Gift of Hope

Bay Life seeks to be a church that shares the love of God with our community while also helping meet their specific, everyday needs. Gift of Hope is a partnership we have with more than 10 other local churches to help families in need within our Greater Brandon community during the holidays.

Christmas is holly and jolly for many families...but for some, the holidays are a very exhausting, stressful, and worrisome season. Bay Life teams up with other churches to put on a three day event in which allows families to receive their family's holiday meal, and pick out gifts for their family members, for free! This year from December 15-16, we are pouring our efforts into providing a Gift of Hope for Christmas in our community.

Need Help?

Families can register for Gift of Hope at ECHO of Brandon (507 North Parsons Ave, Brandon, FL) Monday - Friday from 9am-1pm, and Tuesday evenings 5pm-7pm until December 1st (registration is closed 11/23 and 11/24). Registration is October 30 - December 1st.

How can you give?

If you want to provide a Gift of Hope to families in our community, you can donate below, or bring a gift or $25 gift card for a boy or girl (ages 11-12) to Bay Life on Sundays at the Gift of Hope table in the lobby starting November 17th. We are looking for $25 gift cards to local places teens love such as Target, Amazon, Old Navy, Bath & Body Works, and the like. If you need more ideas, you can check out our Amazon registry and have it sent directly to the church!
