Story of Hope: On February 27, 2014, Hope Partnership for Education honored donors who made gifts to the Capital Campaign by unveiling its donor recognition wall in the main lobby of the Education Center. During the luncheon that followed Nina Zuccarelli, COO for Meyer Capital Group and Secretary of Hope’s Board of Trustees shared a personal comment. She and her husband Frank have been associated with Hope Partnership almost since its inception, she shared her story of the impact Hope has had on their lives.

“Years ago at the annual Friendraiser, Frank and I bid on a piece of art created by a quiet, shy young girl.  As the bidding for the piece increased throughout the evening, her family member who was in attendance was brought to tears seeing someone recognize the accomplishment and beauty created by this young, aspiring child. Years later, this confident, successful young woman won a scholarship to a local art college.”
