A painting of a stranger making his way toward a snow-covered bench is being used to bring hope to local homeless people seeking shelter this winter.
Titled “Hope in Front of Me,” the work by artist William Mangum is featured on the Honor Card, a holiday season fundraiser for homeless shelters. This year’s card takes its name from a song by former “American Idol” contestant Danny Gokey, who sings of hope ahead in spite of brokenness and struggle. “This song has an amazing symbolism of the journey that the homeless and needy encounter each day,”
Greenville, North Carolina’s homeless shelter, Community Crossroads Center, unveiled this year’s card at St. James United Methodist Church.
