Help for Homeless Charity Car Show

Local News

Saturday custom cars were out and on display for a good cause.

This was the first "Hope for Homeless Charity Car Show". Hope for Homeless is a program that was  started by the youth at Wildwood Church of Christ. Teri Clapper says the car show was just an extension of their outreach program.

"We started to gather hygiene items, backpacks, toiletries, food, water bottles, blankets that sort of thing the first year and then after that we wanted to continue it, " said Clapper.

The group says that they saw a need in the community and last time they checked there were almost 70 homeless people in Muskingum County. Clapper says she thinks the car show was a great way to connect to the community and get people involved. Car enthusiast, Jason Adams was one of those people.

"Well I’m here to see all of the interesting cars. We’ve been to about every car show around here so it’s just great being out here and being a part of the car show," said Adams.
