Get Ready For the SoupMobile’s Winter Coat and Blanket Drive!

Get Ready For the SoupMobile’s Winter Coat and Blanket Drive!

Every year thousands of Dallas homeless spend the winter months huddling for warmth in the streets. The SoupMobile is looking to help these men and women by providing them with coats and blankets to get through the season. But we need your help!

logo-soupmobile-2The SoupMobile was created in 2003 with the goal of feeding Dallas area homeless. In our first year we served 5,000 meals. Since then we have expanded to serve 200,000 meals per year, host an annual Celebrate Jesus Christmas gala, and operate the SoupMobile Village housing program. Soon we will even open a church!

SVDP-coat-drive-kidsThis year the SoupMobile and the Forte Implant Center are putting on a clothing drive for the winter season. We previously partnered together to give a Soupmobile employee a new smile.  We need all the coats and blankets we can get to distribute to Dallas area homeless. New and gently used items will be accepted.

Please donate whatever you can!

 

 

To donate, contact the office:

. . . or bring items in during office hours!

 

 

 

Walk4Water – Walk for Life

By |September 1st, 2016|Our Community|0 Comments|

Walk4Water – Walk for Life

In Africa, it is said, “Water Is Life,” and we at Healing Hands International believe that everything starts with water.

 

What is Walk4Water?

How far do you walk to get water? Four miles? One mile? Or is it just a few steps to the faucet?

Every day in developing countries, women and children walk an average of 4 miles to collect water for their family. Not only is this chore keeping the children from attending school, but the dirty water they are bringing home is also killing them at an alarming rate!

On average, a child dies every 21 seconds from water-related illnesses. More children die every day from dirty water than from malaria, aids, and measles COMBINED**.

 

WalkforWater2

 

This is why thousands of people around the country choose to Walk4Water. “We walk so they don’t have to!”

Walk4Water is a four-mile fundraising walk that began in 2007. Each event is unique and whether hosted by Healing Hands International or our partnership with you, the focus is to bring the life-saving gift of clean water to those who need it so desperately. Since the beginning of our water-drilling efforts in 2001, HHI has drilled over 600 clean water wells, bringing the gift of clean water to more than 1 million precious souls.

How Does It Work?

First, register to walk at one of the events currently scheduled. You may register as an individual or create a team and invite your friends to join you!

Share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We also think that good old-fashioned face-to-face conversations work! Let people know that even the smallest gift can make an impact. A simple $1.66 can make a difference.

Finally, join with others in walking 4 miles in honor of those who have to walk 4 miles everyday. If you’re up to a real challenge, try carrying a jerrican with 5 gallons of water while you walk. You will be surprised how difficult this is!

Join the Walk4Water event in The Colony, Texas October 29, 2016.
