National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

This is a cut and paste from info passed around on one of my homeschool lists:

Will you help us get the word out? November 11-16 is
National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week and
we’re planning several activities to highlight our
clients and their needs. Please share the following
information with all of your friends and contacts.
Please feel free to forward this e-mail directly.


National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week
Activities:

November 11-16
Everyone is invited to join the Hope Center and the
UPS Stores throughout Lexington and Winchester to
deliver Hope in a Bag to the homeless citizens in our
community. It’s easy to participate:
Fill a bag with personal items for a man or woman and
include a personal note of encouragement. Label
whether the bag is for a male or female. Bring the bag
to any Lexington or Winchester UPS store and your bag
will be delivered to a homeless person in the
community. Suggested personal needs items include
travel-size toiletries and cold weather wear (soap,
shampoo, deodorant, disposable razors,
toothpaste/toothbrush, lotion, white socks, winter
hats, gloves and chapstick). This is a perfect project
for a school group, church group, civic organization
or family.

Tuesday, November 13
The Hope Center has partnered with Max & Erma’s
Restaurant to hold a fundraiser event on November 13
at their Hamburg location. Twenty percent of the sales
from any customer who purchases a meal at Max & Erma’s
at any time during that day, and presents a Hope
Center Fundraiser coupon, will go directly to the Hope
Center . Please plan to enjoy a meal at Max & Erma’s
in Hamburg on November 13, and benefit the Hope Center
at the same time! The coupon is attached. Please
forward it to all of your friends and contacts. You
can also download the coupon from www.hopectr.org or
call 252-7881, ext. 3008.
