Ten years ago, Main Street Church began its Christmas Hope Campaign. In our first year, we raised just over $7000 to provide hampers and gifts for families. Since then, it has grown every year, providing us the opportunity to give away hundreds of thousands of dollars. This year our congregation gave $182,000 towards our campaign, which provided Christmas Hampers and gifts for 140+ families, and $130,000 to different non-profits and organizations in our community and around the world.
We look for opportunities to partner with the community throughout the year, and we found the Chilliwack Hospital Foundations Giving campaign. When we saw that you were raising funds for ECG machines, we thought it was a perfect way to give back. Our Christmas Hope campaign is about bringing hope to people’s hearts, and what better way than to give towards caring for the actual hearts of those in need. We hope this investment will help make the workload easier for our healthcare workers and bring healing to those who are hurting.
