Sulphur Springs High School students enrolled in the Interior Design and Culinary Arts programs recently helped to plan, decorate, and prepare food for the Heart of Hope 8th annual Fall Fundraiser, “A Festival for Life,” held Sept. 24 at Hopkins County Civic Center.
Interior Design students were able to work with Heart of Hope to design how the banquet area would be decorated, made decorations, and decorated Hopkins County Civic Center. Culinary Arts students provided Latin-themed appetizers/hors d’oeuvres and refreshments for the event. Instructors for the classes are Christina Davis and Pam Carter.
The guest speaker for the fundraiser was Lee Strobel, author of “A Case for Christ.”
Heart of Hope is a free pregnancy resource center in Sulphur Springs that offers support to expectant mothers and fathers. Services provided at the center include a free pregnancy test, one free sonogram, and parenting classes if the mother and/or father are interested. Earn While You Learn classes teaches participants about their pregnancy, how to take care of themselves and their baby, and techniques to be a successful parent. While participating in the classes, they also receive “Mommy/Daddy” dollars they can use to purchase baby supplies from the facility’s “Baby Boutique.” Heart of Hope also performs adoption referrals and post abortion support.
