Springield's Ace Hardware offers "Hope Plaques" designed by Hope School Students

Ace Hardware, located on Wabash Avenue in Springfield, recently asked the Hope School Vocational Department if students would help decorate a number of plain stone plaques for Christmas displays as part of their on-the-job training program. Hope students assisted by hand-painting the stone plaques that have now been placed around Christmas trees throughout the store. Ace Hardware has now renamed these newly decorated stones "Hope Plaques" and announced that 100% of the proceeds from the sales of Hope Plaques will benefit the The Hope Institute for Children and Families.

Hope Plaques are available for $5 at Ace Hardware on Wabash Avenue. The Hope Institute would like thank Ace Hardware for their support of The Hope Institute for Children and Families. In addition, we want to recognize the student, staff, and job coaches for their hard work and students whose hard work went into making the Hope Plaques.
