As the temperature starts to go down to freezing and below, we here at Helping Hands turn our attention to the coming of winter and the need for winter clothing, blankets and coats for men, women and children. Many of our families have little to no heat in the winter so blankets go almost as quickly as they are donated. So what we need are coats and blankets in good condition. These can be either delivered to Helping Hands on Tues. – Fri. from 9:00 to noon or left by the black container outside the church office.
The need for non-perishable food items grows each month as the number of clients and families is growing. We average over 700 families a month and that’s just the average. Some days we help anywhere from 60 to as high as 90 families with food, clothing needs and some personal items if we have them. So on your next trip to the grocery store, please pick up some extra canned items or non-perishable food items to lend us a hand.
Lastly, please keep Helping Hands in your prayers as we continue to meet the needs of the citizens of Raleigh County. We thank you for your continued support and prayers.
