On December 12 Santa was seen attending the Hope Fund parties not only at The Grove but also the Civic Center in Wimauma. He was said to have arrived with presents for each and every child.
How did this jolly ol’ soul know what each of the many children would wish for this Christmas? There is a rumor that their mentors, tutors and readers may have colluded and whispered their secrets to him. In any case, a good time was had by all!
The Hope Fund is a non-profit 501c3 tax-exempt organization run entirely by volunteers dedicated to helping Wimauma school children learn, grow and have fun in a safe and nurturing environment.
Anyone interested in joining or obtaining more information can call at 813-634-4268 or 813-634-1247. Mentors, tutors and readers are always needed to work with the children on a one-on-one basis.
