HOPE Inc. The Task Force on Domestic Violence, has announced the beginning of a major fundraising campaign — “Bringing New HOPE to Those Who Need It Most.” Funds from this effort will be used to renovate and furnish a new shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
The new shelter will help HOPE Inc. provide services to those who are in need of a safe haven as they transition to a new life.
To celebrate the beginning of the campaign, HOPE Inc. will host a fundraising kick-off dinner at the Bridgeport Conference Center on Wednesday, Dec. 17, at 6 p.m. The special guest speaker will be former West Virginia first lady Gayle C. Manchin. Mrs. Manchin was a founding member of the Task Force on Domestic Violence, and she will reveal the first major donors to the campaign.
