VENICE- ‘Giving Hope’ a Venice non-profit is running out of hope but if they shut down, so will an essential resource.
Since the construction on U.S-41 bypass which began about a year ago, it caused sales at their main shop in North Venice to see a massive decline in sales.
The South Venice location receives some its funding from the North location, which provides clothes, shower and laundry to the homeless.
At the back of the shop, there’s “Venice Moms Helping Hands” that is ran by Alyssa Reinbolt, a mother herself who started the resource center to help other mothers in need.
She provides, food, baby formula, diapers and anything a mother could need.
She’s worried that if “Giving Hope” shuts its doors, so will she.
