Herrin Family Fun Day
HERRIN -- The Herrin House of Hope held it's second annual Family Fun Day on Sunday. Hundreds of people showed up to the event at Herrin Park where there was food, music, and games.
The Herrin House of Hope is an organization that combines more than a dozen Herrin churches to help the community. The group will open the doors to its new building on Monday. So far, organizers say the response has been more than they could have asked for.
"I hear folks go on and on talking about the event, and talk about the program and how much it's a blessing to the community. The community itself to come together and serve. Serve, that's what it's all about," says John Steve, the House of Hope director.
The donations gathered at the event will go toward daily expenses, as well as keeping the shelves of its soup kitchen stocked.
