Hope Network Side by Side Adult Day Services is partnering with the West Grand Neighborhood Organization to provide school supplies to the children in our community! All supplies will go to benefit the children of Harrison Park School. Please drop off supplies to the drop off locations by Friday, August 10! 

This effort was the brain child of a Harrison Park parent and resident of the West Grand Neighborhood! Tennille had the vision and took the initiative to apply for a Neighborhood Match Fund and got it with our full support. Hope Network Side by Side reached out to WGNO at the perfect moment and offered their support, along with Brann's Steakhouse and Grill offering to serve as an additional drop off location. It is now up to us as a community to match the goal of $2500 in school supplies, donations and volunteer hours!
