The Herald offers 'Gift of Hope' series

Need a little hope this morning? I know I sure do. Well, we're finding that it's pretty easy to find a lot of people in our community who are giving that gift of hope.

So we've started a series of stories in this holiday season to share some of these amazing efforts with our readers. Our hope: that it will stir others to give.

Reporter Timothy Wolfrum has had several stories already, including today's 1A feature on a Palmetto couple with an unusual twist on hunting. Gary Plum and his 14-year-old son are avid hunters. So Missy Plum, mom-wife-accountant, came up with their Gift of Hope: a local chapter of Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry, a national outreach program that seeks donations of venison and other big-game meat for food banks and other charitable organizations.

We've started a collection of our Gift of Hope stories at

If you have a story to share, please leave a comment or email me at

Here's hoping...
