Mike Fortney with the Center of Hope recently presented a program to the Livingston Lions Club where he provided an update on the center’s activities. The center’s food bank pantry, which is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays. served approximately 18,000 people last year and has seen a 44% increase in the number of people. Through Campaign 300, the center assisted approximately one-third of the families that came in needing financial assistance with utilities. The center’s cancer support ministry assists with logistics and meal costs for patients needing treatment. They also have quarterly meals with guest speakers that patients can attend. The bus ministry delivers food to families that are unable to come to the food pantry and to pick people up to bring them in. They transport about 30 people per month. The Emergency Health Board Ministry assists 20-30 people per month with gas, prescriptions and personal items. The clothing ministry has served over 530 family members this year. It is presently closed but will reopen when inventory is available. The Christmas of Hope Empty Stocking Ministry served 600 children with over 5,000 gifts in 2022, allowing parents to shop for their children and gift wrap the items before they leave.
