Fostering A Hope — Shayla's Local Love Mission

Fostering A Hope (FAH) is in the process of becoming a nonprofit organization that inspires others to overcome life trials through fundraising, volunteering, raising awareness, teaching, and praising online, in the community and by supporting other charities.

FAH first mission is to start a #FEEDTHEHUNGRYMOVEMENT with Fellowship of the Word's great help by supporting City Set on a Hill's ministry, led by Jeff Mauney and his mission is to help feed the homeless and to share his testimony on how he came to know God.  Together we are working on collecting non-perishable large can food items, hygiene items, and gift cards.  They do have a more extended list inside the shelter if you desire to give more.  They are located in Gastonia, 7 days a week, starting at 7p.m., and can give receipts for tithing purposes if asked.  Check out the photos to the right to get a better sense of what is going on and feel free to contact me with questions or feedback.
