Perks to Pray and Play: Mihelic’s Shop ‘n Save

10 April

Perks to Pray and Play is a rebate program available at the four Mihelic Shop ‘n Save locations where they allow customers to Register your existing Perks card under Hosanna Industries. As you shop, they track your purchases by your Shop ‘n Save card. Then they give 2% of qualified purchases in gift cards to Hosanna Industries.

Example: If you register your Perks card with this program & spend $500 a month on groceries at any of the four Mihelic Shop ‘n Save stores, $10 a month in gift cards will be donated to Hosanna Industries from Shop ‘n Save.

This program doesn’t affect your regular gas perks that you get & it doesn’t cost anything.  The more people that choose Hosanna Industries as their Perks to Pray and Play recipient & shop at one of the four Mihelic Shop ‘n Save locations, the more gift cards will be gifted to the mission.

Hosanna Industries Raising $1.5 Million for West Virginia Flood Relief

Hosanna Industries is planning multiple trips to the Richwood community of Nicholas County, West Virginia.  Plans include building 15 new homes for impoverished households that lost their homes to the flood, repairing 30 homes with new drywall, electrical, insulation, etc., providing 30 furnaces and 50 hot water tanks, as well as other household appliances, miscellaneous household items and tools.  Hosanna plans to refurbish an industrial building in the community for housing volunteers, storing materials, feeding people, etc.  Total costs are around $1.5 million, all of which will be provided through donations.

Richwood, WV has a poverty rate of 46%, according to the Nicholas County Community Foundation, and many are recently unemployed due to the coal mining operations being shut down.

HOSANNA INDUSTRIES PLANNING WEST VIRGINIA RELIEF

Charity fundraising and organizing to rebuild for impoverished households after recent flooding

 

Hosanna Industries is exploring opportunities to help relieve the horrible suffering that has resulted from the catastrophic flooding last week in West Virginia.  The mission is currently investigating possibilities and developing key relationships with local people of faith who are influential in their communities.  We will shortly be sending ambassadors to the area to identify particular needs.

Current needs:

  1. Please uphold the mission in prayer as Hosanna Industries discerns the directions we believe the Lord is leading, and please remember all of the people in the Southeastern WV region who have suffered so gravely.
  2. Donate online towards Hosanna Industries’  future work in West Virginia mail a check to 109 Rinard Lane, Rochester, PA 15074.  Mark gifts “West Virginia,” and all gifts received will go toward rebuilding efforts there.
  3. Contact Hosanna Industries (724-770-0262) if you know of anyone who was underinsured or living in poverty and was affected by the recent flooding in West Virginia.

Hosanna Industries travels to areas of disaster to help with the mobilizing of large groups of volunteers to build and repair homes damaged by tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding, or other catastrophic events to bring hope and restoration to hurting individuals and communities.  In 2005, we assisted over 500 households with rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Ivan flooded parts of the Pittsburgh region.  Hosanna Industries has done work after multiple disasters, including Hurricanes Andrew, Floyd and Katrina, among others.

About Hosanna Industries: Hosanna Industries was founded in 1990 as a faith-rooted, non-profit mission whose work involves a variety of charitable initiatives aimed at helping our impoverished neighbors.  By the grace of God and through the mechanical and aesthetic arts, mission workers at Hosanna Industries build and repair homes for needy households; teach and lead classes and workshops in art, nature and spirituality; and train young people in construction skills.  Its typical single client household last year had an income of less than $20,000 a year. Since its founding in 1990 Hosanna Industries has provided around $52 million worth of charitable work to the community for around $15 million.  It depends on the generosity of others to complete its work.

Holy Week Blitz Build 2016

12 March

BLITZ BUILD PROVIDES NEW HOME

Hosanna Industries to construct house in four days

What: Alexa and Jim, in Sandy Lake, Mercer County, will have a brand new home that is handicap accessible, where their trailer with rotting floors once stood. Due to Alexa’s health conditions, she will soon be wheelchair-bound and unable to navigate in their trailer. Hosanna Industries intends to build their home as a “blitz build”.

How: Hosanna Industries’ “blitz builds” are made possible with volunteer labor, donated and discounted materials and a uniquely organized building method which compresses the length of construction to four days. The house will be built and move-in ready; complete with furniture and appliances by the fourth day.

When: Foundation will be laid and walls will be built by Hosanna Industries staff and volunteers prior to the blitz week. Work will begin at 8am on Monday, March 21, Holy Week, and the house will be complete by Maundy Thursday, March 24. On Thursday, March 24 at 2pm, Hosanna will host a dedication of the home which is open to the public.

Who: Hosanna Industries’ staff of nine will lead the build, and approximately 60 volunteers from Illinois and Virginia who were previously scheduled with Hosanna, will assist all week. The First Presbyterian Church of Bakerstown will also assist, as well as Mars National Bank.

Current needs:

  • Nearly $10,000 is still needed. Donate online or mail a check to “blitz build” 109 Rinard Lane, Rochester, PA 15074
  • Discounted or donated building materials

Rev. Dr. Donn Ed, founder and executive director of Hosanna Industries, said, “We are grateful for this Holy Week opportunity to provide new hope for another needy family in the name of the Carpenter of Nazareth who provided new hope for the whole world because of the events of the first Holy Week that happened 2000 years ago.”
