What an honor to continue this project! This is “round two” of the Red Flag Project (check out “round one” here). Throughout the quarantine Project Hope volunteers have passed out bags of food to over 500 families. Thank you for praying for and giving to families in need!
This time, volunteers were not able to use the Project Hope House to organize and assemble the food bags. So Juan, one of our Prado North Community Center kids, volunteered to give up his bedroom! If you’ve met Juan, this probably doesn’t surprise you. Juan — and his amazing family — are some of the kindest and most generous people we’ve had the privilege of working with.
Volunteers worked hard to shop for such a large amount of food, assemble it into bags, and make a plan to deliver it all.
They traveled to a foundation that works with kids who have various disabilities. Families send their children to this organization during the day to get help with school. Most of these families cannot afford to send their children to school, so the foundation works with them to ensure their children receive an education. Each child received a bag of food to take home to their families.
This video really melted our hearts! You don’t even need to understand it to feel the joy!
They also traveled to other parts of the city to pass out food bags to people in need.
Everyone was extremely thankful for the food, and asked the volunteers to pass along their gratitude to the people that made it possible.
