Hope 4 Appalachia 2021

Hope for Appalachia Hope Box and Prom Dress Collection!

Friday, March 5, through Friday, March 26.

Once again WPER is collecting formal dresses and hope boxes for the Hope for Appalachia Virginia Team’s annual trip to Kentucky. Each box collected, each dress donated, is an opportunity for a child to hear that Jesus loves them. Hope For Appalachia Teams visit public schools in some of the most impoverished areas of our country. Many kids lack access to basic necessities like food, socks, shoes, and even toothbrushes. Many are in foster care or live with grandparents, others have been impacted by family drug addiction or subjected to extreme neglect and abuse. Many middle school and high school girls would love to attend school dances but can’t afford or don’t have access to purchase formal dresses. By meeting these two needs in the community the Hope for Appalachia Teams are able to teach each child about the love of Christ.

This year the WPER family has been issued a challenge, to create and collect 4,000 additional COMPLETE hope boxes to send to kids in Kentucky. We’re also hoping to collect 2,000 prom dresses to deliver to schools and churches for formal dances held throughout the school year, including prom.

Each box, each dress is an opportunity. It opens the door to share the gospel message with hope-starved school aged kids in public schools from Pre-K all the way through 12th grade through a special assembly that teaches each child the gospel message and gives them the opportunity to give their lives to Christ.

Help us bring the light of Jesus into this dark community.
