Ruth Harris is pictured with her daughter Deb at Hope Ministries' Hope Café where they participated in a Memorial Meal in memory of Ruth's late husband Eugene. Eugene and Ruth were married 64 years before his passing. They have been long-time benefactors of Hope Ministries helping us care for homeless & hungry men, women and children. Our shelter and meal guests expressed their sincere thanks to Ruth & Deb as they helped serve the meal and enjoyed fellowship during lunch.

A Memorial Meal provides donor families a hands-on opportunity to experience our work with the less fortunate in our community while we honor the legacy of their loved one and their support for our mission. For more information about Memorial Meals contact us at (515) 414-0957 or email
