$500 change jug stolen from Oakwood neighborhood community outreach

The City of Hope Outreach, founded in the Oakwood Trailer Park off East Robins Street in Conway, was burglarized late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, according to a CPD incident report released this morning.

City of Hope is a non-profit ministry founded by Phillip Fletcher and his family to serve “the poor, single-parent homes and veterans,” according to information on its website, cityhopeoutreach.com. Someone smashed the front door’s window and stole a water jug that had been used to collect change and loose bills — about $500 worth, according to the report. Everything else in the building seemed to be in order except the front door, which will be about $300 to replace.

City of Hope provides transitional housing, seminars on community involvement directed at local churches and those who serve the poor and homeless, year-round lessons to improve child literacy and internet access to promote learning and help people find jobs — all in the Oakwood neighborhood. The organization also does work in the Brookside neighborhood, among other places in Conway.
