Our 1st newsletter of 2019 is dedicated to our friends and partners-old and new-that made the 2018 holiday season especially bright for Hope Street Margolis Family Center children and families.
Appeal Banner
The holiday season started off with a wonderful early Thanksgiving lunch provided to over 350 Hope Street children and parents by Nashuva, a spiritual community. Families also received food baskets and holiday gifts. Hope Street Director, Vickie Kropenske, presented Rabbi Naomi Levy with a plaque that read "We were strangers and you welcomed us" to thank Nashuva volunteers for preparing and serving the Thanksgiving feast for 14 years.
