Toy Store Pop-Up Shop Was So Much Fun! Thank You!

November 30, 2016

fav13-web800Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016 was an amazing day!

Oasis of Hope partnered with Hope City Church & Hope Church to host the annual Oasis Toy Store as a One Day Pop-up Toy Store due to a fire earlier in the year at the Oasis Appliance & Furnishings store where we normally house the toys over a two-week period. On this one day alone we were able to host approximately 150 families with approximately 5 children per family, impacting around 700 children ranging in ages from 2 months to 16 years of age!

Not too shabby for ONE day! God is Amazing!

fav4-web800I would like to extend a sincere heartfelt THANK YOU from myself and Oasis of Hope first to our “elves”… ALL OF YOU from Hope City Church and Hope Church who donated toys or volunteered your time! We could not have done any of it without you helping to setup, price toys, help families with their packages, etc. Pastor Colley Cooper…you are a true gem! Hope Church congregation….THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! Without all of your wonderful donations this toy store could not be this successful! What YOU donated is appreciated not only by Oasis but also by the North Memphis families whom we desire to support in providing a memorable and affordable Christmas for their children.

I personally want to thank you all again & look forward to the 2017 Toy Store and the joy & blessings it provides during the Christmas season to so many. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

– Toy Store Director, Melissa Orr

Oasis Appliance and Home is Back in Business! Stop by!

November 01, 2016

oasis--used-appliances-100xWow a fire is painful!

On August 28, 2016 we learned just how hard it would be to walk through the process of filing insurance claims, negotiating with our landowner about new options, keeping our employees paid while they worked through the ashes, and ultimately having to shop for new temporary and permanent locations.

Therefore, in order to be open and to be able to sell all these wonderful appliances and furniture items people have continued to donate during this challenging season (thank you donors!), we are thrilled to announce we are now open temporarily at the following location:

Northgate Shopping Center, 3154 Thomas Street, Suite 2, Frayser, TN 38127
Store Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm
Phone: 901/577-0013

We have four needs from you:

SHOP! We have lots of stock that has been waiting to be put on display! Come out and see what we’ve got!

2013 11 new arrivals web300 (14)DONATE! Please continue to send us your donated appliances, furniture, and decor, just in time to stock the showroom for our busiest season: December-February!

SPREAD THE WORD! Help us alert North Memphis, Frayser and beyond to our new, temporary location. Nothing is as valuable as a personal recommendation! Please tell your friends, family and neighbors through word-of-mouth or on social media (Follow us on Facebook).

PRAY! Please also be praying for direction as we continue to seek a permanent space in North Memphis to fulfill this practical need within our ministry neighborhood.
