Mechanicsburg Borough Presents Check to New Hope Ministries
MECHANICSBURG (May 8, 2019) – Council Member, John Anthony, presented a check in the amount of $2,603.94 to Molly Helmstetter, Director of Development at New Hope Ministries. The donation was from the 2018 Community Day at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Park, in which New Hope was selected as the Charity of Choice to receive a portion of the proceeds.
The event was created in an attempt to recreate a simpler time of life when families visited the local park to enjoy time together and be with others in the community. Community Day is organized in collaboration between the Mechanicsburg Borough and Area Churches. The 2019 Community Day will be held on Saturday, August 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Park. The event includes Food Trucks, Chicken BBQ, Free Pool Admission, Children’s Activities, Local Vendors and much more!
