HOY Has Its Stars and Blessings-YOU

It takes the on-going service of lots of people working together who hear and respond to God’s invitation-- “Come Help My Poor”. People takes many forms--individuals, churches, schools, corporations, small businesses, super markets, restaurants, philanthropic groups, clubs, etc. Because of you people HOY last year provided 94,829 persons with food, clothing and shelter through our different programs. Demand for these basic necessities has grown by 34% this past year.

Where Your Money Goes
Second Beginnings -- THE NOW! 2014...
The on-going miracle of HOY is that we depend totally upon donations to keep us going, enabling us to serve the “dear neighbor”-- and the donations keep coming. A humble “Ask” is necessary to let you know our needs and how you can help. We need cash donations. Gifts in Kind donations have increased. HOY receives thousands of dollars worth of gifts in kind (merchandise) Monday through Saturday from supermarkets, restaurants and retail businesses in the local area. We run our two Thrift Shops almost totally with slightly used items.
Cash donations are down substantially. We need cash to process and activate the gifts in kind we receive. If you are not presently donating would you consider becoming a donor?
The driving force that makes the House of Yahweh successful is LOVE.
One act of kindness done out of love is eternal.
Without love -- acts, no matter how good, are just that – acts.
Thank you for supporting HOY with your loving acts of kindness these past 32 years!
