Join Us for the 6th Annual Holiday Hope Charity Drive!

Winter Giving: The Heart of Our Community As frosty winds herald the arrival of winter, our community prepares to warm hearts with the 6th Annu

al Holiday Hope Charity Drive. This event, cherished and anticipated, is more than a tradition; it's a lifeline for families supported by the Henry Hosea House (HHH) in Newport. This year, the drive, organized by Executive Transportation and Express Mobile Transportation, is dedicated to gathering winter essentials for those facing hardships. Set your reminders for a day of giving on December 2nd, 2023, from 10 AM to 12 PM at 901 Monmouth St, Newport, KY. The gathering spot is the Superior Prosthetics Lot, right across from Carabello Coffee.


The Holiday Hope Charity Drive is not just an event; it's a symbol of the community's commitment to uplift each other. At its heart is Henry Hosea House and our mission to not only feed bodies but also nourish souls. We extend beyond providing meals, addressing the silent struggles of loneliness, helplessness, and lack of basic needs that often accompany poverty and homelessness. Our approach is unique: treating every visitor with the respect and warmth and building a community within our community.

Tammy Bravo, the co-owner of Executive Transportation and a devoted member of the HHH board, emphasizes the necessity of our contributions: Recently quoted in Link saying, “For those facing the harsh reality of the streets, simple items like sleeping bags, gloves, and warmers are not just comforts; they are essentials for survival.” Steve Ader, President of the Henry Hosea House, reflected on the partnership's value: “Working with Executive Transportation is pivotal for initiatives like the Holiday Hope Charity Drive. It's a testament to our collective dedication to meet immediate needs and weave a fabric of community and togetherness.”

So, let’s rally together in the spirit of the season. Your kindness can light up the holiday for someone in need. Join us in spreading warmth and hope this winter! Furthermore, we're excited to introduce new elements to this year's drive. Alongside the collection of essentials, there will be interactive stations where volunteers and visitors can engage in meaningful activities. These include a 'Message of Hope' board where participants can leave notes of encouragement and a 'Warm Wishes' station for children to craft winter-themed greeting cards for the recipients of the charity drive. We believe these personal touches not only enhance the experience of giving but also reinforce the values of empathy and connection within our community. Each message and card serves as a reminder that behind every contribution lies a story of compassion and solidarity.


In addition, local artists and musicians will grace the event with their talents, creating a festive and heartwarming atmosphere. Their performances are not only entertaining but also serve as a reminder of the rich cultural fabric of Newport and the power of art to unite and inspire.

To ensure the success of this year's drive, we encourage local businesses and community members to participate in whatever capacity they can. Whether it's through donations, volunteering, or simply spreading the word, every effort counts towards making a significant difference in the lives of those we aim to help.

The Holiday Hope Charity Drive stands as a beacon of hope and humanity in our community. It's a time to come together, share in the spirit of generosity, and make a lasting impact in the lives of our neighbors. Let's make this year's event a memorable one, filled with the warmth and joy of giving.

Remember, every helping hand makes a brighter holiday for someone. See you on December 2nd – together, we can make a difference!
