Renaissance Marquis Partners with Hope for Appalachia to Prepare ‘Hope Boxes’ for Disadvantaged Children in Southeastern Kentucky and Southwestern Virginia
ROME, Ga. (March 27, 2018) – Renaissance Marquis Retirement Community 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.
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.
Team members, residents and family members of Renaissance Marquis all pitched in to put together 135 boxes to send to the disadvantaged children in need.
“We are excited and humbled to have the opportunity to partner with our sister facilities in Virginia for the third year to benefit these children in need. As we fill these boxes, we pray peace and comfort over each child that will receive a box,” Blake Ray, executive director of Renaissance Marquis, said.
