             Hope 4 Kids 

                           On behalf of Hope 4 Kids, we wanted to thank each and every one of you that has donated and/or volunteered for H4k over the past year.  We served 5 schools and approximately 80 students throughout the school year.  While the past few years have provided us with many obstacles and challenges, we still found a way to give back to the students in our community. Thank you!!!  If you are interested in volunteering for a position or packing in the fall, please email or text 540-742-4024.
