On behalf the team at “Heart of Hope” we would like to thank the Town, all of the volunteer’s (and there were many!) the Sponsors and friends for their support in helping to bring the first annual “Heart of Hope” Run for hunger to fruition. The Run was established to help the following programs on this Island: Nourish NC (The Backpack Buddy program), The Help Center and “Heart of Hope.” As of this writing we have already been able to give The Help Center $616.00, two shopping carts full of food and water…we still have almost a pallet of water to disburse! I had no idea how much a pallet of water was until Food Lion donated one! In addition, thanks to the generosity of Wendy’s and MacDonald’s, we have free coupons left over to disburse as well.
The 2nd annual “Heart of Hope” Run is yet to be determined. But, from all indications we will be starting our clocks again (on the site) at the beginning of the year and hope that you will all be able to participate! This was an experience that was truly a community outreach for those who need our help!
