3 WAYS YOU CAN GIVE TO HELP IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH
by Andrea Mathis
Non-profit organizations are struggling right now, unable to host essential in- person fund raising events in which contributions greatly support their wonderful causes. You can help! Together with OneHope Wine.. Share wine, give hope. ONEHOPE Wine is a Napa Valley, California winery. From humble beginnings and a lofty vision, ONEHOPE was founded on one simple idea: that great wine can change the world. It’s over a bottle of wine that we gather together, open our hearts and share stories that shape our vision for the future. ONEHOPE has donated more than $5.6 million to causes around the world. ONEHOPE donates half its profits to charity and each ONEHOPE wine varietal supports a different charitable cause or organization. A portion of the proceeds from this wine tasting event will go to support the Home Start Hope Organization.
Home Start Hope provides brand new, essential household items to women and their children transitioning to independent living from emergency shelters in Rochester, NY. At Home Start Hope we serve women who have experienced homelessness including veterans, women recovering from addiction and survivors of domestic violence. Since 2010 we have met the needs of more than 500 women and children. Over 90% of money raised goes directly to purchasing items to stock our shelves. Your donation ensures Home Start Hope can continue to provide this life changing experience for even more women and children.
***If you are unable to attend this event you can still give. Go to www.onehopewine.com/event/67777 or www.homestarthope.org
