We love sharing all the creative ways that our donors give to Oliver Gospel.
This past July, one of our long-time donors, Amy, collected dozens of household items, hygiene products, and toys for the men, women, and children in our programs.
How she got all these items is simple: She set up a Christmas tree in her home, sent a needs list to her friends, and invited them over for a party. That’s it! She called it “Christmas in July”.
Amy and her friends were able to meet specific needs at Oliver Gospel. The items she dropped off at our mission went straight into the arms of residents who needed them.
Not only that, but she rallied her community. She gave each of her friends the opportunity to make an impact, simply by hosting a party. By spreading the word to people in her circles, Amy furthered the impact on the lives of those experiencing homelessness.
