Volunteers are needed year-round at the community Hope Center in Cottage Hills, as the number of different ministries continues to expand.  The center offers the traditional food pantry, and cafe called "Soup for the Soul."  But there are also some services you might not know are available.

Volunteer Debbie Kanofsky tells The Big Z there are also physicians and beauticians that donate their time.
