Hospitality House to Work with Artist and Honor Card Program to Raise Funds to Help Homeless PDF Print

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.
