Meet our Employees

Donna and her niece Dana run and manage The Hope Chest with God as their Leader!

Donna Walpole


Donna opened The Hope Chest together with her Dear Friend and Love, Thomas Barber, July 1st, 2015.  Together they created and unique, one of a kind store. A place where people can not only find that special Bible, Book or gift, but a place where they can sit and talk or just relax. Thomas went home to be with Our Lord Easter Sunday 2017. He is very much missed, but His is presence will always be with us!
