Members of the Rotary Club of Winchester recently heard about the Grace Center of Hope, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization created to be a community center for school aged children.

Lyndi Bean, the Center’s director, shared her passion and information about the nonprofit with the Rotary Club of Winchester.

The Center recently opened at 912 South College St. in Winchester and provides a safe place for children to go after school and in the summer. The goal is to share Christian love with all children in our community.

This summer, the Center is open three days a week from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. offering the children crafts, reading, singing and other recreational activities.

Working in conjunction with the University of the South, the children are given a nutritious lunch.

Volunteers who are willing to share their talents and donations to help the Center throughout the school year are needed. The Center is also seeking individuals who share their passion to serve as board members.

Those interested in helping the Center’s efforts to be a safe place for children may contact them by phone at 931-636-9546 or by email at gracentertn@gmail.com.
