Delta Hope House receives record breaking donations

The Thanksgiving holiday season has been overwhelmingly special for the volunteers at the Delta Hope House in Cooper, Texas.

Friday, Nov.  18 was beyond ordinary – it was extraordinary – as they received 1.3 tons of donated food from North Hopkins Independent School District’s Beta Club “Block the Door” event. Students were challenged to bring enough canned items as well as flour, sugar, jelly and peanut butter to block the classroom door of a teacher.

NHISD Superintendent Donna George explained it will help with district growth over the last two years.

Resuming their positions on the Cooper Independent School District Board of Trustees will be Thomas Darden and Blake Randle for full three-year terms along with an unexpired term for Anita Moody.
