Antonelli College visits Homes of Hope for Christmas
Students, Faculty and Staff of Antonelli College spent an evening making the holiday season a little brighter for the children living at Homes of Hope. Kim Richardson, Dwanna Toney, Judy Edwards, Johna Barker and Joseph Starkey visited the facility bringing Santa Claus, pizza and goodies to the 14 children housed at the facility.
Homes of Hope for Children is the vision of Dr. Michael Garrett .The mission of Homes of Hope for Children is to serve children in crisis throughout Mississippi by providing strong, Christian homes to every child that lives on campus while ensuring that each child is loved unconditionally and has their physical, spiritual and emotional needs met. They have one home for boys and one home for girls. Seven children live in each home with a set of full-time house parents.
Antonelli College donated a Christmas tree to the girl’s cottage, digital cameras for both cottages, pajamas and stockings for all the children, gifts for the house parents, as well as gift cards for Christmas dinner. “All of us were moved by the experience to say the least,” said Kim Richardson, Dean of Students, “we colored, ate pizza, and played derby cars in the middle of the den.”
Antonelli College is committed to helping their students grow both personally and professionally by teaching students to give back to their community.Continue reading
