For over ten years, Chimney Rock Public Power District (CRPPD) customers facing cancer have reached out to The Festival of Hope for help paying their mortgage or rent and utility bills. This year CRPPD gave back to The Festival of Hope by raising over $2,000 in a community raffle.
The Festival of Hope is a volunteer organization that helps cancer patients in the Regional West Medical Center service area pay their non-medical expenses. Gifts such as these allow patients and their families an opportunity to focus their time and finances on getting well.
If you’d like to donate your time or make a contribution to The Festival of Hope, the next event is scheduled for Saturday June 18 at the Scotts Bluff County Fairgrounds in Mitchell, Nebraska. Visit their website for a full event schedule or for information on how to volunteer. If you or someone you know in the Panhandle or eastern Wyoming is facing cancer and needs financial assistance, The Festival of Hope may be able to help.
