Holiday Help Drive

Hope of Deliverance


For our Holiday Help Drive this year, St. Francis in the Foothills is proud to be pledging our help to Hope of Deliverance.


Hope of Deliverance is a 501(c)(3) foster-based dog rescue. They focus on rescuing dogs from overcrowded and underfunded rural shelters. They are non-breed restrictive and often take the difficult to place breeds as well as those needing medical care that the shelters cannot provide. They constantly need donations to help cover all the types of veterinary care, and have ongoing need for dog food, microchips, and other items which you can find on their Amazon Wish List below.


This Help Drive will be going from Monday, November 23rd through December. All donations are tax deductible and you can donate in several easy ways:

  • Donate online HERE and choose "Hope of Deliverance" from our Fund menu.


  • Write a check payable to "Hope of Deliverance" and send it to the church office.


  • Help HOD and St. Francis at the same time by purchasing gift cards for PetSmart and Amazon from Shop with Scrip. HOD can get what they need, and St. Francis will get a percentage of your purchase. Contact Lorelei Neiburger at


  • Click on the button and purchase items from their Amazon Wish List.


You can drop them off at

Lily's Wish


Lily’s Wish is a medical fund to honor Lily, and dogs just like her, who never stopped fighting no matter what odds life handed them.


Lily’s brave spirit is something we fell in love with, and we have always vowed to take in dogs just like her.

We know there are plenty of dog lovers who have asked to be able to donate to our rescue in their honor. A donation to Lily’s Wish will support the medical needs of dogs in our rescue who, like Lily, may have immediate and ongoing medical needs.
