Operation HOPE and Breedlove Foods, Inc., a Lubbock-based humanitarian relief organization, announce today a collaboration to provide critical food aid for Hurricane Matthew victims in Haiti. We are joining forces in an immediate effort to raise funds to send a 20-foot container including 450,000 servings of Breedlove’s fortified food blends to the Saint-Marc area.
In September, Operation H.O.P.E. will be partnering with Breedlove Foods to build tiny houses for Paul’s Project Grace Campus. We are so excited to be a part of helping Paul’s Project which provides temporary shelter for the local homeless.
Each year, Operation HOPE holds an event to update all of our supporters on the progress being made in Haiti, Iraq, and right here in the US, and to provide them with even more opportunities to invest in these wonderful people. In years past, speakers have included our founder Dr. John Thomas, Pittsburgh Steeler Baron Batch, Former Atlanta Braves Pitcher John Smoltz, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Actor/Director/Producer Kirk Cameron, Dr. Ben Carson, and most recently, Tim Brown. Below are the details for this year's event.
Operation HOPE's 5th Annual F.A.M.I.N.E. Banquet was held on July 9th at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center with more than 550 guests in attendance. After months of preparation by such an incredible group of volunteers, we are happy to say that this was certainly our biggest and most successful event to date. Thanks to the generous donations from businesses and individuals from across the Lubbock area, we were able to auction off a incredible collection of art, services, and products all to help the work we are currently doing in Haiti and Iraq.
We would like to thank all of you who attended this event for coming out and making it such a fantastic evening! It's not every day that Lubbock has the opportunity to hear such a fantastic artist and we were honored to be a part of making it happen.
We would also like to say a special thanks to Mark Umstot for photographing this event and helping us capture such an exiting evening. Click the image below to view the Mark's photos, and make sure to visit his website.
Operation HOPE would like to send out a huge thank-you to all who were involved in this year's Operation HOPE Golf Tournament on Monday, Sept 22nd! We had a great time out on the course and were able to give away some great raffle prizes afterwards. This year we raised over $5,000! This has been one of our best golf tournaments so far and we can't wait to see everybody out on the Rawls Course next year.
Although Operation HOPE has taken a number of trips internationally, We've just recently begun to partner with people and ministries right here in the US. After months of praying and waiting for God to present an opportunity for us, our founder Dr.
Although Operation HOPE has a number of our own projects and initiatives designed to help others in need, we also love to partner with other groups and individuals, both locally and internationally, to help make a difference. A couple of months ago, we received an email from a young lady named Renee Ramirez who was preparing a trip to Cambodia to work with the She Rescue Home there. She asked if we would be able to donate any supplies for her to give to the ladies at She Rescue and we were very grateful for the opportunity to help out.
