VISION OF HOPE FUNDRAISING BREAKFAST
Each fall, HOPE’s supporters gather for a delicious breakfast and an informative and inspirational program. Attendees of the free event meet and mingle with HOPE’s board members, supporters, and clients, and learn about HOPE’s triumphs and obstacles over the past year. The community is asked to support HOPE and continue making Seminole County one of the best places to live in the nation.
9th annual christmas in the city
Every December, HOPE partners with our Interfaith Coalition to provide 350 local families with everything they need to celebrate the holiday season in the way that every family deserves. The community comes together to gift its neighbors in crisis with necessities and comforts such as shoes, socks, underwear, blankets, books, school supplies, jeans, toys or gift cards, ingredients and recipes for a Christmas dinner, and a professional family portraitt.

At HOPE’s 6th Annual Sham Rock N' Run 5K, five hundred Central Floridians will run, walk, skip, or hop through a 5K course in their St. Patty’s Day best, all to help HOPE continue on its mission of preventing and reducing homelessness in Central Florida. This family-friendly 5K promises to be full of Irish fun, with a costume contest.

Right before school starts each year, HOPE hosts the Back to School Bash, where 700 pre-registered children of families in crisis are able to pick out everything they need to start their school year “just like any other kid.” The day of the event, each child chooses a backpack, all school supplies they need, a pair of new shoes, a first day of school outfit, a set of toiletries, and receives a vision screening (if glasses are required, free glasses are provided within two weeks of event!).
Check back often for updates on these annual events as well as other outreach events throughout the year. All events are open to the public. Whether you’re donating your time and talents, or want to hold your own HOPE event, look forward to joining the HOPE family.
If you have an idea you’d like to discuss, want to host a fundraiser or event for HOPE, please contact Events@HopeHelps.org and someone will get back with you soon!
