On July 13-14. Lenawee Broadcasting’s WLEN-FM (Adrian) hosted “Hoping for a Home,” a 24-hour event that raised funds and awareness for the new Neighbors of Hope Women and Children’s Center. The center is being formed to assist homeless women in Lenawee County with housing and transition while keeping their families together. Over $11,000 was raised in 24 hours.
WLEN staff, Neighbors of Hope board members, NOH men’s mission residents and area business people stood curbside and collected funds. The funds will support the renovation of the center which is located in Tecumseh, Mich., as well as on-going center expenses. County National Bank supported the effort as the title sponsor. Neighbors of Hope is a Lenawee County non-profit organization that supports the community through the Men’s Ministry Fresh Start and Life Change Programs, Blessings and More Resale Store, Fishes and Loaves Food Pantry, the Third Day Farming Program and Word Made Flesh Radio Ministry which airs Sunday mornings at on the station.
