We wish a wonderful day of blessings to all fathers here and beyond, and to the people who may not be fathers but serve as role models, cheerleaders, surrogate parents and more to those they love. Happy Father's Day!
Our Food Pantry is in need of a few specific items this month! We're heading into the summer, which is generally a slow time for Food Pantry donations. Please consider helping us by donating some of these items and helping feed our families, especially those with children who rely on school breakfast and lunch during the school year. Standard sizes of items to feed/care for a family of four are appreciated. Thank you!
We are always so appreciative of our community's efforts to feed our neighbors in need. With summer's warm weather here, we wanted to remind our generous donors to please not leave food donations - cooked food for the Community Kitchen and non-perishables for the Food Pantry - outside the Community Kitchen building at 50 Nichols Street on weekends.
Today, we honor and show gratitude for the courageous Americans who paid the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our country and freedom. Thank you.

March is National Association of Social Workers Social Worker Month (and March 19 was World Social Work Day)! Operation Hope is incredibly fortunate to have a wonderful team of MSW-level clinical social workers (some are pictured in this photo!) who confront some of the most challenging issues facing individuals, families, communities and society. Thank you to these women and men who, day in and day out, forge solutions that help those we serve reach their full potential and make our community a better place to live.
