Working shoulder to shoulder with a growing volunteer pool, Hopewell Love, an ecumenical Christian nonprofit in the Douglassville and Birdsboro areas, functions as a clearinghouse for people in need.
Hopewell Love partners with more than 20 local churches and community groups and agencies. The mission of Hopewell Love is to reach out to those in need and to offer local volunteers concrete and meaningful ways to offer their time and talent. The emphasis is service to others and a greater sense of community.
Hopewell Love runs a food pantry, holds community dinners twice each month, distributes clothing, refers people in need to local sources of financial assistance, runs a crafting group for seniors and heads up the local Laundry Love ministry.
Its mission, with an average of 80 volunteers working an average of 400 hours a month, is to transform lives by emphasizing partnerships that stress working together for the common good.
