Legacy Village of Cleveland Partners with Hope for Appalachia to Prepare ‘Hope Boxes’ for Disadvantaged Children in Southeastern Kentucky and Southwestern Virginia

CLEVELAND, Tenn. (March 22, 2018) – Legacy Village of Cleveland partnered with its sister facility, Renaissance Assisted Living of Greene County, in Stanardsville, Va., in support of Hope for Appalachia, by sending “Hope Boxes” to the poverty-stricken areas of Southeastern Kentucky and Southwestern Virginia.

Hope for Appalachia is a collaborative group of churches, businesses and individuals that deliver boxes to the children of these poverty-stricken areas. Teams based in North Carolina and Kentucky each coordinate an annual trip to these impoverished areas in Kentucky and Virginia to deliver the boxes.  The Hope Boxes, about the size of a shoebox, are filled with supplies such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, warm clothes, school supplies and toys.

Team members of Legacy Village of Cleveland pitched in to put together Hope Boxes to send to the disadvantaged children in need. With the help from local Bradley County High School Freshmen Student Council, Lee University’s service club, Sigma Nu Sigma, ladies of Naomi Baptist Church and Cleveland, Tenn. community members, Legacy Village of Cleveland gathered over 200 Hope Boxes.

“We are so excited and humbled that we have the opportunity to partner with our sister facilities in Virginia to benefit these children in need. As we fill these boxes, we pray peace and comfort over each child that will receive a box,” Shannon Alvey, executive director of Legacy Village of Cleveland, said.
