Why We Help:
Helping Hands began as a small project, aiming to pay forward the generosity shown to our founder. Jennifer wanted to help others in the community who were also struggling. Since 2013, it has taken on a life of its own, involving countless amazing donors, businesses, volunteers, and hearts in our community. We are so thankful!
Help Keep Our Pantry Full
Did you know we provide healthy nutrition with dignity to between 5-10 families in our community each week? It is through your generous donations that we are able to make this happen. Unsure of what to give? These are items we use every week, rain or shine, and need to help keep our pantry fully functioning.
