Martha’s House of Hope receives grant funds from Ames Home Builders Association In January 2020, Martha’s House of Hope was the recipient of a $650 grant from the Ames Home Builders Association to purchase CPR training manikins.

lows Martha’s House of Hope (MHOH) to do all volunteer training

in-house so that volunteers can begin serving the needs of our

residents, as MHOH’s executive director is certified by the American Red Cross to facilitate First Aid, CPR, and AED training. It also allows MHOH to train its residents on CPR so they have this skill as new parents. Martha’s House of Hope is a maternity home in Ames.

Superintendent Steve Gray suggested a “Grab & Goâ€? curbside plant activity. Instead of sales, community members could make a donation on-line utilizing RevTrak, or mail in a donation.

By end of day Monday, April 27th over $1,245 had been donated through RevTrak and mailed in checks. “It is great that we have been able to get these plants out to the community, but I look forward to when students can be back at school greeting customers, pricing plant products, and managing retail business!â€? mentioned Kevin Cooper, Nevada High School agriculture education instructor and FFA advisor.
