Hope Network – Continued
Each year, Hope Network provides qualifying families and individuals, like Beth, with practical services to help meet their needs and most importantly to give them hope. Located in Raytown, Missouri, the Hope Network was uniquely created to assist this struggling community. There, families who are in need of transportation can qualify for a donated car, or help with car repairs. Elementary children receive prescription glasses to ensure their school year is a success. And the most basic of all needs – food is provided by the thousands of pounds yearly to families, individuals, and seniors. Even children’s backpacks are filled with food before the weekend to ensure they will not go hungry or miss a meal when school is out!
“We feel strongly led to support the Hope Network,” says David, “especially because of their work with single mothers and children in this community. The Hope Network provides everything from medical and transportation services, to meeting the most basic need of food, clothing and shelter. Their efforts to reach out to those in need and provide them with the critical resources and services they so desperately require continues to bring HOPE to those that need it the most!”
Long before, Blake Clarkson and David Todd were business partners, they volunteered with the Hope Network. Years later, when Blake and David started their own company, they decided to continue their involvement, this time as a business. They have provided meals, volunteered, and provided Christmas presents for local children through the Hope Network’s Angel Tree.
“If you live in the city of Raytown, Missouri – chances are you know someone who needs assistance. With 11% of the town’s population earning $15,000 or less yearly the need here is great. It is a privilege to partner with Hope Network as a major donor, and as volunteers – to help provide much needed assistance to the people of this community!” said Blake.
