Nassau Hope House Needs Donations
May 13, 2013 02:00AM
This time of year is always difficult for charitable organizations. Pantries are bare and money is scarce. It’s hard to stretch those donation dollars given during the holidays to last all year. So before you head out on your summer vacation this year, consider helping out the Hope House with food, clothing, or even a check, if you can afford it. Last month, the Hope House sent out a desperate plea for food, and received many donations, but now their cupboards are bare again.
Some of the items needed are basic non-perishable food and hygiene items. Some of their most needed goods are peanut butter, jelly, cereal, canned meats and soups, bottled water, spaghetti sauce, paper goods, diapers, razors and shaving cream, sheets, pillows, and bath towels. If you would like to make donation, please stop by the Hope House at 410 S. 9th Street. Their office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to noon, and 1 to 5 p.m.
