GIVING H.O.P.E.



Project H.O.P.E. (Help Our People Eat) Director Pam Stephan and Treasurer Louise Bucco recently spoke to the Rotary Club of Houghton Lake. Project HOPE is an all volunteer organization that helps the residents of Roscommon by maintaining a food bank. People in need can come to the food bank if they meet the following criteria: live below the federal poverty guidelines and/or are unable to meet their living expenses, are pregnant, have an acute or chronic illness or disability, are homeless, have lost a source of income or have not been to the food bank in the past month. Stephan said 10,154 clients were served in 2010, down slightly from 2009. She noted that clients now served are in greater need and senior citizens make up approximately 25% of clients. Project H.O.P.E. is located in the basement of the old Denton Township Hall in Prudenville. For information or directions, call 366-5120. Hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and 12:30-2 p.m. and Tuesday from 3-6 p.m. Pictured is Rotary President Kim Akin presenting Stephan and Bucco with a $2,500 donation to Project H.O.P.E.
