Ways You Can Help

Hope House Mission: Help supply dinner items for the men and women's shelters at Hope House Mission each Wednesday. Items are delivered to the front porch of the HHM Hope Partnership Champions, who take care of delivering the meal to Hope House. You can sign up now to help on the last two Wednesdays in May. If you would like to participate, click here to view the spots available.

City Gospel Mission: If you would like to donate magazines to help keep the 37 men sheltered at the Clarion Hotel occupied, there is a drop off bin located outside the Hope Church Fellowship Hall entrance under the overhang.

Central Parke Alzheimer's Special Care Center: If you would like to send a card, note, or picture to be shared with a resident or employee, you can mail them to Central Parke Alzheimer's Special Care Center, c/o Penny Coffey, 7495 Central Parke Blvd., Mason, OH 45040.

Council on Aging: There are two opportunities to assist with providing care for seniors in our region in need:

  • Option 1—Personal Care Items for Seniors
    •    The Council on Aging has partnered with FilltheTruck.org to collect items to be distributed to seniors in our region in need. Seniors will be given a four-pack of toilet paper and household and personal items to help them through the crisis. Consider adding a friendly note or having your child(ren) color a picture that can be included in the boxes they deliver to seniors. Donations will be accepted through April 30, 2020. Needed items include toilet paper (four-pack, preferred—no single or unwrapped rolls), hand sanitizer, bar soap, liquid soap, antibacterial wipes, denture care items, toothpaste, Lysol spray, dish detergent, laundry detergent, tissues, and cat and dog food. Items must be unused and in unopened packages. No food items, please.
    •    Drop off items at Lakota Hills Baptist Church (6300 Tylersville Rd., West Chester, OH 45069) on Mondays and Fridays, 9:00 AM–noon and 1:00–3:00 PM. 
  • Option 2—Volunteer as a Delivery Driver in Warren County with the Council on Aging
    •    The Council on Aging will provide you with a list of names, addresses and phone numbers to make contact with the senior.
    •    You contact the senior and inform them you will be delivering personal supplies on a day and time based on your availability
    •    You drop off the personal supplies at the doorstep. It is not recommended you go into the home or shake hands to the person you are delivering.
    •    You inform me that you have dropped off the supplies or inform me what you were unable to drop off.
    •    They can also supply you with masks and gloves to ensure your safety.
    •    To volunteer as a driver, contact Jacqueline Hutsell at jhutsell@help4seniors.org or call 513.345.8616 (direct) or 513.623.3891 (cell).
