PICS: Pizza Party Thrown for Bullied Girl
MASSILLON — A 10-year-old girl with cerebral palsy who’s been in the news after being bullied was given a pizza party Saturday.
The owner of Bella Sera Pizzeria in Massillon threw the party for Hope Holcomb, of East Sparta, after hearing her story.
Hope and her family said a neighbor and his son mocked the way she walked, and video of the behavior was captured last week at the bus stop.
Since, several local businesses and organizations have offered support and gifts for the young girl, although her family said it just wants the bullying to stop.
Hope and her friends and family gathered for the party Saturday wearing “Justice 4 Hope” T-shirts.
