This year's Spring Benefit was the first one we've held in person since 2019! We loved celebrating community with everyone together in one room.
We asked our affiliate partners for the heartwarming stories they remembered from last year's His Toy Store Reimagined, and here is what they shared.
The Hope Exchange is a special community of 200+ donors who give monthly. Through this monthly giving program, Hope Exchange members ensure that our affiliates can always count on financial support.
As the challenges of the pandemic continue, we decided to focus on biblical hope and how our affiliate partners remain beacons of hope in our city.
As we reflect on this past fiscal year (July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021), it's clear how much we reimagined our work (from events to campaigns to programs) alongside our affiliate partners.
To show solidarity in celebrating #AAPI heritage and raising awareness around #stopasianhate, Thrive Collective supported the creation of a new mural, Spread Love: Stop Asian Hate by Bianca Romero.
At our Virtual Spring Benefit on Thursday, June 17, we celebrated the creative reimagining that HFNY has encouraged and fostered in our network this year!
This year, we launched a few fitness and fundraising program called the Miles of Hope Challenge! Starting in March, our network was encouraged to run, bike, walk, etc., between affiliate sites across our city!
We recently shared some ways that His Toy Store Reimagined is bringing joy to families with toys and basic needs. Here are more ways that the holiday fund is bringing Christmas cheer to our affiliate communities!
In our 2020 fiscal year, especially during the COVID-19 months, we saw the power of our network in action like never before in our city.
