This is yet another activity where the Evening Lions provide support and assistance as needed. We periodically have members who will go to Hot Springs and assist in the generation of the food boxes that are distributed.
“Project HOPE Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) charity. With your alliance and support, we will continue to make a difference in the lives of people in our community facing hunger. Your tax-deductible contributions provide the food bank the ability to reach out to the 50 agencies we serve. These agencies are located in seven Arkansas counties.
We operate as a pooling of resources, helping to support area non-profits that do not have the assets to purchase or store enormous quantities of food. Purchasing food wholesale in large lots for the best price helps homeless shelters, charity kitchens, food pantries, crisis centers, children’s homes, school backpack programs and children’s feeding programs to fulfill their missions. Our impact in the community is extensive due to our resources: a donated warehouse, debt-free equipment, and a volunteer workforce which includes our Executive Director and Inventory Specialist.”
