Gingerbread house decorating event spices up holiday season
Residents from the Lake Villa and Lindenhurst, Ill., area kicked off the holiday season by supporting One Hope United at last week’s Gingerbread Houses of Hope event. OHU provided houses and decorations galore for participants to create their masterpieces.
This event has raised more than $2,000 for the agency since it was started by OHU board members Scott and Becky Moeller and their family in 2009.
“We are thankful for the support of the Moellers and those who participate in this annual event for taking time during the hectic holiday season to help families in need,” said Mark McHugh, executive director of One Hope United Northern Region. “Events like this ripple through the community as a reminder that everyone can help make a difference.”
