In 2014, a group of passionate individuals came together to form what is known today as the Two Rivers Baptist Association Hope Center. Over the years, the organization has grown to be not only a food bank, but also a thrift store. The community has come together to support the organization and together they have helped feed thousands of people. However, with the rate of food insecurity at 17.2 percent in Tangipahoa Parish, they are always in need of donations.
Two Rivers Baptist Association Hope Center works to provide necessities such as food and clothing to individuals and families who are dealing with emergency cases including, but not limited to, house fires and homelessness. With the help of loyal staff, volunteers, and donors, the organization is able to assist approximately 6,300 people each year. “Everyone that works here is a volunteer,” said Assistant Director, Shirley Humphrey.
In partnership with WoodmenLife Louisiana Chapter 44, Two Rivers Baptist Association Hope Center needs to raise $5,000 through RedBasket.org to purchase food items to feed needy individuals in the community. With the rate of food insecurity on the rise, raising these funds would allow the organization to continue to feed as many hungry people in Tangipahoa Parish as possible. By making a tax-deductible donation, you can help Two Rivers Baptist Association Hope Center continue their mission of fighting hunger in Tangipahoa and St. Helen. Donate and share their story today!
This fundraiser is part of the Fighting Hunger Challenge. During the third quarter of 2017, WoodmenLife and RedBasket.org are partnering to support our National Community Focus of Fighting Hunger. WoodmenLife chapters are encouraging community hunger relief organizations to fundraise through RedBasket.org and raise money to purchase supplies and provide meals for their communities.
