Providing Hope Every Month

There Is Hope is an A Lot of Good project that provides selected families with monthly support for a full year. Families receiving assistance can be nominated to the project by any of the A Lot of Good Partners (Hospital, Community or Outreach Partners) once a year.

A Lot of Good founder, Sandy Cappelli said the project assisted its first families in January of 2022.

“Our goal has always been to help people and families in need. This project was designed to reach out to families at a much more significant level”, said Sandy.

Each selected family will be eligible to receive a monthly disbursement of gift cards and/or vouchers for their family equivalent to $300 per month. Included in the disbursement is:

  • $100 voucher for clothing and other necessities from the A Lot of Good Thrift store.
  • $100 gift card for gasoline.
  • $100 gift card for food..

The families will also receive backpacks for their school aged children in August.In December, they will be able to participate in the A Lot of Good Winter Wonderland Project that distributes toys and gifts for the holidays.

The total amount of benefit each family receives is estimated to be around $4,000.

Sandy Cappelli added that the funding for There Is Hope came from the profits of the A Lot of Good Thrift Store, but is hopeful that support from community donations will allow more families to be part of the project. In 2022, there were nineteen families. In 2023, because of additional community funding, twenty-one families were supported.

However, without the help of additional community support, the number of families receiving support will be greatly reduced. Your help is needed to make sure that does not happen.

The goal for 2024 is $24,000 to support families on the program. All donations received will be used to pay for gas & food cards for the families. While a $2400 donation will fund a family’s needs for an entire year, any donation amount is appreciated.

Sandy Cappelli added, “Hopefully, with year-end donations and some corporate involvement, the project can be expanded up to 30-40 families per year.”
