We believe in the collective power of community and that choosing kindness can change the world. This month we have partnered with several local businesses to raise awareness and funds for Note in the Pocket, a nonprofit whose mission is to “Clothe Children with Dignity and Love.” With over 50,000 children who need help, the money raised during this campaign will go towards providing desperately needed clothing for school aged children in Wake County who are impoverished and homeless.

We are so excited to be partnering with Choose Local & Small Y’all for the We Choose Hope campaign. We need your help to make it a success and make a big impact in the lives of children and families in need. The We Choose Hope campaign has three phases and lots of ways you can help.
1. 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 remote learning program. A gift of $160 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 our “Heroes for Hope” frame and will be announced on social media.
2. Did you know that Community of Hope has not missed one regular food pantry distribution day during the pandemic? They have been blessed to be able to meet the growing need in our community but need your help to keep our shelves stocked. We are partnering with over 20 local businesses to collect food for our food pantry. Oct 1 -21st
3. We are Cash Mobbing COHM on Oct 21st!
For all the details check out their website. BE A HERO
