August 2012 Hope Community partnered with the Fort Collins Church Network and Convoy of Hope to bring material help to people in Fort Collins. This day of sharing hope was totally funded by the church in Fort Collins. 1,200 volunteers served 3,800 honored guests; providing free groceries, health service—dental exams, eye exams, breast cancer screening—haircuts, family portraits and lunch. Most importantly, in a prayer tent people were introduced to Jesus.
