SW HOPE Begins February 28

Get your cans and cash ready, because the 16th annual SW HOPE Community Food Drive kicks off on February 28! Established in 2007 by local faith communities, this campaign aims to raise food and funds for the Neighborhood House Food Pantry, which relies on community support to serve the thousands of people fed each year. Between February 28 and April 10, we aim to raise $70,000 (or the 280,000-pound food equivalent). 

SW HOPE is fun for everyone, featuring events that allow neighbors to get involved to fight hunger together. Mark your calendars for:
