Hope for Ardmore Aims to Serve Thousands


ARDMORE, OK -- "There was a time that we were in that place, that we needed help."

When a back injury took away Scott Moore's ability to work, his perspective shifted.

"It's very tough. It's not as easy as what people think. We did have some income, but not a lot and we still had all our previous bills from when I worked. And it really just changed our focus to the compassion ministry," said Moore.

So he and his wife Jennifer formed Ignite Ministries. They're gearing up for this year's Hope For Ardmore event.

"We do a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal. We're going to offer toys for all the kids that show up. We provide haircuts, hygiene boxes, coats, underwear and socks for the kids," Moore said.

Before they serve, they need others to join the calling.

"Any aspect they want to help, they can. Of course we'll need help prior to the event as well in getting the food donations and the hygiene box donations and monetary support, of course."

November first at 6:30, volunteers will meet at the New Hope Church of God. The meeting is open to anyone interested in helping along the way. Moore believes there is something for everyone.

"It was completely overwhelming. Everyone who volunteered went away touched. Of course, the people who came were amazed."
