Christmas parties, home decorating and holiday baking are all the fun festivities for the season but nothing compares to the happy moment where a child unwraps a present on Christmas morning with their brand new toy inside. Some children will not get this moment.
Across the globe, countless children will spend Christmas without getting even one present! Several Hopers visited Haiti and Zimbabwe, along with a few other Caribbean countries and witnessed the children using empty plastic bottles and the objects we typically throw in the recycling bins as their only toys.
LAST CHANCE FOR HAPPINESS!
Giving any one of these children their very first toy would make me happy this Christmas! HopeNYC has a Toy Drive each year and everyone gets the opportunity to give! This Sunday is THE LAST CHANCE to give as the drive ends!!! If interested, you can give in-person or on the HopeNYC app! This year, the toys will be going to Zimbabwe, Trinidad, Guyana and Jamaica! This is how to make a happier Christmas…for them!
You be Happy Too!

I have taken a healthier approach this semester and decided to join two health and wellness hope groups! From the short time I’ve been there, its been totally eye-opening, exciting, interesting and informative! One is taught by an actual physician and the other is taught by a phenomenal woman who has conquered the most challenging weight-loss obstacles many women face today! All the facilitators are highly skilled and passionate about what they teach! At the end of every semester, The Hope Groups ministry has always asked this question: What classes do you want to see next semester? My readers, What do you want to learn?
You would hear the mechanical melody of drilling, pounding and jigsawing to the sounds of Christmas music if you took a walk inside HopeNYC. Hopers are prepping and constructing daily in the warehouse to build the most spectacular unthinkable parade floats! These floats will beautifully stroll down the streets of Rockaway blvd in lights and tell the true meaning of Christmas! You may also see familiar favorite characters and Christmas traditions.
Come be part of the celebration at HopeNYC’s 2017 Christmas Parade on Sunday December 3rd at 5pm!The route starts on 130th street Rockaway blvd and ends at HopeNYC with extra festivities! You have early notice so come get a good view and some great pictures!
I got a box of kisses 😘 after an incredible service at HopeNYC!
In fact! The box was all over the building! Hope Kidz ministry gave a 🍫sweet gift back for supporting! They’re going to do great things this year! If you have or know any kids, visit Hope Kidz on Sunday morning! This is the most exciting children’s ministry I’ve ever seen! The teachers are loving and caring. I often see kids doing fun arts and crafts. They sit at the tables excited with their bibles. I’ve seen them over the years growing as they learn more about The Lord and His Word. I’ve even seen cool prizes being given out! HopeNYC services are on Sunday mornings at 10:30am.
