We are so excited about Operation Holiday Hope 2020!
For the 250,000 kids we minister to all over the world each week, thecoronavirus pandemic has multiplied the problems they face every day growing up in persistent poverty, broken families, abuse, and neglect. It’s not an understatement to say that more hope than ever is needed this year.
In Kenya, Romania, the Philippines, and our other international bases, our teams are modifying and adapting this outreach to work within local guidelines to bring Operation Holiday Hope to as many kids as possible. Sharing the message of Jesus’ birth and providing gifts and food are their main focus in the weeks and days leading up to Christmas.
In New York City, we typically celebrate with close to 30,000 kids through this outreach.
But we are doubling our efforts this year to reach 60,000 children through small outreaches and socially-distanced gatherings all over the city.
Families have been severely impacted by joblessness due to COVID19, making the need here greater than ever.
Every child will hear the message of God’s love and receive a wrapped Christmas present as a tangible reminder of that love. Since masks are still required in New York, we have partnered with a local group to provide reusable masks for the kids as well.
Thank you, in advance, for partnering with us in this biggest outreach of the year. We absolutely need your help to make this happen and deeply appreciate your continued partnership through this year of unprecedented challenges!
Nothing will stop the message of God’s love. Jesus is our Hope, no matter what!
