Change Matters, January – March 2016
Can you help us? Please consider placing one of our small trucks and containers on the counter at your business, to collect spare change. We would like to place more than 30 of these trucks at various local businesses for two months for the purpose of charitable donations to Hosanna Industries. If each business collects at least $100, then we could fully fund a project for a needy household in our area.
Hosanna Industries helps people like Lillian, who had not left her house in seven months because she did not have a wheelchair ramp. Thanks to Hosanna, she was able to leave her house unassisted to go to her dialysis appointments.
Hosanna Industries helps people like Rosemaria, a single mom with a severely mentally disabled and mute 18 year old son. The young man requires constant supervision and attention. She called Hosanna because she had no kitchen whatsoever at her home. She was washing her dishes in the bathroom sink upstairs and preparing meals in the microwave. She asked if we could possibly help her, and after five hours at her home, our mission workers and volunteers had installed a brand new kitchen for her and her son.
The change in your pocket could be the change from cold to sheltered. From scared to safe. From lost to a bright future. Your change could be someone’s hope. It could be someone’s new beginning. A chance for new friendships. Your change can be home. Encourage your customers to share their spare change to help people like Lillian and Rosemaria.
Hosanna Industries is a 501c3 nonprofit, founded in 1990.
