Dear friends,

I’m writing because I want to share an exciting opportunity with you. Our ministry is partnering with ELCA World Hunger to raise funds for our work. With the spread of COVID-19 in the United States and around the world impacting how we address hunger in our communities, we need your support now more than ever. 

ELCA World Hunger is kickstarting our fundraiser with a $500 Daily Bread Matching Grant. With the help of friends and supporters like you, we can raise $500 or more to match the grant – but we only have two weeks to do it. Will you make a donation to ELCA World Hunger today to help us meet our goal?

This will help our ministry serve our neighbors and truly provide daily bread.

Please click the link below to visit our page and donate today. Every gift makes a difference.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Hope Lutheran Church




FRIENDSHIP LINE

“Our connection to others is what binds us to life.”
– Patrick Arbore

Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults. Call TOLL FREE: 1-800-971-0016
