Hello Everyone!

We hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend! First and foremost, we would like to thank everyone who has donated to this fundraiser! Between GoFundMe, our website, and mailed checks we have raised over $70,000 and counting!!!

Please note we will be ending the Sutherland Springs GoFundMe page today. You can still make donations through our website https://thehopeheroes.org or directly to the donation page https://hhfrf.givingfuel.com/sstxvf

We have direct communication with the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs for victim dispersement assistance. Both groups have completed all fundraising we start the disbursement process. when that time comes you will definitely be informed!

As the season of giving starts we encourage everyone to remeber those who are without this year. This November 28th is Giving Tuesday, a international day of giving. Whether you give time, services, or funds we want to encourage you to still give. Hope Heroes NFP, is running our Giving Tuesday to raise funds for the Puerto Rico Rebuild Project.

Puerto Rico is still in a state of emergency. People are dying daily, most still do not have power! We implore you to donate this Tuesday for our fellow Americans here to help: https://hhfrf.givingfuel.com/givingtuesdaypr

Again on behalf of the Sutherland Springs Victims we thank you for all your support and wish you and your families a happy holidays this year!

Warm regards,

Ryan Gergen, President
