Wabash alumnus Charlie Lopez was kicking off another inaugural Wabash Day event:
a partnership between Wabash alumni and Hancock Hope House Homeless Shelter. Radio Station WFMS, the Indiana Blood Center, and Wabash and other volunteers were on hand to raise awareness of Hope House and its clothing and thrift store. Hope House "Wearhouse" manager Linda Baker was encouraged by the turnout.
"We hoping that Wabash will make this an annual event," Baker said. "Everything we sell here raises fund to support the shelter."
