day. This is a tremendous opportunity for Community of Hope and our partners to fill the huge gap in learning for vulnerable children and families in our community.
Our “Hope League” is recruiting new heroes and we are looking for local businesses and community members to be Heroes for Hope. We are looking for heroes to help sponsor children in the after school program. A gift of $150 will prevent hunger, isolation and instability for the most vulnerable children in our area. When you sponsor a child you will get your picture taken holding a sign and will be announced on social media.
Alossi is also a collection site to help stock the COHM food pantry! We are collecting dry beans and would love for you to drop some off anytime we are open. Thank you for caring about our community and those in need.
