PRATTVILLE, Ala. (February 14, 2017) – The Harbor at Hickory Hill 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.

Team members, residents and family members of The Harbor at Hickory Hill are all pitching in to put together 50 boxes to send to the disadvantaged children in need.

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.

As we fill these boxes, we pray peace and comfort over each child that will receive a box,” Christy Goodwin, executive director of The Harbor at Hickory Hill, said.
