Festival of Sharing is held yearly in mid-September on the at the STEAM Center on the Campus of Otterbein University in Westerville, OH.  Sponsored by Church World Service, the day provides churches of all denominations an opportunity to drop off CWS Self-Help kits.  Kits may be of several types:  hygiene kits with basic supplies such as washcloths, towels, soap, toothbrushes and grooming aids; school kits with a bag containing notebooks, pencils, crayons, scissors, erasers, and a ruler; or disaster clean-up buckets which have basic cleaning and disinfecting supplies, trash bags, clothesline, and laundry soap; or baby layettes with essentials such as diapers, pins, receiving blankets, and undershirts.   Each year New Hope provides kits and also acts as a receiving point for other Shelby County churches to drop off their contributions for shipping.  In 2021, fifty school kits were assembled and New Hope provided the trucking for a 36′ U-Haul van of kits collected around the Miami Valley District.  For 2022, flood cleanup buckets will be assembled and trucking provided again for the region.
