Legacy Village at Plantation Manor Partners with Hope for Appalachia to Prepare ‘Hope Boxes’ for Disadvantaged Children in Appalachian Region

Legacy Village at Plantation Manor Fills 75 “Hope Boxes” of Donated School Supplies, Small Toys and Toiletries

THOMASVILLE, Ga. (March 25, 2019) - Legacy Village at Plantation Manor, a senior living and memory care facility serving the Thomasville area, has partnered with the community in support of Hope for Appalachia by sending 75 “Hope Boxes” to children living in poverty-stricken areas of the Appalachian Region including Virginia, Kentucky, West Virginia and North Carolina.

The Hope Boxes, each about the size of a shoebox, are filled with supplies such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, school supplies and toys.

“I am so humbled by our residents, community, and team members for their support of the Hope for Appalachia charity mission this year. We were able to send 75 Hope Boxes, more than we have ever sent before, to some of the most underprivileged children in America. I am truly grateful to everyone who participated,” said Deidre Yates, executive director of Legacy Village at Plantation Manor.

First Newark Baptist Church and the wider Thomasville community assisted the Legacy Village at Plantation Manor staff, residents and families in lifting up the disadvantaged children of Appalachia with their donations of gifts, time and work.

Hope for Appalachia is a collaborative group of churches, businesses and individuals who deliver the boxes to the impoverished communities. Teams based in North Carolina, Kentucky and Virginia coordinate an annual trip to serve the children and their families.
