The House of Hope is a non-profit organization through Interfaith Hospitality Network and the Presbyterian Church of Toms River. They help women that have been displaced through domestic violence, loss of a job, etc. and families that can no longer supply sufficient food and clothing for the members of their family. Georgian Court was asked to bring volunteers from the Women in Leadership Development program on Monday, October 15th from 5pm to 9pm to the Woodlake Country Club in Lakewood for the Night of Hope. The Night of Hope was a gift auction and Chef inspired food tasting. Tickets were sold to the community and an estimated 200 people attended the event. The WILD women were asked to help in serving food and ticket sales for 50/50 and to help navigate the incoming people who needed assistance. Select WILD women volunteered their time to help those who were less fortunate. Being a leader is a selfless act and for the WILD women who volunteered on October 15th, they did just that. WILD women are the root of selfless volunteerism at Georgian Court University.
