Hope 7 - End of Year Giving  - 


Currently, Hope 7 Food Pantry is running out of funding and food costs are rising. Normally, The Rensselaer Club requests donations for Hope 7's Adopt-a-Family Christmas program, but this year their need for Food Pantry funding is more dire. Please give if you can.
