Thrill of Hope Editor's Note

December 2020 | January 2021

The holiday season is upon us, and our weary world is indeed rejoicing in the thrill of hope. While our traditions look different this year, we embrace this season of love with open arms.

Warm yourself up from the inside out with a stop at One Eleven Coffee, a space where people feel included while they create a stronger community in revitalized downtown Hanford. The coffeehouse’s tasty treats are sourced from local shops and neighborhood bakers, and they’re happy to accommodate diverse dietary needs.

Shorter days and colder weather can weigh heavily on one’s mood, even around the holidays. A local entrepreneur found a remedy through her Scent & Fire Candle Company. The scent of her candles, coupled with the warm glow of a candle flame, brightens people’s spirits – and they’re eco-friendly at the same time. For those who might need a deeper look into their struggles with anxiety or depression, the Balance Treatment Center has opened a Visalia location to help people cope when life’s stressors become too heavy to handle alone. 

Then, meet the Visalia Gleaning Seniors, who collect donated fruits, vegetables, baked goods, breads and more to provide nourishment to struggling older adults.

Please take some time to patronize our local businesses this season, either in person or online. It’s an easy way to show our appreciation for those who have weathered an exceptionally difficult storm this year. We wish you a bright and beautiful holiday season. Enjoy!
