MEDFORD, Ore.- Hope Village is working with local artists to help create Peace Poles that will raise money for the expansion of the Kelly Shelter. The local artist were able to paint and add a custom cap for the top.
Peace Poles are around four feet tall and go in your garden. The poles will start off at 50 dollars and will go up in increments of 10. The auction will be going on until November 5th.
All materials were donated by local companies. Wood was donated by Parr Lumber and the paint and stencils were donated by Craft Warehouse.
Local artists said that the Peace Poles are for a good cause but being able to create them was a mental and emotional stress relief. They will also be receiving 25 percent of the profits.
