Gift of Hope


Bell Shoals
wants to share the GIFT OF HOPE found in Jesus Christ
with our community this holiday season.

For many families, Christmas is a joyous holiday looked forward to with excitement and anticipation. There is something very special about seeing a child’s face, full of smiles and wonder, as they tear open their gifts.  But sadly, for some families in our community who are walking through difficult economic times that are not the case.

Seeking to help meet that need, Brandon’s GIFT OF HOPE a partnership of more than 10 churches and ECHO – the Emergency Care Help Organization, is seeking to reach out to over 800 families in the Greater Brandon area by providing them with toys for their children to enjoy at Christmas.

You can become a part of this wonderful Christmas outreach and brighten a child’s life by donating a Christmas toy. Bell Shoals is collecting toys for children ages 8 -12.

Opportunities to Volunteer

There are opportunities for you to get involved at this year’s GIFT OF HOPE. You can serve at the Gift of Hope collection tent or during the Gift of Hope food distribution. There are a number of volunteer jobs available. You can work in the Kids Zone, help check people in, serve in the Hospitality Room or the Prayer Chapel. Click here to volunteer.

It is our prayer that from the moment guests arrive at GIFT OF HOPE until they leave they will experience the love and hope of Christ through each individual they meet.

What makes the GIFT OF HOPE outreach truly special though, is the personal time that is spent with each individual, praying with them and seeking to share the hope that is only found in knowing Christ personally.

Thank you for partnering with Bell Shoals to share the GIFT OF HOPE
found in Jesus Christ with our community.
