Helping Hands Fun Facts:
In 2015, more than 23,000 bags of food were provided to clients from our food pantry, and provided emergency assistance to more than 3,400 unduplicated clients.
Helping Hands provides new toys for needy children at Christmas, food baskets at Thanksgiving and school supplies at the beginning of each school year.
In 2015, over 10,000 patients were served at the Health Center of Helping Hands. Our low cost clinic is available to everyone and patients are treated with respect by qualified nurse practitioners and volunteer doctors.
The reach of Helping Hands extends further with the Helping Hands Thrift Store and Boutique, upscale resale shop selling quality merchandise at bargain prices. It is not unusual for shoppers to find designer-brand goods, some with the original price tag. Your donations of clothing, furniture and household items are also provided by the stores to clients as needed.
While the Thrift Store and Boutique sales account for more than 40% of the agency’s annual income, this doesn’t cover all that’s needed to assist clients. Helping Hands depends on the extra funding from our natural base of support – local residents and businesses.
Please help us continue to be the community’s safety net and lend a hand up for our neighbors.
