We are still enjoying the buzz from the HOPE mural dedication event!! Thanks for the great article The Villager Newspaper!

A mural dedication for HOPE Pantry Food Bank Attic Thrift Store was more than just a dedication July 7 or an unveiling of a creative work of art by Catherine Pistone. It was taking a blank wall and making it an artistic beacon of hope for everyone.

Pistone’s mural can been seen southbound on Broadway, a half-mile south of Hampden at 3940 S. Broadway.

22 energetic and smiling preteens from St Andrews United Methodist Church volunteered 3 hours of their time this past Saturday to assist HOPE. They did a lot of cleaning, weeding and sorting food. They also got to cool off in HOPE’s big commercial walk-in refrigerator. Most importantly, they demonstrated the many wonderful values that they have learned through their youth ministry. Their enthusiasm, compassion and desire to help their fellow human was inspiring. We are so grateful to them for contributing to our mission.
That’s the spirit of HOPE.
