McALESTER, Oklahoma –
A Green Country first grader is using her skillful hand to help the homeless. McAlester’sÂ Hope HouseÂ is where homeless women and children go to get back on their feet, and Chloe Wall is putting her heart into her drawings to help to bring those families hope.
“Yes, it just comes to me when I’m doing it,” said the 7-year-old.
With a marker in hand, Chloe is on a mission to make a difference.
“I just think that if I make lots of creations, then, I would probably help,” said Chloe.
An entire wall at the Hope House is covered in the 7-year-old’s artwork.
The Hope House is a faith-based shelter that has helped nearly a thousand homeless women and children since it opened in 2009.
