Funds raised support the many missions of Hoover Service Club including need based college scholarships for Hoover and Spain Park high school seniors, food banks and other charitable organizations throughout the local area.
Organized in 1975 by Flora Mae Pike and 10 other women for the sole purpose of "helping others" in the Hoover Community. Today the club is a group of over 160 civic and service-minded women who give their time and talents to help meet the needs in the community. Our annual fundraiser, Hearts in Harmony, provides funds which enable us to continue the legacy of helping others.
