More than $1000 was raised during the silent auction at the Rustic Peddler Market to benefit Hope Center support programs. We met some new friends who needed Hope Totes for loved ones, several new volunteers and some wonderful contacts that want to donate to Hope Center in the future! Thank you to the entire Rustic…

Merry Christmas!

Wishing all of our Hope Center families, our volunteers, our supporters, our donors, our neighbors and friends, a very Merry Christmas!

Holy Spirit Catholic Church families make journals for Hope Center

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!

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.”

Hope Center support group participants receive ornaments

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!
