Hope Shall Bloom
A simple program that began with a fishbowl and a simple phrase: “Change to Change the World” has blossomed into program that generates thousands of dollars every year to help worthy causes. Every month a different cause that aligns with our Core Values is chosen by our Board of Deacons and this special offering is passed along to charities like CLUE Ventura County, The Samaritan Center, One Great Hour of Sharing and more. If you would like to give to the this month’s cause, simply select “Hope Shall Bloom” from the drop-down list in the form above.
Hope Shall Bloom for This Month
Southern Smoke Foundation – Emergency Relief Fund
Established in 2017, our emergency relief fund has distributed more than $5.4 million to individuals in the food and beverage industry in crisis. The Coronavirus Pandemic has nearly toppled the Food and Beverage industry, particularly small, non-corporate establishments. this has caused millions of restaurant workers to lose their jobs, and face a serious struggle as to how to feed their families.
Southern Smoke funds go directly to those in need after an application process. These donations do not go to executives or corporations, but to real people with real needs.
