The village child project is more than half way to its fundraising goal. It’s sponsored by WEZQ and Hands of Hope Thrift Store. The money raised will pay for recreational events for children in local group homes. These kids have endured sexual, physical and emotional abuse. Recreational activities give them a chance to have fun, build self esteem, and trust. The goal is to raise $20,000. So far the project has collected $11,000.
