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!
I 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!
