We are open for donations Wednesday 10 AM - 12 PM and for shopping Thursday 10 AM - 1 PM. We rely on donations of clothing, outer wear and household goods from individuals, hotels and businesses. Helping Hands does open for people on an emergency basis when needed.

Little Dresses for Africa
Several members gathered sewing machines and scissors to sew dresses for the little girls and young women of Africa, without which their safety is jeopardized, and their access to education is limited. This was done as part of our work towards the Episcopal Church’s Millennium Development Goal of improved access to education for girls and women.
