Last Sunday was a beautiful summer day at Seascape Aquatic Center in Hoffman Estates, the perfect setting for Fellowship Housing’s Annual Picnic hosted by the Hoffman Estates Community Bank. For over 10 years now, Hoffman Estates Community Bank has sponsored an afternoon of food and fun for the 18 Fellowship Housing moms and their children. In addition to the festivities, the bank also donates a back pack and school supplies for each child in the program. Picture if you can the smile on 7 year old Kesha’s face when she received her baby blue Frozen backpack with LED lights that twinkle! Nothing lightens the heart of a mom more than seeing her child’s face light up with joy and excitement. The limited budget that a Fellowship Housing mom lives on during her two years in the program leaves little extra money to be spent on the ever-expanding list of supplies required by schools.
“My heart is beyond full knowing the generosity and support that the bank has extended to us. Without the help with school supplies, I wouldn’t have been able to make ends meet this month. The start of the school year is always an exciting and stressful time. But to know that my children are all set to start their year off well gives me peace of mind as a mom,” said a grateful Fellowship Housing mom.
On behalf of all the Fellowship Housing families, we extend a heartfelt thanks to the Hoffman Estates Community Bank for their partnership. Interested in learning how you can partner with us to impact the lives of these families? Contact Pam at Pamela@fhcmoms.org.
