The Sallal Grange raised $1,000 for the non-profit House of Hope, a local shelter for women and children, at its recent Valentine’s Dance.

Marcia Reinhart, director of Mama’s Hands House of Hope, spoke at the event, saying that donations drop off post-holidays, so that fundraising at this time of year was particularly appreciated.

A new Sallal member and candy-maker provided chocolate roses for attendees as well as each head of family at the House of Hope.

The program at Mama’s Hands is rigorous, but less than 10 percent of those who participate return to public housing. Each client must get and maintain a job, maintain a savings account, manage finances, and participate in counseling sessions.
