Four years ago, Hope City Church began offering a voluntary donation ticket for the Egg Drop and has since raised thousands of dollars for BDNA. We look forward to partnering with them on this event again next year. Click here to find out more about virtual services at Hope City Church.

(This generous contribution would normally go towards free community events and neighborhood improvements. At this time, BDNA is brainstorming ways to put these funds towards relief efforts in the neighborhood.)
