tents needed for family shelter

Church of Hope is teaming up once again with Mary's Place to provide emergency shelter for families April 30 - May 7. We're looking for donations of tents of any size (new or in good condition) to give the families a bit of privacy while they are staying in the basement. Please contact Darla at 722-5651 if you have a tent to donate — or if you'd like to volunteer! (Online signup at http://vols.pt/495).
