Your Helping Hands are Needed

The weather has warmed up (finally) we look forward, as does everyone, to sunshine and warmer days. We thank you for your generous donations of money food and clothing which helps us a great deal as we serve the people of Beckley and Raleigh County.

But what we need even more is some “helping hands”. We need at least eight people every day to work both the front desk, food rooms and clothing rooms and that’s where you come in. It’s only three hours a day Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 until noon and you will be truly blessed. See Edna Nasby and let her know when you can work.

We are also receiving spring and summer clothing as well as soap, toilet paper and non-perishable food items. These items can either be taken to Helping Hands or left in the black container outside the church office. Once again, thank you for your support and keep us in your prayers.

Your “Helping Hands” are Needed

We here at Helping Hands have made it through another winter and now that spring has “officially” begun, we look forward, as does everyone, to sunshine and warmer days. We thank you for your generous donations of money food and clothing which helps us a great deal as we serve the people of Beckley and Raleigh County.

But what we need even more is some “helping hands”. We need at least eight people every day to work both the front desk, food rooms and clothing rooms and that’s where you come in. It’s only three hours a day Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 until noon and you will be truly blessed. See Edna Nasby and let her know when you can work.

Also, starting in April we will only be receiving spring and summer clothing as well as soap, toilet paper and non-perishable food items. These items can either be taken to Helping Hands or left in the black container outside the church office.

Once again, thank you for your support and keep us in your prayers.

Always Reaching Out to Help

Helping Hands has been a vital mission project of First Baptist Church for many years and is still going strong. We are here to help with food and emergency clothing for those in need of it. We also need volunteers to work in the front office, the food room, the clothing room or to help separate and size clothing. The hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 AM until noon. We have people from all over the Beckley area as well as residents from Raleigh County who depend on agencies such as ours to lend them a “helping hand.”

We are always in need of toilet paper and bar soap which we include in each box we give out. We could also still use gently used sheets, blankets and clothing. These items can be dropped off at Helping Hands during our regular hours of operation or left in the large black container outside the church office.

Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to help the people of Beckley and Raleigh County one at a time.

Helping Through These Cold Winter Days

We here at Helping Hands continue to help those in need through these cold winter months with food and clothing. We thank you for your donations of both money and food and ask that you keep us in your prayers. We are always in need of volunteers to work both the front desk and the clothing room as well as what we call our pick up people that go to the various grocery stores during the week and pick up donations. If you can help in any way, please contact Edna Nasby.

We are also collecting bar soap and toilet tissue that we give out as part of our donation box. These can be left in the large black container outside the church office. We take winter clothing donations at Helping Hands on Tuesday’s only from 9AM until noon. Thanks again for your support.

Keeping Our Community Warm

We had a great Christmas toy giveaway last month and many children received toys from your generous donations. Many of these little ones probably would not have had a Christmas if these toys had not been donated. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity.

Now that it’s officially winter – or at least that’s what the calendar says – we turn our focus to keeping people warm as well as fed. We are always in need of blankets, coats and sleeping bags. These sometimes go out as fast as we receive them.

A Huge Thank You from Helping Hands

Thank you so, so much for the tremendous support you gave to Helping Hands in the donations of winter coats and blankets.  This will truly come in very handy as we serve the people of Beckley and Raleigh County through the winter.    We are always in need of non-perishable food items, toilet paper and bar soap.  Donations can be placed in the large black container outside the church office.  We are also still collecting winter clothing on Tuesday’s from 9:00 AM until noon.  Thank you again for your generous support of this ministry and please keep us in your prayers.

Helping Others Get Ready for Winter

Helping Hands is once again gearing up for another cold winter. We have changed our clothing room over to winter clothing for adults and children. We are in desperate need of winter coats and blankets. This is always a huge need once the weather turns cold. We will be packing the pulpit at the church with new and “gently used” winter coats and blankets during the month of November.

We continue to need soap and toilet tissue which can be left in the black container outside the church office. Volunteers are a necessary part of our mission and your help would be greatly appreciated. It’s just three hours a day and you will be blessed by seeing how we minister to the community.

As always, keep us in your prayers as we continue to reach out to the city of Beckley and the surrounding community.

Reaching Out to the Community

Well now that fall is officially here, the ministry of Helping Hands continues to help those less fortunate in the Beckley and Raleigh County areas. We are taking donations of fall and winter clothing only on Tuesday mornings from 9:00 until noon. As always, we are also taking donations of non-perishable food, bar soap and toilet paper. These donations can either be brought to Helping Hands or placed in the large black container outside the church office.

We are also in desperate need of volunteers to work. Due to age and some medical issues, our crews are down each day which just makes it harder on the ones still there. So please, if you can spare one morning a week, your help will be much, much appreciated.

We will also soon be asking for donations of blankets and winter coats for both adults and children for those who are either homeless or live in an environment where these is no heat. More details will be coming on that.

As always, we thank you for your support of this badly needed mission project and ask that you keep us in your prayers.

Lending a Hand

Let me first thank you for your support of Helping Hands. With your donations of non-perishable food items, toilet paper and soap, we can continue to serve the people of Beckley and Raleigh County. There is a large black container outside the office for your donations. We are taking donations of clothing Tuesday through Friday now.

Our numbers are increasing just a bit and we know as the weather turns to fall that hopefully that will continue to grow. We are in desperate need of volunteers to work. We’ve had several of our regular volunteers undergo surgery or have had to step down for various reasons which leaves us short-handed most days. Please if you have a few hours to spare, we could certainly use you. We are open Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until noon.

Please continue praying for us as we lend a hand to those less fortunate.

Helping Hands Continue to Help

First off, thank you so very, very much for your continued support of this ministry. Its mission of providing food and clothing to the people of Raleigh County is needed more now than ever before. Our number of families and individuals seeking help has been steady for the most part. God is blessing us as we continue to serve his people. Your prayers for this ministry are always appreciated and greatly needed. Also if you have a few hours in the morning one day to spare, we can always use an extra set of hands.

We are asking for you to continue to donate non-perishable items, toilet paper and soap. Items can be either brought over to Helping Hands or left in the black container outside the church office.
