Dartmouth — On Sunday, March 26, My Brother’s Keeper will be hosting Strikes for Hope, a bowling event for families, colleagues and friends to support the mission of My Brother’s Keeper. 

The event will take place at Wonder Bowl, 66 Hathaway Rd, New Bedford. There will be two sessions: a Family Bowl from noon to 2 p.m., and an Office Bowl from 3-5.

The ministry invites all to join its community of family, colleagues, and friends for an afternoon of bowling and fun, at its second annual Strikes for Hope event.

All ages and skill levels are welcome. Registration includes two hours of bowling, shoe rentals, event T-shirt, and pizza. During this event, they will host the Strikes for Hope Challenge, where a generous sponsor will contribute $25 to My Brother’s Keeper for each of the first 400 strikes thrown!

Tickets are affordably priced and include bowling shoes and pizza.

This event will support the organization’s core charitable programs of 35 years: furniture, food and Christmas assistance. The mission of My Brother’s Keeper is “To bring the Love and Hope of Jesus Christ to those we serve.” My Brother’s Keeper provides assistance to more than 57,000 children and adults throughout the South Coast and Southeastern Massachusetts each year. This is possible thanks to the generosity of community partners and the dedication of 17 staff and more than 5,000 volunteers working year-round to serve this community. All items are delivered free of charge and without prerequisites — a critical service for residents without transportation, the elderly and disabled.

Demand for assistance in the community remains extremely strong. Strikes for Hope will not only raise funds to help My Brother’s Keeper provide as much assistance to families as possible, but also raise awareness of the great work in the South Coast region. 

My Brother’s Keeper does not receive any local, state or federal funding, and relies on private donations to serve the community. Another way to support the mission is by making a financial donation online.

In 2022, My Brother’s Keeper delivered personally-selected Christmas gifts, healthy food, and new or like new furniture to 56,480 children and adults living in more than 100 communities from the North Shore down to Fall River and Cape Cod.
