Helping Hands

It may seem like something very trivial to you but it’s something we all use.  Helping Hands has been giving out toilet tissue and bar soap along with food items and your help in this project is needed.  What they need is for people to pledge a monthly gift of toilet tissue and/or bar soap.  Your donations will not only help those less fortunate but it will also help the dollars at Helping Hands to go further if they don’t have to purchase these items.  See Edna Nasby and let her know she can count on your support.   Donations can be left outside the church office.

One other way you can help.  If you shop at Krogers and have access to a computer, you can register your Kroger card at  Once you have your card registered, go to the Community tab and click on Kroger Community Rewards and follow the instructions from there.  Helping Hands gets a percentage of your shopping total each time you shop.   If you have any questions about this, contact the church office.

From the Hands that Help Others

We were overwhelmed with the support that we have received from our church family and the Beckley and Raleigh County community during 2016.  The Thanksgiving food, coat and blanket drive will help us immensely throughout the winter.  We also thank our volunteers who come week after week to give their time to help in this vital ministry as well as those of you who support us financially month after month.

While the final numbers were not available at the time of this article, our numbers were up consistently each and every month and we anticipate that trend will continue in the new year so we will need your continued support.  We are always in need of bath soap and toilet tissue.  Non-perishable food items are also needed because the more that is donated, the less we have to purchase and this helps our budget and finances.   Donations can be left in the large box outside the church office.

Helping Hands: Thank You!

A huge, huge thank you for the pounds and pounds of canned goods and non-perishable food, over 100 blankets and countless coats that were donated to Helping Hands in November.   This will help them greatly through the winter months.  There is a great need right now for boxes of saltine crackers, toilet tissue and soap.  Your continued support with non-perishable food items is always needed and can be left in the box outside the church office.

Your Help is Needed

Helping Hands is in need of some volunteers to work in the mornings.

They are open from 9:00 until noon Tuesday through Friday and you can volunteer to work any of those days.

The need is growing monthly and your help would be greatly appreciated.

See Edna Nasby to sign up or call them at 304-253-3467.

Non-perishable food items, toilet paper & soap are also needed.  Donations can be left in the box outside the church office.  

Helping Hands Update

Thank you so much for your donations of winter coats, hats and gloves.   With winter getting such a late start, our demand was extremely high and your help is still needed.  So keep digging through those closets and see if you have any winter coats that have shrunk sitting in the closet.   They can be left outside the church office or you can take them directly to Helping Hands.  Their hours are 9:00 to noon Tuesday through Friday.
