Center of Hope debuts catalog

(Continued)

WEATHERFORD —

“Our catalog shows you what each donation you make can do,” Livingston said. “For instance, $25 buys a crock pot and a meal for a kid in Camp Hope. We teach them to cook and they can go home and cook for their families.

“So many things we take for granted on how we were raised or how we raise our own children.”

Memorial donations, previously known as the Tree of Hope, may also be made, in honor of friends and loved ones.

With the help of North Side Baptist, which has helped Center of Hope print its catalog at a discounted rate, the non-profit has seen a tremendous increase in donations,

“It’s been a hit. We’ve hit about the same number at the beginning of this month than we did at the end of last year,” Livingston said. “Of course, we still have some people who do it the old-fashioned way and mail the donation in, and we’ve had a lot of people donate online.

“This is definitely something we want to continue to do in the future, since it’s been so well-received.”

Businesses and churches can also get involved with Center of Hope, by contacting them at 817-594-0266.
