Hope Mission Just like all of you we suffered through Hurricane Florence. While we did close down to the public for a while due to the storm, we stayed in the kitchen with the men and women from the recovery system and the men from the shelter. The women in the women’s shelter were able to safely stay at their house and come to the mission for hot meals once the storm was over. On Monday September 17, 2018 with just our generators running we were able to open the mission to the public again.
We served 477 meals while we operated on generator power alone. In the aftermath of the storm Pastor Gene McLendon and a group of volunteers from Hope Recovery Homes along with some groups throughout our community worked tirelessly to help clean up the devastation left by Hurricane Florence.
