Tent of Hope 2012
Residents of Savage and surrounding communities can receive a hot lunch, clothing, a haircut and more, all free of charge June 23.
Since 2007, the local nonprofit Walk On Waters Ministries has partnered with area churches to bring the Tent of Hope to Savage during Dan Patch Days. The Tent of Hope is a one-day, community-building event that connects those in need with local ministries and other resources that can help.
Each year hundreds have attended, but this year ten churches and ministries are working to make the event bigger than ever.
For no charge, participants will receive a hot lunch, a bag of groceries, clothing, a haircut, a family portrait and a blood pressure check. There will also be information on resources available year-round.
The Tent of Hope is 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at Bridgewood Church, 6201 W. 135th St., Savage, across the street from the Dan Patch Days celebration in McColl Park.
Walk On Waters Ministries is looking to expand the Tent of Hope to other communities.
