Helping Hands is continuing to help those less fortunate with food and clothing. The Lord has blessed us with a monthly truck from the Mountaineer Food Bank that we purchase food at a discounted rate. We had so much food for November we had to get another truck – what a true blessing. Our numbers continue to grow weekly and now that the weather is turning colder the need for coats and blankets is growing as well. WE NEED BLANKETS AND COATS AND LOTS OF THEM. They can either be new or “slightly” used. We also are always in need of soap, toilet paper and non-perishable food.
Helping Hands is continuing to help the people of Beckley and Raleigh County and your support and prayers have gone a long way in helping us do this. As summer draws to a close and the weather starts to turn cooler, we need blankets and lots of them.
In one week in September we served over 200 families with food and clothing and this is where you can help. We need non-perishable food and meat. Our food shelves and freezers are almost bare which means we have to go to the grocery store or the food bank and buy food and with the rising cost of food, as you well know, this uses money that might otherwise be used for other purposes. Your prayers are appreciated as we continue to lend a helping hand to those in need.
Helping Hands has initiated a new project and here’s how you can help. When you go to your favorite hairdresser, barber, bank and any other local business, ask them if you can place a collection box in their business to collect non-perishable canned goods. If they agree, contact Edna Nasby at Helping Hands and she will see that one gets delivered. They are also in need of toilet paper, bar soap, blankets and non-perishable food. With fall coming upon us, that means winter is not too far away so winter clothing and blankets are always needed and greatly appreciate. They continue to serve well over 600 families a month and that need is steadily growing. Please keep this ministry in your prayers as they strive to help those less fortunate in Raleigh County.
As summer rolls along, so does our steady stream of clients seek help with food and clothing. We distribute non-perishable food and clothing to all eligible clients on a monthly basis depending on the size of their family. WE ARE ALSO IN NEED OF BLANKETS!!!
We are currently still looking for volunteers to work on Thursday and Friday mornings. It’s only three hours and you will be blessed. You can also provide financial support for Helping Hands through the Kroger Rewards Program. Just click on Rewards on your Kroger account and click down to Community Rewards and then select Helping Hands Community Resource Center. A portion of your purchase will go directly to us without costing you a dime! What a better way to support them. We are open Tuesday through Friday from 9AM to noon. We take donations during those times or they can be left in the large black container outside the church office.
Thank you for your generous support and please continue to keep us in your prayers as we reach out to help those less fortunate.
Helping Hands continues its mission to help those less fortunate in the Beckley/Raleigh County area and your support has been greatly appreciated.

As the cold weather gives way to spring, so does our clothes closet here at Helping Hands. The winter clothing is packed away and the spring and summer items are brought out. These clothing items, along with non-perishable food, are what our clients receive when they come in once a month. Through your donations, along with donations from local grocery stores, is what enables this ministry to help those in need in the Beckley and Raleigh County area.
The blankets and coats you donated during the winter were much needed and appreciated. Your generosity and those of some community groups helped us keep people warm this winter and for this we give you much thanks.
We are always in need of volunteers to donate their time. We are open Tuesday through Friday from 9AM until noon. It’s only three hours one morning a week and you will be blessed. See Edna Nasby and let her know what day would be best for you.
Now that the cold blustery days of winter are hopefully gone, Helping Hands switches out their winter clothing for spring and summer clothing which is always needed. We continue to help those less fortunate who need assistance with food and clothing. Donations of soap, toilet tissue and non-perishable food can either be dropped off at Helping Hands or leaving it in the black container outside the church office. Our numbers are increasing steadily which means we are reaching out and providing assistance. As always, volunteers are greatly needed. We are open Tuesday through Friday from 9AM until noon. So any time you can volunteer would be appreciated. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we help those in Beckley and Raleigh County.
Helping Hands Community Resource Center has continued to be a great resource for families to receive food and clothing on a monthly basis. The needs of our clients continue to grow as the price of everything from milk to bread to meat continues to rise. Every day we get at least one new family reaching out for our services.
We are open Tuesday through Friday from 9AM until noon. Volunteer help is always welcome. Non-perishable food, clothing, bar soap and toilet paper are always needed and can be left in the large black container outside the church office. Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to provide the help that they need.
As the cold weather continues, our number of clients continues to grow each week. The need for food and clothing has never been more present in our community than now. Helping Hands is continuing to collect non-perishable food, winter clothing including coats and blankets, soap and toilet tissue. We covet your prayers as we serve the people of Beckley and Raleigh County. Your donations can be dropped off at Helping Hands Tuesday through Friday from 9AM to noon or left in the black container outside the church office.
The ministry of Helping Hands has been helping the people of Beckley and Raleigh County for many years and have helped countless families with both food and clothing. In these times of uncertainty, many, many familes are faced with the problem of providing the basic needs of life and that’s where you come in.
We continue to collect non-perishable food, clothing, toilet paper and bar soap but our biggest concern right now is blankets and coats. Many of our families struggle to keep warm in the winter and that’s where your support has been extremely generous so far this winter and for that we thank you. BUT the need still continues. Every family who comes into Helping Hands is given a blanket for every member of their family.
So let’s check the January sales and help keep Beckley and Raleigh County warm this winter. As always, we thank you for your continued support to this ministry.
