Recently, Dave Clark of the Lions Club stopped by to present a check to House of Hope. The Lions Club has some funding through the E. Stuart James Grant Charitable Trust, and they chose to help us out with (literally) keeping the lights on at the shelter! Since our expansion, the utility bill has increased significantly. We now have two facilities and twice as many people staying at the shelter – so the monthly utility bill has also almost doubled.
Thankfully, the Lions Club will help us out! With a $5,000 grant made possible through the E. Stuart James Grant Charitable Trust, they are partnering with House of Hope to serve our most vulnerable neighbors. We appreciate them so much!
