The Hope Center was founded in 2010 and seeks to offer those in need with food, clothing, skills and guidance, according to their website. The proceeds from the fundraiser will go to refill their pantry during the holiday season and toward general operating costs of the organization.
Their “Attractions 2013″ coupon books for Fredericksburg (including Stafford and Spotsylvania) books are $25 and Loudon and Fairfax or Prince William books are $20.
The coupon books include more than $3,000 in restaurant coupons, $2,000 in store and event coupons, and free online coupons and VIP certificates.
Coupons are good until Dec. 31, 2013.
“[The] Attractions 2013 coupon books make great Christmas gifts, and your purchase helps support programs at Stafford Hope Center.” said Hope Center spokeswoman Vanessa Akin said.
