Hope Epidemic event is scheduled for May 19


SIKESTON -- Chris Sullivan volunteered during last year's Hope Epidemic to make a difference in others lives. In the process, the Sikeston man said his life changed, too.

"Last year really opened my eyes on how people should be and made me see things in a different light," Sullivan said. "I see people for who they are and not how they're dressed, what they look like, where they come from or the color of their skin."

Set for May 19, the 2012 Hope Epidemic begins at 7:30 a.m. at First United Methodist Church in Sikeston.

"This is one of the best things to be involved with," Sullivan said of the event.
