Book Donation for Side By Side Ministries

You may soon see The Magic Schoolbus at Hope – or at least a bin that resembles the fictional bus.  Please donate books to the bin by July 3! We are collecting new and gently used books for children and middle schoolers, which we will give to Side by Side Ministries during the youth event in July.
