LBC alumni accepting donations for Hope basket

For the fourth consecutive year, the Blair County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Blair County Alumni will accept donations for its Basket of Hope project.

Basket of Hope is designed to help families and individuals, who are survivors of domestic violence, start new lives. Many of these families, served through Family Services Inc. of Blair County, often leave with only the clothes on their backs. Through Basket of Hope, these families are given a laundry basket filled with the basic needs, such as cleaning supplies and personal hygiene products.

Donations of common household goods can be dropped off at the Blair County Chamber of Commerce office located at 3900 Industrial Park Drive, Altoona, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Aug. 26-29.

For more information, call the chamber at 943-8151.
