Holidays of Hope 2021

  • Show others the power of community


It is after much deliberation and with a heavy heart that we announce our Holidays of Hope Gala has been canceled. With the up-rise in COVID-19 cases in Michigan, we felt it was the safer choice to cancel our in person event. We were so looking forward to seeing all of you face to face, and celebrating the change you make possible every single day. Our continuing battle with COVID-19 has taken such a deeply personal toll on us all. Especially for our friends and neighbors who have lost loved ones to this virus. Through it all, you have not lost hope, and you certainly have not backed down from helping those who need it most. This pandemic has only strengthened your efforts to care for your neighbors. We are eternally grateful for you and your kindness. While we will not be seeing you this weekend like we planned, we will most definitely be keeping you and your family in our prayers. We are so grateful for your friendship and support, and look forward to any time we get to spend with you. We hope to plan a new event to see all of you this spring in addition to our Holidays of Hope Gala 2022.

The last year and a half has been like nothing we have ever experienced in our 125 years of service. Our lives were turned upside down and still have yet to truly settle. We have days that are better than others, but some days it feels like this uncertainty will never end.

It is just as difficult, if not more so, for homeless veterans. Our heroes are sleeping out on the streets; under bridges, in abandoned cars, or even in empty garages. Many are left wandering the streets looking for help and don’t know where to go. They are hungry and have no idea where they will find their next meal.

Poor seniors are missing their friends and family. Community looks and feels so different these days. Stuck inside, it is risky to even go grocery shopping at the local market. They are lonely and are beginning to lose hope.

Parents have lost their jobs, and were already struggling to put food on the table for their children. Christmas is a distant thought, with no idea how they will be able to get their children any gifts.

At Holidays of Hope, you have the chance to show Michigan’s most vulnerable they are not alone.

Your community needs you.

Your continued support helps seniors like Carol

“I had nobody. All my life I felt like I had to settle for less. I felt like I wasn’t good enough. Hiding behind a smile.

I asked God, why did you have to take my eyesight? I guess things happen for a reason. Before I came here I had nothing. I was in a house with no lights, no gas, no food. I was trying to make ends meet.

After I came here Shirley helped me get food. She helps all of us as much as she can. I am really thankful for this place.

I feel safe here.”
