All ages are a part of our Wall of Fame: On September 7th Lucas organized and held his first art show to benefit the homeless in Lancaster County. At the time Lucas we only 8 years old. We are the proud owners of “Hope” beautifully painted by Faith. (pictured below) The show was a resounding success and every piece of art submitted was sold!!! Proceeds from the show benefit the Lancaster County Homelessness Coalition and Church World Services. Thank you so much Lucas for your kind heart and being such a light in our community. We love you!
