The Community Hope Center is putting out an urgent call for food donations.  The Cottage Hills-based organization is looking at nearly bare shelves, and is hoping the Riverbend can come together so they can continue serving their growing list of clients.  

Angela Valdez, Development Director at the Community Hope Center, says they will start distributing the goods as soon as they receive them.

Valdez comments

The Community Hope Center serves the year-round crisis needs of local residents who are seeking aid and is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am-1pm.  You can contact them to donate by calling 259-0959, or just stop by 1201 Hope Center Lane in Cottage Hills.  You can also drop off items at Jacoby Arts Center or Halpin Music in Alton.
