Have you seen our new cab signs? If you haven’t, be on the lookout, because they’re your invitation to participate in a Summer of Hope. With the help of our buddies at Yellow Cab, Hope Floats all around the city, day and night, bringing the message that helping the homeless during these dog days of summer is as easy as texting “SOH” to 20222. It’s that simple, and Star of Hope receives an immediate gift of $10.00 toward the care of our brothers and sisters who are down, for sure, but not out.
I know you have heard it before, but it’s true: summer in Houston is the most dangerous time of year for the homeless, and it’s also the season when help for the homeless is at its lowest. However, if there is one thing we are certain of at Star of Hope, it’s that those we serve are not forsaken, even when donations are low and hands are few. God has brought them to us to dwell in our shelters for a while, find relief from their struggles, protection from the elements and direction for their lives.
From my perspective, that’s a win-win for everyone. So not only am I privileged to be a part of this amazing plan set forth by the Lord and executed by the fabulous client staff here, I am included in the invitation to the Summer of Hope. So here goes. I’m going to let my fingers do the talking and donate $10 by texting “SOH” to 20222. Will you join me? But text safely.
