Volunteers gear up to give Hope House a makeover on National Service Recognition Day

On Tuesday, KXLY 4’s Mark Peterson and the Extreme Team, as well as 60 other volunteers will make necessary improvements to Spokane’s Hope House as a part of National Service Recognition Day.

In 2017, the shelter helped close to 300 needy women in Spokane by providing them with beds to sleep in, a warm shower and meals. Additionally, case managers work with the women to get to the root of their homelessness and work to get the women they help in to permanent housing.

All day Tuesday, volunteers will do things like paint the walls of Hope House, install new sinks and curtains, clean carpets and organize the clothes bank.

National Service Recognition day is a part of a bigger effort to get citizens to give back to the Spokane community. April is Spokane Gives month. All month long, volunteers will give thousands of hours of their time to hundreds of organizations.

Volunteer opportunities with Hope House and Spokane Gives are on going and range in things like age requirements and indoor/outdoor.
