Helping Hands is a program that shows respect and love for homeless and others in need every month by distributing donated and purchased personal items (e.g. hotel size toiletries, socks, chap stick, dental items, deodorant, bus tickets and much more). These items are donated by members of our church and/or purchased by donations and funding from the church.
The numbers of those we serve grow monthly but currently range from 120 -140 per month. Items are distributed from 1-3 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday of the first full week of every month in the McCullough Room of the Watkins Building. Volunteer opportunities include preparing materials for distribution and participating in the actual distribution.
Donations are greatly appreciated and can be left in the labeled basket at the welcome desk at Central Christian Church. Keep scrolling for a list of helpful donations.
Persons wanting to help or with questions can contact Kathryn Zink at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (859) 263-8013.
