The Hope Foundation Sponsors July Event!

The Hope Foundation of Greater DaytonAfter only two years, The Hope Foundation of Greater Dayton has grown from distributing groceries to a handful of households to over 700 monthly in Greene and Montgomery Counties in Ohio. They distribute more than TEN TONS of Foodbank food EVERY MONTH through their mobile food pantry. Each household receives two bags of groceries and 5 lbs of meat. (A $40.00 donation allows Hope to access 1,000 lbs of food!) Volunteers prep, bag and distribute food every week through outreaches in Dayton, Huber Heights, Beavercreek/Kettering, Fairborn, Cedarville and Jamestown. Hope plans to expand into Xenia, Yellow Springs and Spring Valley in the near future.

Hope is currently an all-volunteer organization that partners with churches, schools and other organizations to make a difference. They recently received a grant from CareSource Foundation allowing them to computerize their operation, eliminating paperwork for those they are serving!

“The tough economy has hit people pretty hard. People who have never had to visit a food pantry are finding themselves having to ask for help. Our job is to make that as easy as possible for them. For us, the food, as important as it is, is only a means to an end. That end is building relationship with the people we are serving… to restore people’s dignity… to listen to their story and offer encouragement.”

Scott Sliver (Sly-ver), Hope’s Executive Director loves social media! Scott’s background in advertising and non-profits gives him unique insights on building relationships, developing volunteers and empowering others.

Our cakes orders are a bit different than traditional bakeries. We have no pre-made sheet cakes displayed. Every cake is made fresh and specific to the intended person. As a result, we require advance notice on all cake orders.
