Trust us, we heard you. And we want to help, too.

KISS 104.1’s HOSEA Helps KISS-A-THON

HOSEA Helps: Thank You!

THANK YOU for your support Metro Atlanta!  With your help we raised over $43,000 for Hosea Helps!

  

For over four decades, Hosea Helps resided at 1035 Donnelly Avenue in Southwest Atlanta. As of July 1, 2017, Hosea Helps will be homeless, and their lease will not be renewed, so they need a NEW HOME. The funds from this campaign will go toward purchasing a new warehouse, moving expenses and closing costs.

You can still help!  Right now, you can donate at gofundme.com/4Hosea   

 

Imagine what Atlanta would be without Hosea Helps:  
  • 15,000 Georgia seniors would not receive hot meals 
  • 121 families will go homeless 
  • 2,000 children would not have school supplies or toys for Christmas 
  • 2,800 families would not have vital health screenings and preventative health care services 
  • 21,000 families would be without nutritious food 
  • 2,000 orphans in Uganda would be without food and housing 
  • 700 children in our school in the Philippines would lose access to education K-12. 
  • Countless number of homeless citizens would freeze in the winter along with hundreds of seniors would not have heat 
  • 9,000 volunteers would lose the opportunity to give back to the greater Atlanta community    

Hosea Helps needs to raise $600,000 to help with PURCHASING, MOVING & CLOSING COSTS. The new location will be larger allowing them to expand their outreach programs and continue their mission - helping people in need. They need your help to continue their work, so please donate and share this link with your friends so they can make a difference too!  

Hosea Helps is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization - donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. All donations will be used solely for the purchase, moving expenses and costing cost for the new warehouse.  

Panera's pink-ribbon bagels to raise funds for breast cancer awareness

Brianna Chambers contributed to this report.

Panera Bread Co. is teaming up with local organizations to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.

During the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the company will sell its signature Pink Ribbon Bagel, a twist on the Cherry Vanilla Bagel, a mix of cherry chips, dried cherries, honey, vanilla and brown sugar. A portion of the proceeds of the Pink Ribbon bagel will be donated to local nonprofits across the country. 

Erin Barnhart, community relations manager for a Panera Bread franchise based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, said each participating market has its own breast cancer partners.

"The partner really does make a difference," she said. "We appreciate our local partners, as their support can make all the difference in achieving our goals of building awareness and raising funds for treatment and research."

Panera has more than 1,600 locations in 41 states and the District of Columbia. 

Select markets offer a 100 percent donation day, during which the entirety of that day's sales of Pink Ribbon Bagels is donated to breast cancer focused organizations, according to Panera's website.

In Dayton, Ohio, proceeds will be donated to local nonprofit Pink Ribbon Girls and the Miami Valley Hospital Foundation.

"We make this campaign a priority every year for a reason," said Sam Covelli, owner and operator of Covelli Enterprises, the Ohio-based franchisee of Dayton-area Panera Bread restaurants. "The funds raised by the Pink Ribbon Bagel are helping to save the lives of local women with breast cancer. There's no better feeling than knowing you can help make difference."

Pink Ribbon Girls provide free direct services to patients and their families undergoing breast and other women's reproductive cancer treatment through their programs.

Mikki Clancy, chief operating officer of Miami Valley Hospital, survived breast cancer and said she benefited from the services of Pink Ribbon Girls and the hospital.

"Pink Ribbon Girls and Miami Valley Hospital were a godsend in my treatment and recovery," she said. "Supporting these community assets serves hundreds of local patients in their fight against cancer."

Twelve participating West Virginia area Panera locations will donate to Susan G. Komen West Virginia.

"We are so excited to partner with Panera Bread for the sixth year to raise funds and awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness month," said Donna DeHart, executive director West Virginia Susan G. Komen. "The Pink Ribbon Bagels are always a big hit with our survivors, volunteers, grantees and supporters. Money raised from the October campaign will be used to provide uninsured and under-insured West Virginians with life-saving screenings and awareness."

According to the Panera website, the franchise has raised tens of thousands of dollars for breast cancer partners through Pink Ribbon Bagel campaigns in the past 10 years.

"It's not a hard sell," Barnhart said. "People want to be involved in whatever way they can. That's what's so great about the Pink Ribbon Bagel. People might say, 'I can't write a check, but I can buy a bagel.'"

Ruby was born a fighter. Diagnosed with Down syndrome hours after her birth, she’s spent her entire little life fighting against statistics. She has dealt with leukemia the same way. Ruby was diagnosed with AML-M7 a few months after her 2nd birthday, following a routine CBC; Ruby was not showing any symptoms. The hardest part has been having our family split up for long periods of time: in four months, Ruby was in the hospital for over 60 days. Ruby has two older siblings who miss her during her hospital stays, especially since they cannot visit her in the hospital during flu season (which has been in effect for almost all of Ruby's treatments so far). Ruby started preschool two days a week the week before she was admitted to the hospital. Leukemia has stolen some precious time for her in that regard, as early intervention is so important for kids with Down syndrome. But as difficult as some of these things have been, Ruby has led us through this with minimal fear. She has responded very well to the chemo, and her energy and spunk have remained. Ruby's smile makes everyone who sees her, in and out of the hospital, smile too.

As March 2016, Ruby is in remission and is transitioning back into 'normal' life. Ruby loves music, playing with other kids, playgrounds, and reading.

Pass the Plate Challenge

Since its founding in 1971, Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless Food (HFTH), a Christian international aid organization, distributed more than $3.0 billion in food, clothing, medical, educational, toiletries, furniture and cleaning supplies to 16 Georgia counties, three states and to the Philippines, the Ivory Coast and Uganda. The organization maintains an average administrative overhead of 14 percent -- ensuring the poor receive 86 percent of all donations.

Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless follows the principle that education and self-help must fortify charity work so recipients learn to break the cycle of poverty. HFTH prevents homelessness by providing rent, mortgage, and utility assistance, financial literacy and GED classes, distribution of school supplies and book bags to children, annual Christmas children’s party, intensive case management and support to programs to teach recipients how to develop small businesses and co-ops while providing leadership training to independent farmers.

Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless was founded in 1971 by civil rights icons Rev. Hosea and Juanita T. Williams. Their vision was instrumental in guiding Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless as it became one of the most significant human services organization in the Southeast United States providing services for some 50,000 people per year. In 2000, Afemo and Elisabeth Omilami, who have extensive experience in program development and an in-depth knowledge of meeting the basic needs of families in crisis so those families don’t become homeless especially the  working poor and the homeless, tripled the numbers served and expanded HFTH to a year-round human service organization. Mrs. Omilami assumed the Presidency in 2000 and provides the leadership for Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless during this time of explosive growth.

Created to help destitute people in the United States, Hosea Feed The Hungry has forged a spirit of cooperation between individuals, corporations and churches of the First World and of the Third World. Established as a 501(c)(3) charity, HFTH collects funds and Gifts-in kind year-round. Hosea Feed the Hungry was named one of the top charities in Georgia for its Katrina relief program to over 6,000 hurricane survivors by the Georgia State Senate.
