)-- 4-Hope of Massachusetts, Inc. receives Non-Profit Status to Support Individuals/Loved Ones Dealing with Critical Illness/Sudden Loss
Gordon-Conwell student, Emily Pember, announced the start of 4-Hope of Massachusetts, Inc. today. 4-Hope of Massachusetts, Inc. is a non-profit organization that supports people dealing with critical illness/sudden loss and their loved ones. The organization consists of Celebrations4Hope, Gifts4Hope, Letters4Hope and Reach4Hope. 4-Hope works with local, national and international companies to help put together birthday/holiday/family celebrations through Celebrations4Hope. They hope to soon be able to help with "end of treatment" and Celebration of Life parties. Letters4Hope has 20-something volunteers that write notes and send care packages to people while they are in the hospital or dealing with an illness at home. They do the same after someone has died either suddenly (for any reason) or from a critical illness. Gifts4Hope would love to take donations of new/lightly used items they can send to those in need. Reach4Hope, the final piece of 4-Hope, involves outreach. They post needs for items, house cleaning/food, babysitting etc. and volunteers in their area who would like to help can contact Reach4Hope for more information. Locally, they have been working with 6 Bay Road Salon to work with people who want to donate hair to Locks of Love. They have also been working with local companies for families dealing with critical illness to find fun things to do in the area while they are in treatment. They also hope to work with organizations/companies that would house these families while they are in treatment. 4-Hope would love to create a branch in each part of the country, as well as at least one to support people internationally. More information can be found on their website, 4-hopeofmassachusetts.org.
