The very first agency that we chose to support, way back in 2011, was New Hope for Families, which at the time was a very newly established shelter for families that are experiencing homelessness. As you know, once an agency is chosen for our support, it is not eligible to be nominated again for two years. At our August meeting last week, member Emily Pike, the current executive director of New Hope, made an eloquent, informative, and stirring plea, and we once again voted to support New Hope with our quarterly donations. Congratulations, Emily! Donations to be presented on August 21st.
