Attention Shoppers: Toys Needed for the Oasis Toy Store!

November 25, 2012

Help parents in need provide Christmas for their families – donate to the Oasis annual toy store!

This outreach empowers under-resourced families to buy their own presents and offers dignity along with grace.

What a great way to celebrate the season!

Drop off any new, unwrapped toys from the following wish list now through December 9th at Hope Church. Drop boxes are located in the North, South and Main Foyers.

Gifts Needed for Boys and Girls:

Toddlers:
– Learning Toys
– Dora the Explorer
– Books
– Mega Blocks

Kids:
– Action Figures
– Lego Sets
– Jigsaw Puzzles
– Board Games
– Sports Balls

Teens:
– MP3 Players
– Itunes Gift Cards
– Board Games
– AA Batteries

Or, if you’d rather, we’ll shop for you! Make checks payable to ‘Oasis of Hope’ (write ‘Toy Store’ in the memo) or donate online. For volunteer opportunities, contact Tom Capon.

Also … something you may not realize, is that we hire local adults to run and manage the Toy Store, which provides job experience and connections between our Hope Volunteers and families who live in North Memphis!

Educating Young Women About Sex & Pregnancy

June 07, 2012

We recently hosted a conversation titled ‘How Sex & Pregnancy Affect Our Bodies’ with expert doctors Julie Ware and Clarice Mullinax and RN Kathleen MacDonald who addressed 14 of our Oasis young women in a private, Biblical and educational format that was incredible! We hope to make this an annual event for our high school girls. Many thanks to our medical volunteers and their expertise!
