Homes of Hope gets new $250K Pepsi grant

PURVIS, MS (WDAM) - A Purvis Christian ministry that provides a home for children in crisis has gotten a second large grant from a major corporation. The Homes of Hope for Children has won another $250,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project.

The money will build a second youth cottage at the facility, which helps foster children. A few months ago, the ministry received its first $250,000 Pepsi grant.

That money was used to construct the first youth cottage.
