Operation Hope Kicks Off The Winter Warmth Campaign for the Needy Among Us in Kuwait




OH kicked off the 2013 Winter Warmth Campaign yesterday with the packing of the first batch of winter hamper bags. A Huge round of thanks and appreciation to the great volunteer turn out from the Boy scouts under the supervision of scout coordinator Ryan Buist, the students from GUST and other volunteers from the community that joined to successfully pack 660 bags!

We also thank our exemplary volunteers from AIS (David, Syed, Ahmed) and the ASK volunteer group under Ms Lauren’s super vision along with Chita, Ann, Jason who helped us champion through a busy day at Esther’s and sorting the incoming donations!
What a productive day at HOPE house.

 Thank you all once again.

 Please watch out for updates or ways to contribute on their website
