Helping Hands is SO PROUD to announce we have been honored as the Stark County Hunger Task Force PANTRY OF THE YEAR! This award recognizes the commitment of our volunteers to provide a welcoming experience to all who enter our doors. That experience includes volunteers who work at the pantry, drive our truck, unload our food, stock our shelves, pack groceries as well as our clothing volunteers, those that mow our yard, weed our flowerbeds and those who help us out on special occasions. We appreciate all who donate their time and talents to care for others in our community! This award recognizes that dedication and we proudly share it with all! We couldn’t do it without YOU!
THANK YOU SHEPHERD OF THE VALLEY LUTHERAN CHURCH!
Helping Hands has received 3 quilts made by the lovely folks at Shepherd of the Valley! We have set up a raffle for our families to enter for the quilt they would like to receive. We appreciate them sharing their handiwork with our families. Our families are eagerly waiting to hear if they won one of the quilts! Blessing to you Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church!

THANK YOU SOUTHERN 4-H CLUB AND CUSTOM LANDSCAPING!
Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Southern 4-H Club cleaned and mulched the flower beds in front of Helping Hands. This project was completed by these energetic young people and their advisors, who took their time to give back to their community. Thank you for your time and energy in preparing us for summer! Thank you Custom Landscaping for donating the mulch! Our landscaping looks GREAT!!!
03-07-23 THANK YOU FROM HELPING HANDS
As you may know, HHN operates solely on community support, both financially and in time from volunteers. On many occasions we receive verbal appreciation for what we provide. We recently received a lovely note from a young member of one of our families. We pass this on to YOU, our supporters. It is YOU who make happen the work we do, so even though we received the note, it really is a thank you to YOU. Thank you from all of us at HHN also :-)
