“Yard Signs for HOPE”

With this pandemic going on in our world, we have been sad that we are unable to send our usual items of encouragement in forms of cards, crafts, blankets, art projects from students, hats and scarves to the cancer treatment facilities in Lawrence, Beaver and Butler Counties. We came up with a way to help bring HOPE and encouragement to patients at local treatment facilities by doing a project called “Yard Signs for HOPE!” Patients are unable to bring loved ones into the facilities with them due to COVID-19, so we want them to be filled with HOPE as they enter the building by seeing our signs of encouragement or looking out the windows while receiving treatment! NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE!!

HUGE THANK YOU to all the kids who created these signs for us. More are on the way and by the end of the week we will be getting them made into yard signs to bring to 7 different treatment centers!! What a blessing!

Even during these hard times, our foundation continues to receive so much support and many donations and we cannot thank everyone enough! Together we can be someone’s HOPE for tomorrow!

God Bless and stay healthy and safe!!

Shady Side Hospital Trip

What an amazing night we had on Wednesday as we traveled to Shady Side Hospital to spread some “Hope for the Holidays!” 20 volunteers from our foundation and the Ellwood City High School Club Hope traveled by bus to deliver 100 sock snowmen crafts, 100 stockings full of goodies, treats for the amazing nurses and staff, and 25 bags full of crossword puzzles, word searches, and other activities for long term care patients. It was such an inspirational night full of smiles, tears, Christmas Carols and so much HOPE! We are blessed to be a part of this wonderful event each year.

Very HUGE THANK YOU to The Eric Ryan Corporation for covering the cost of the bus we took for our trip. Their continued support is appreciated so much!

WISHING EVERYONE A HOLIDAY SEASON FILLED WITH SO MUCH LOVE, HEALTH AND HAPPINESS!!

Special THANK YOU to Ashely Smith from AM Studio for helping set up this event again this year and to all the hair donors and stylists or came to support our cause! It was another very fun night with so much support from our community and we are happy to be able to also donate the hair donations to help another non-profit organization, Children With Hairloss, which will use the hair we collected to give free wigs to children!

We look forward to seeing you all on August 24th at McDowell’s Inn in Koppel, PA for our 2nd Annual Guest Bartending Event! Last year we had an amazing turn out and we can’t wait for another night of fun behind the bar!

Celebrating 1 Year of Spreading HOPE as the Club HOPE Foundation!

 

We were so excited to be joined by some of our volunteers, supporters and patients/families we have helped in our first year as a foundation as we gathered at Sweet Caroline’s in Ellwood City on Wednesday, June 12th. We could not do all the we are doing without the generous support we have received and we were glad that so many could join in on our celebration. Excited to see all that our foundation will do in year 2 as we continue spreading HOPE and touching the lives of those who need it most! Thank you to all who have become a part of our Club Hope Foundation Family!

Summer is off to a GREAT start!

 

Our foundation was honored to be a part of the Ellwood City Memorial Day Parade! This event is always so touching and we were happy to participate to spread some HOPE in Ellwood City, while also honoring Cara’s Pap for his military service.

 

 

On June 8th our foundation worked with the amazing Suzy and Rick Plassmeyer at the Beaver Falls Car Cruise, selling Pappy Rick’s Kettle Corn and these amazing baked goods donated by many local bakeries in Ellwood City and generous bakers who donated to our foundation’s booth. We were so happy to get involved in an activity that would allow us to inform Beaver County of all we are doing to spread HOPE in our area!

 

 

Cara was joined by her son’s Jace and Cooper as they hit the community speaking to the students at Beaver Falls High School, which will be starting up their own Club Hope during the 2019-2020 school year. She also was honored to speak at the Beaver Falls Rotary Club meeting, educating the group about all the Club Hope Foundation has accomplished in it’s first year!

Contact us today and we would be happy to meet with your group and inform them about how you can get involved in all our foundation is doing to help those impacted by a cancer diagnosis!
