On Tuesday of last week we had the distinct privilege of serving alongside some amazing NW Arkansas organizations and incredible people to participate in HOPE NWA 2011. Final numbers will be released soon, but we are told that over 350 families/people were served during the one day resource event held at Central United Methodist Church in Fayetteville. HOPE NWA 2011 began 3 years ago by Dr. Kevin Fitzpatrick, Professor and Jones Chair in Community Director, Community and Family Institute, and it is incredible to see how the community has come alongside to support those in need.
We had the opportunity to talk briefly with...
Chloe Seal, 3 Bags in 2 Days
During the bag distribution, Chloe also asked people to share their thoughts on the one thing they wanted the world to know about them. Truly beautiful to see the hope that was present in those words.
Brittney Moore of Shear Kindness & O'Shay, Owner of Black Sheep Salon
This event would not have been possible with all the incredible people behind the scenes who helped make it happen. It's just another example of how incredible our NW Arkansas community is and the lengths they will go to to help those in need.
