Hopematch came to me as a great blessing about seven years ago when I found myself as a single parent, raising my children from check to check. I was nominated for Hope matches Christmas blessing and from there I have been a partner with them ever since. I have been able to give back and volunteer my time to serve others. I have then able to attend monthly empowerment sessions, where everyone is treated with the same respect and dignity. My children are also going to be able to volunteer this year and help me deliver school supplies to other families! Hope match has so many wonderful program including Christmas, pop-up shop, back-to-school bash, and birthday parties!

Our Family was blessed a few years ago. I was completely unaware and didn’t think my circumstances were of any importance but HopeMatch met my families needs and made me realize that God does care. Every single detail from the packaging of the gifts, with beautiful detail, to the choosing of the Christmas Tree, the sound of laughter, the visions of smiles across the faces, was beyond more than I could ask, I can’t get enough of HopeMatch and volunteer when I can. My daughter too loves the opportunity and has become part of the Junior Ambassador program. I love that you are not just a number, but a friend. And everyone at HopeMatch is so precious, I am eternally grateful for all the work they are doing for the community and I give God all the glory! I am happy to serve as a willing and loyal volunteer for HopeMatch!

My family was blessed with Hopematch about 7 years ago. I remember them being so personal with our needs and our wants. As parents our focus was on our children receiving, with Hopematch their focus was our family. The entire family, including Christmas gifts for dad and I. I will never forget how they made my family feel that Christmas so long ago. They made us feel cared for and not just a number.
Since being nominated, my entire family has volunteered with Hopematch. We find so much enjoyment in making families feel hopeful. Letting families know that they are not alone and that someone cares. In the past I have volunteered with lots of different organizations. Never have I met a group like Hopematch. I love everything they stand for. The director is a get involved, hands on kind of special girlie. She is right there alongside us volunteers from start to finish. Although it’s true Hopematch is an organization, I see it as so much more. We are family, bringing in more families. My greatest desire is that Hopematch will always continue to prosper because their desire is to serve. Serving is what we as people were created to do. Wanna be blessed? Then serve. Need someplace to serve, choose Hopematch! I chose 5 stars only because it didn’t give me a 10 star option ❤️.
