New Hope's annual fundraiser is running now through National Giving Day on Dec. 1.

The fundraising goal is $7,500, which would facilitate operational costs of the program, and further its impact on students in the Azalea Park community. It would also fund the expansion of New Hope's Online Learning Academy, which provides a much-needed educational alternative for students, especially with the pandemic still rampant.

"There are some children that right now - they're not succeeding," said John Newman, New Hope CEO. "They want to succeed, and they just need a little help. Your little help can make all the difference."

The pandemic halted earlier fundraising opportunities, so now donations can be made online at the Facebook fundraiser page here, through New Hope Lafayette's Venmo or PayPal, or with a check by mail.
