Cars, crafters needed for Hope event

Cars and crafts—what a combination! Hope Community Church of Rockford will be hosting a unique event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on October 1. Cars and Crafts for Hope is a benefit to raise funds and collect food for North Kent Community Services, who serves our neighbors in need every day, providing food, clothing and household goods, nutrition counseling and other services.

The Craft Fair vendors will be displaying their wares inside the worship center, classic cars of all ages will be exhibited on the grounds, and the The Silver Spork (new to Rockford) will be offering food and beverages.

If you are interested in being an exhibitor, please visit Hope’s website to download a craft vendor application, or crafters contact Maddie at (616) 285-4690 and car owners contact Michael at (616) 874-1553. Advance car registration is required because spaces are limited. Hope is located at 7000 Myers Lake Avenue NE, Rockford, a quarter mile north of Belding Road/M-44. For more information, visit Hope Community’s website at or call (616) 874-4673.
