Hope’s Christmas Town is an annual giving event designed by Mount Hope Community members to bring back the Spirit of Giving during the holiday season.  “We want to make Christmas special for the Mount Hope community and show them what Christmas is all about, Christ’s Love for us,” Jennifer Kessinger, founding organizer.  This event sees an annual average attendance of well over 1,200 visitors coming from as far away as Lincoln County and Nicholas County, West Virginia.  With your support, we hope to improve the quality of life for more Southern West Virginia Community Members this Christmas season.

Hope’s Christmas Town would not be possible if it were not for our wonderful volunteers! Pictured above, the group poses after enjoying brunch with the community at the Mount Hope Regional Band’s annual fundraising event.
