Community Campaign Nov. 15

 Volunteers for Hope College will visit area businesses to raise funds for the college during Hope's annual Holland/Zeeland Community Campaign on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

The campaign is part of an annual effort by
business people in Holland and Zeeland to raise funds for
current operations.

This year's chair is Jacqueline Hoover, who is
area franchise CEO with Manpower Inc.

"Hope College has been a great community citizen;
a great neighbor to have in town," she said. "It's a
college that's committed."

"Hope has great students--great kids with high
integrity," Hoover said. "They've been a joy for me to work
with personally and professionally."

The campaign will begin with a breakfast Wednesday
morning at the college's Haworth Inn and Conference Center.
From 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., approximately 40 fund-raising teams
comprised of business leaders paired with members of the
Hope faculty and staff will contact about 250 area
businesses.
