Keep Hope Alive This Summer with the SOS Summer Passport!
It's safe to say that 2020 has not gone as planned... We've all had to face challenges that have tested our patience as well as our faith. Though businesses are starting to reopen, many of us will continue to take necessary precautions as we're out and about. And even though your summer plans may have changed, one thing remains the same: together we can help keep hope alive in our community!
Introducing the SOS Summer Passport! It's a downloadable family passport that provides an easy and safe way to get out of the house and tangibly help those in need. The SOS Summer Passport includes a group of ministries and nonprofits who have been on the front-lines of serving in the community. Each weekend this summer, you're invited to donate much-needed items to help refill the tank for these organizations. Simply STOP by, POP your trunk, and DROP off your donation! You won't even have to get out of your car!
While you're rolling through, we'll give you a stamp on your SOS Summer Passport and other SOS goodies if you'd like them. Once your SOS Summer Passport is filled, you'll be eligible to enter to win a special grand prize on our website! Thank you for helping to Keep Hope Alive this summer!
