Night of HOPE to Benefit Tutoring Program
H.O.P.E. Tutoring Center invites the Arlington community to their annual Night of HOPE on Saturday, April 14, 6:30pm, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 1200 W. Green Oaks Blvd., Arlington 76013. The H.O.P.E. tutoring program has been a mission of FPCA for 17 years with over 30 members of our congregation participating in the program.
Guests will enjoy an On The Border buffet dinner followed by entertainment provided by the Sam Houston High School Mariachi Band. The keynote speaker will be Stephanie Gillespie, Arlington Police Dept. – Community Support Manager, will speak on the topic “Every Child Needs One Committed Adult” and Jim Douglas, retired WFAA reporter, will be the master of ceremonies. A silent auction including Arlington City Rangers suite plus MORE will add to the enjoyment of the evening.
Proceeds from this annual event will be used to help H.O.P.E. Tutoring Center continue to provide free individual tutoring to Arlington students in grades 3rd – 8th who may be “at risk” academically.
Comments by students and volunteers testify to the success of this individual tutoring provided by H.O.P.E. “My tutor is always giving me encouragement,” says a current student. “No matter how much I don’t get it, my tutor never gives up on me.”
A current tutor comments, “My most meaningful situation was when my student brought in her report card, and I could visibly see that her grades had improved.”
