Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield thanks all those who participated in Operation Hope Tote. During the month of March, the church community collected more than 400 personal items — including toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, deodorant and razors and more — to assist the Springfield Rescue Mission.
These items have been distributed in filled bags to the poor and homeless during the Easter season, allowing people to clean up on the outside and know inside that someone, somewhere cares about them. The items had a total estimated value of $830.00. Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield again thanks all those who donated their time, talent and items for this special effort.
