What We Do
Hope for the Homestead is dedicated to providing Christmas for LOCAL families and children in need. We only collect and distribute to Lynchburg and the surrounding counties! While we must always be mindful of the world outside our borders, we must also remember to be mindful of those in need right outside our doors.
How We Work
H4TH asks local families, businesses, churches, and organizations to pack a Christmas package for a local needy child or family. A list of ideas and packing instructions are located on our brochure which can be downloaded by clicking on the menu option “2013 brochure.”
Why We Are Different
Since H4TH only collects and distributes locally, we are not limited by a child’s age, the size of the Christmas package, or shipping regulations. We are able to allow items such as large packages, perishable items, and hygiene products which would otherwise not be able to be shipped or stored. H4TH Christmas packages are also able to be filled with unique and locally-supported gifts.
We are particularly fond of our family boxes! You don’t have to choose one particular age group; a whole family can be supported through your kindness! Last year, we saw fantastic items come in these packages like gift cards to local restaurants, games, movies, dinnerware, and even small appliances.
