Powerful words that can make an impact on lives – especially when they are offered to the most vulnerable residents of our community.
Rockwall County Helping Hands 2012 Annual Campaign started April 1. Your financial donation is needed so our non-profit assistance agency can continue providing help, hope and affordable quality health care to our clients in crisis – many that have crossed that fine line separating self-sufficiency and dependency due to business closings and lay-offs.
Money is the fuel that drives our mission to keep families together and in their homes with the lights on and nutritious food on the table in difficult times. So please keep Helping Hands in your annual giving plan – and give as generously as you can.
Together we change lives for the better and make a positive difference by providing nutritious meals, school supplies, shelter payments and affordable health care. We add joy to the lives of those in crisis with Christmas gifts for children and Thanksgiving food baskets for families. We all benefit when that happens.
But it’s not a job we can do alone.
In 2011, the agency’s assistance program with your help provided:
- 4,205 clients help with food, shelter payments, utility bills, household goods and/or clothing;
- 24,000+ bags of food from our Food Pantry;
- 250 families with Thanksgiving turkeys and food baskets;
- 1,229 children (about 495 families) three new toys each plus stocking stuffers at Christmas.
Our Health Center served 1,683 new patients and 5,777 returning patients including 2,348 children. With this service, Helping Hands is doing its part to deal with the health care crisis in America today. We serve people with no insurance coverage, those with high deductibles – and with a sliding scale fee available to those that qualify.
Please give generously and help us extend the hand of hope to others.
