Thank you to Ryan, Ryan’s Charity Treasures, for donating part of his proceeds from this year’s Sonshine Preschool Craft Show to benefit Hope Center!

Wishing all of our Hope Center families, our volunteers, our supporters, our donors, our neighbors and friends, a very Merry Christmas!
In December, families in the Faith Formation program at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Winfield made beautiful journals for our Hope Center Hope Totes. Families added prayers and sweet notes in a few pages of each journal. They are amazing! Thank you to Rochelle McNamara for coordinating the service project.
Thank you to volunteer, Kim Ziants, for wrapping the gifts for our Hope Center S.K.I.P.P.E.R.S. support group families. Each family was given a clock that said “Have faith, have hope always, love others.”
When Kerri Midkiff founded Hope Center, she started a tradition of giving each Hope Center family a special ornament at Christmas. Hope Center volunteers have continued this wonderful tradition! Thank you to Michele Magiera and Tanya Wolfe for creating this year’s beautiful ornament!
