New Durant Store Offers Hope To Those In Need


The Burkhalter family is making a difference in the Durant community. They founded Families Feeding Families that works to feed the hungry. And now, they're taking up another cause. They recently opened a business called the Hope Chest.

People can donate items that are in good condition, and in turn folks who need help can come into the store and pick up those items for free.

Tish Burkhalter says the store will hopefully bring hope to the people who have lost their belongings in a fire or a disaster or just people who are down on their luck and need a helping hand.

Right now they are looking for volunteers and donations, including children's clothing that is back-to-school appropriate, business attire, shoes and undergarments.

The store is located on 114 S. 7th Avenue. An official grand opening is scheduled for Tuesday.
