We have been working with Santa to bring Children's Hope to all underprivileged children in the Hoffman area.
Anyone who lives in Hoffman and surrounding areas can register their child for a visit with Santa and to receive a gift for the holidays. Children (ages from 1 - 14) can be registered any Saturday from October 12th to December 12th during the hours of 2pm-4pm when the food pantry is open.
We are making progress with the Senior Center. Our handicap ramp is built, the walls are painted, minor repairs have been done, and we should be ready to start operating by January 1st, 2014. We will need volunteers to help us run our programs at the senior center. If you would like to donate your time or any items to help our center, please call 910-281-5957 and we will make arrangements for you to help.
When our center opens we will provide activities, meals, socializing and transportation to Dr. appointments, etc. Our small community is in need of a place for our seniors to gather and get help with their daily activities as well as socialization. We plan to meet the needs of our elderly to make their lives a little easier. With your help we can accomplish our goals.
Our top priority now is to find a mini bus for transporting our seniors. We need one that seats 12 people + space for 2 wheelchairs. If anyone know where we might acquire such a vehicle, please notify us at once.
If you or anyone you know would like to volunteer to help, please contact Sandy Marsh at: (910) 281-5957 or email email@example.com to sign up.
07/06/2013 - SENIOR CENTER TO OPEN SOON! We were hoping to have our senior center open by now, however, we are still making improvements to our building so it will be a nice place for our seniors to visit. We intend to make the center a happy place for our seniors to come to enjoy themselves and each other and to have something to look forward to each day.
12/24/2012 - ANOTHER FAMILY GETS CHRISTMAS!! We found another family in our community who was in need of help for the holidays. There were six children in the household from ages 5-12. We were able to supply this family with a holiday dinner, toys and clothes for all the children, and even something for mom. What a joy to see their faces as we passed out their gifts. This is what giving is all about.
10/06/2012 - SOUTHERN MISSION FUN FAIR. We had our first annual carnival fair in Hoffman and it was a huge success. The event was held to raise funds to make repairs to our future Senior Center. We raised enough funds to have the electrical repairs done. Thank you all for supporting our event and our Senior Center.
04/20/2012 - WELLS FARGO DONATES PROPERTY TO SMM. We received a donation of 1 acre of land and a manufactured home in which we plan to locate our new Senior Center. Thank you Wells Fargo for helping our community!
