Renaissance Senior Living of Vero Beach Partners with Hope for Appalachia to Prepare ‘Hope Boxes’ for Disadvantaged Children in Southeastern Kentucky and Southwestern Virginia
VERO BEACH, Fla. (March 28, 2018) – Renaissance Senior Living of Vero Beach is partnering 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.
Team members, residents and family members of Renaissance Senior Living all pitched in to put together 50 Hope Boxes to send to the disadvantaged children in need.
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.
“My heart is warmed to be able to help these impoverished areas of Kentucky and Virginia that are in dire need of warm clothes, food and supplies. We are so excited to 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,” Liz Earman, executive director of Renaissance Senior Living of Vero Beach, said.
