KREM 2 News recognizes young people for their acts of kindness with the "Sterling Bank Hero of the Month."
Our August hero worked to bring comfort to people she's never met.
When a man shot and injured two Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies, Hope Newman delivered two blankets to Sherriff Ozzie Knezovich. One each for injured deputies Matt Spink and Michael Northway.
Hope knows there are a lot of people who could use a little love, so she started what she calls "Blankets of Hope".
Hope makes dozens of blankets made of fleece and other key ingredients. She makes blankets for children at Sacred Heart's Pediatric Oncology Unit.
It's that love and kindness that earned Hope the title of KREM 2's Hero of the Month.
