Hope Week_WD.jpg

Hope Week is an opportunity for us to serve our communities by meeting tangible needs. Needs look different for everyone. For some, hope is providing Christmas gifts for their family. For others, hope means painting their garage door. Hope takes on many forms, but our goal is to be light and life to the people around us.
