Kossuth Palo Alto Economic Development Corporation's Project Hope is underway 

Kossuth/Palo Alto County Economic Development Corporation has launched their annual Project Hope Campaign.

Executive Director Maureen Elbert says the project provides personal health care products for those in need.  "This is actually the 21st year that we are having Project Hope.  This is our Intern Volunteer Program, and it impacts all over our area.  When we talk about those that are in need, it is those that have either been removed from their home and have to foster care, this is helping the shelters, this is helping those that have had fires, this is helping school systems for those of their students that they know need these different types of personal products."

She adds that there are a couple of ways to donate to the project.  "Contact our office, and they can either donate money going towards it and we will buy the products, or they can go to Dollar General in Swea City, Graettinger or Emmetsburg, and assist us with purchasing their products that could go toward Project Hope.  So, we have about a two week window of time to be able to give a really good impact we hope."

The Project Hope Campaign will run through July 3rd.
