Everyone has asked me, "What can I do for you?"
Here’s my answer: This one-time GoFundMe campaign will help. It's a way to give back to our community in memory of amazing Hope.
The funds from this campaign will be used two ways:
1. Support Hood River High School Volleyball ($2,500)*
2. Support Hood River CMA Church Women's Ministry ($2,500)*
We have already received $2,100 in offline donations. If there is extra giving, we'll figure that out as we go.
Hope truly loved volleyball and everything it involved: coaching, practicing, traveling, and building relationships. She believed that having supportive mentors, working hard, and healthy competition are characteristics of success.
Hood River Valley High School has a great volleyball program, and we’d like to gift them with warm-up uniforms in Hope’s name ($600.00). Beyond that, we want to support the team with travel costs, equipment, and program needs. Our goal here is $2,500.00.
HRAC Women’s Ministry
Without a doubt, Hope's primary passion was following God and building relationships. She especially loved friendships that grew up and around women’s ministry.
Hope sincerely wanted to hear your story, encourage you, and pray for you. She was always ready to take your problems, concerns, hopes, and dreams straight to God, asking Him to bring freedom from whatever was holding you down, to heal your hurts, and to flood your life with joy and purpose.
Hood River Alliance Women’s Ministry really cares about women, too, and Hope deeply loved everything about it. We’d like to gift 10 scholarships to the group’s annual retreat ($2,000) and provide additional funds for study materials ($500).
Soaring with Hope
Remembering and honoring the impact of Hope’s life by contributing to this memorial fund is a meaningful way you can help us carry on her legacy.
As you consider giving, please take a moment to pause and give thanks for the beautiful impact her life made on all of us.
In loving memory,
*Many thanks to the Hood River Christian Missionary Alliance Church for partnering with us so that your donations may be tax-deductible. The HRCMA will collect funds and then distribute to HRVHS Volleyball in Hope's name.
