The year-round needs of those in crisis are met with help from several local social service agencies and non-profit groups. But now, the Community Hope Center is sending out a plea for help. According to their estimates, they are running out of food, and their shelves need to be restocked as soon as possible.
While supplies usually come in at a slower pace when there's not a holiday to remind the public of the year-round need, Executive Director Lyn Cloninger says the need is great.
Anyone who wishes to contribute can call 259-0959, or by dropping off donations at 1201 Hope Center Lane in Cottage Hills. Donations are accepted Monday through Wednesday and Friday from 9am-1pm. You can find a link to the Community Hope Center website by clicking on this story at AltonDailyNews.com
