Donations in the Memory of Russ Blackwood

Operation HOPE’s beloved Director of Operations, 2004 ~ 2013

No one had more enthusiasm for the renovation of Operation Hope's new property at 857/859 East Vista Way than Russell Blackwood, Director of Operations. You can honor Russell's memory in a number of ways.

Make a contribution to the capital campaign so that we can continue to provide services from our newly remodeled location, using the PayPal link at top-right if this web page, to help continue the work that Russell was so passionate about. You may also mail your donation to Operation Hope, P.O. Box 3273, Vista, CA 92085 Attention: Beth Hallock, Administrative Director.

Your contribution now will help us in defraying the costs associated with acquiring and the renovation/construction of Our New Campus at 859 East Vista Way.

Our goal is to raise $1.4 million by January 2013, in order to purchase the old medical office buildings and former community clinic office space for conversion into emergency homeless client and support staff use.

Renovations begin during October, so your donations now are even more time sensitive as we move forward in providing a warm, safe and secure HOPE for the homeless.

We Always need help to sustain OUR shelter

By working together with Operation HOPE, we have a mechanism for action to ease the devastating trauma of homelessness and make a difference in people’s lives in our corner of the world.
