Match Madness (03/03/20)

March 3 @ 8:00 am - March 31 @ 5:00 pm

According to Census data, approximately 28% of children in Carlisle live below the federal poverty line, which, sadly, is worse than the national rate. At Hope Station, we fight against the effects this poverty has on our community. We envision a safe, thriving, and culturally vibrant Carlisle, and, we know this vision is achievable.

For the board, staff, and volunteers at Hope Station, we see hope every day in our community. Sometimes hope comes through providing material support such as a blanket, a coat, or a meal to someone in need. However, most of the time, hope comes through those things that you and I take for granted.

Tony came to Hope Station as a troubled teen needing to complete community service. Once he began, he discovered that he liked giving back and decided to continue after he fulfilled his obligation along with a friend and a cousin. Now he volunteers and has established a great relationship with the staff. If he is struggling with school or staying out of trouble, he asks for help and listens.

I am asking you to give hope by supporting Hope Station with a gift of $25, $50, $100 or more. If you take this opportunity to make a financial contribution now, it will go even further. Thanks to the Partnership for Better Health and M&T Bank, all contributions made in March will be matched! No matter what your giving level is, every gift, large or small, will make a difference for those in Carlisle needing a helping hand – be it a coat, a meal, a voice, or a friend.

You can participate by mail or online. If you wish to send a check, you can make it payable to “Partnership for Better Health” and write HOPE STATION in the memo line. You can then send the check to:

Partnership for Better Health,
Attn: Ann Myers
274 Wilson Street
Carlisle, PA 17013

If you wish to make an online contribute, please do so here, and be sure to select HOPE STATION where it states “Choose your organization.”

The partnership for Better Health will receive no revenue from the match campaign and will pass 100% of your charitable contribution directly on to Hope Station.

Help strengthen the Carlisle community by supporting Hope Station today.
