Forest of Hope Benefiting the Richmond Rescue Mission
The Forest of Hope is a Christmas themed fundraiser organized by the friends of the Richmond County Rescue Mission. The event was created to support the expansion and sustainability of services provided to the homeless at the rescue mission's new location in East Rockingham.
A team of volunteers at the Place of Grace campus will convert the old Rohanen Middle School gym into a winter wonderland filled with beautiful and whimsical trees and wreaths that have been donated and decorated by businesses and individuals in the community. All guests will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite decorations, and the winners will be acknowledged during the events closing ceremonies. Each donated item will also be sold via silent auction with all proceeds benefiting the Richmond County Rescue Mission.
Attendees will also be treated to beautiful musical performances, an assortment of Christmas snacks, activities for children, fun photo opportunities, and plenty of Christmas surprises.
