Many of us at ONEHOPE started our careers in the hospitality industry and, to this day, we still consider ourselves members of this tight knit community. Restaurants and hotels have supported us since the beginning, so when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and unemployment rates skyrocketed, we knew we had to find a way to give back.
Grants for Moms in Need
We decided to create a “Mothers in Hospitality” campaign to fund $50,000 in grants to provide grocery credit and ONEHOPE gift cards to 500 mothers who were recently laid off, or temporarily out of work, during these uncertain times.
Thanks to our community and customers who shopped to support the cause or donated directly, ONEHOPE was able to fund $60,000 in grants to help 600 mothers and their families.
“In such a trying time, this is a beautiful glimmer of positivity” – Grant recipient in Chicago, IL
“I cannot begin to express how much the kindness of your grant meant to me. It changed my whole attitude and I am so grateful.” – Grant recipient in Napa, CA
Several grant recipients used their ONEHOPE credit towards enrollment to join our community as Cause Entrepreneurs- empowering them to earn an income, while making an impact, immediately. Learn more in the interview below.
Founded by Trailblazing Moms
At ONEHOPE, three of our co-founders are moms, our winemaker is a mom, and our CEO was inspired by his mom and grandmother. We understand the challenges that come with being a working mother in the hospitality industry, and our hearts go out to every parent and their families affected by this pandemic.
We’re so grateful for the opportunity to give back to those in need, and we can’t thank our community enough for supporting this cause.
