The Hopewell Moose Lodge 1472 along with other charitable organizations in the area combined to provide a dinner meal to the Needy in Hopewell, VA. Each week the Lodge feeds many who need a helping hand. Cindy King heads up the initiative and coordinates with the local group known as "Chance" to contribute to the cause. Many Lodge members, both women and men contribute to this cause like Lee Dixon, Ray Shaffer Sr, Melisa Carter and Mary Sue Langley donate their time to support this weekly event. This group of eager volunteers feed over anywhere from 25-30 each week.
