Project Hope is still here to help

Thursday, April 9, 2020

Project Hope would like to thank everyone who has reached out in this difficult time. Our community — and even people from across state lines—have rallied together to prepare for the increased need in our county.

Our thrift and antique stores will continue to be closed, but the food bank remains available. We currently distribute boxes every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the first Saturday of the month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Please call us if you are unable to make it during those times, and we’ll arrange to meet you. If you are sheltering at home, we can deliver—just give us a call at 322- 8537.

The upcoming weeks and months will be some of the most difficult ones that our county has faced. We have seen the deep impact to our clients, just as you likely have seen or personally experienced.

Most of the working families that we serve have been laid off or had their hours cut. In response, Project Hope has increased the amount of food we distribute, and we are preparing for other expenses — both in higher food prices, and a greater need for our financial assistance.

At a time of social isolation, we are grateful more than ever for those who have reached out to us and other nonprofits, and will allow us to serve our neighbors.
