HOPE Center Receives Annual Donation from Rupp’s Truck in Lamar




The HOPE Center at Lincoln School in Lamar recently received an annual donation from Rupp’s Truck and Trailer Repair on Highway 50 in Lamar. Lori Hammer, Executive Director of the HOPE Coalition said the $2,500 was a welcome gift for right around the holidays and this isn’t the first time that Roman Rupp has made a similar contribution.  “We had a check from him for $2,500 the year before and one for $2,000 in 2016,” she stated.

Roman Rupp explained a while ago that his operation is child-focused and they strive to support the community when it comes to education. Many loyal customers are local, therefore the progress of children is a very large focus of this company.  As a small town, we know it takes a village to raise a child.  The Hope Center Afterschool Program has continuously helped many students academically progress and achieve.
