The Hospitality House is teaming up with the Honor Card Program to help raise funds to help area homeless.


According to Hospitality House officials, the Honor Card features a painting by William Magnum, who is a well-respected North Carolina-based artist.

Magnum was introduced to the world of homelessness when he was approached by a homeless man at a fast food restaurant in Greensboro.  Magnum bought the man breakfast, took him to the local shelter, and ultimately became his caregiver for the next three years.

With a donation of $5 or more, a person will receive an Honor Card to send to a friend or loved one indicating that they have been honored by a donation to the Hospitality House.

Director of Development for the Hospitality House said the Honor Card is a wonderful way to recognize a friend or family member this holiday season while giving a meaningful gift to someone in need.

Honor Cards are now available at the Hospitality House; Wachovia Bank branches in Boone, Blowing Rock, and Wilkesboro; Mast General Stores in Boone and Valle Crucis; Boone Drug locations in Boone; Blackberry Creek Mattress Outlet; Higher Grounds Coffee Shop; Boone Bike & Touring; Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff; the office of Rob Angle, attorney; The Shoppes at Farmer’s Hardware; Laura’s Yarn-Tastic, and several local churches.
