Jonesboro, Ark., August 27th, 2019 - NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation celebrates Season of Hope, an entire season of activities and events formerly known as Hope Week. Season of Hope is a community wide effort to highlight the spirit of hope and its importance in the life of Northeast Arkansas.

Individuals, groups and organizations are encouraged to spread Hope to those who need it most with activities, events and projects throughout the community. The initial "Hope Week" has grown, flourished and evolved into a "Season of Hope".
