Give Stuff

Bags of clothing. Boxes of food. A sofa or dining room table in good useable condition. Deodorant, razors and toothpaste.
All these things are valuable to the people we serve at Hope Ministries. Many struggle to survive from day to day, and some of the basic comforts many of us enjoy are difficult to afford.

Here are some of our ongoing needs you can help provide:

Food — which we use to serve three free meals every day of the year.

Personal items — like disposable razors, deodorant, new underwear, new socks, shampoo, etc., which help homeless men and women directly.

Clothing — which we can accept at our ENCORE Thrift Stores, Bethel Mission men’s emergency shelter and Door of Faith men’s long-term recovery center. Clothing is sold in our thrift stores, provided to our shelter guests and life recovery residents, and given away free through our King’s Closet program.

Household Items — which are accepted at our ENCORE Thrift Stores. Proceeds from the sale of these items go right into supporting our programs and services.

Our Current Ministry Supplies Needs page shares the specific items we need most at this time.
