The 5th Annual Good Hope Awards

Bread for the City was founded in 1974 by a group of volunteers who saw a need and shared a vision for addressing that need. 35 years later, many of our programs still would not exist without the faithful support and service of our dedicated volunteers. Over 1,500 volunteers serve at Bread for the City each year. The Good Hope Awards is our time to recognize their outstanding gift of self and service.

This morning we gathered at The National Press Club to pay tribute to all of our volunteers as well as recognize a select few went above and beyond over the past year (or longer!). The 2010 Good Hope Award recipients are:
