On March 17, 2019, Hope Central planted seedling #705 from the Survivor Tree. US Congressman Garret Graves attended the ceremony and helped plant the seedling. The Survivor Tree is the only living thing to survive the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers in New York City in 2001. Today, the tree is a living memorial at the 9/11 memorial site. It represents “Hope, Renewal & Restoration.”
These traits - hope, renewal, and restoration - are rooted deeply in the character and mission of Hope Central. The seedling speaks to us of survival. If it could somehow survive the destruction and chaos of that day, so can you. We all need hope.
Hope begins here . . .
