SHEPHERDSVILLE - Sometimes you just need a ray of hope.
On Christmas Day, the St. Aloysius Bounty of Hope looks to bring a bit of cheer to over 500 people with a special holiday meal.
Tom Chamberlain, organizer of the Bounty of Hope program, said the first year had 300 people participate. This year, that number could double.
Thanks to donations from entities such JOM Pharmaceutical, Apex Wireless and a lot of individual helpers, Chamberlain said a Christmas meal will be prepared and presents will be given to over 250 children.
