As the calendar turns to the last month of 2020, Helping Hands continues to reach out to the less fortunate here in Beckley and Raleigh County with food and clothing.
Our clothing room is now open Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 until noon to serve our clients. We are taking clothing donations on Tuesday’s only until further notice.
Non-perishable food items are a constant need. Your donations can be brought to Helping Hands Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 until noon or left in the black container outside the church office.
We have several projects ongoing at the moment. The first is our coat and blanket drive. With the weather turning colder, our clients are in need of new or gently used blankets and coats for men, women and children. Blankets seem to go out as quickly as they come in and coats are also in demand. These donations can be left in the black container outside the church office or brought to Helping Hands.
Our second project involves creating treat bags for our kids for Christmas. Right now we are in need of apples, M&M’s, toothbrushes & toothpaste. The non-perishable items can be brought to the church between Dec. 13th & 17th. The fruit can be brought between Dec. 15th & 17th.
Finally, we would like to thank all of you for your donations throughout the year. With God’s help, you have made it possible for us to continue to serve our clients and we look forward to continuing this in the coming year. God bless you all and have a Merry, Merry Christmas.
