McAllen Chamber of Commerce and the Latina Hope Program's Partners--United Way, Wells Fargo and Calvary Baptist Church--hosted a Press Conference on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 to announce the official store launch!
Many of this semester's Grant Winners--which are also some of the store's handmade merchandise suppliers--were present as well. After many months of hard teamwork, we're all very excited to officially open the online store to assist these hardworking ladies in making their idea a reality, and most importantly, helping to support their families.
