Helping Hands of St. Johns County

The Twiddle Muffs we decorated on May 26 were donated to HOPE Adult Day Care for their clients. The Twiddle Muffs help people with dementia. Besides keeping hands warm they provide stimulation and comfort for the restless hands of these people, help minimize agitation and promote brain stimulation. Enjoy the muffs.

The Father’s Day party at Buckingham Smith Assisted Living Facility on June 15th was a barbeque. The residents loved it. Chandra and her crew cooked hot dogs, provided beans and salad and dessert. All had a good time just visiting with the residents and playing beach ball trivia. There was also popcorn donated by the First Florida Credit Union on CR 210. Ava gave her usual beauty treatment haircuts to 20 residents at BSAL and Japke and Helen entertained with a sing along and accordion. Each resident’s door was given an American Flag decoration that was made from wine corks for Flag Day and the upcoming 4th of July. What a fun time! Our thanks to everyone at First Florida and to all our members who donated food and their time for this event.

On June 30, 2017 at our monthly meeting we called ‘Nighty Nites’ we collected pajamas and story books to be given to the homeless children at Sulzbacher Center in Jacksonville. We hope that having personnel items will bring joy into these young lives.

At our July meeting on the 28th we will be collecting the clothes and shoes along with school supplies for a list of needy children in Saint Johns County. These children will be dressed in new clothes for their first day of school. Thanks to everyone who signed up to donate the clothes. All school supplies will be accepted.

Also at our July meeting we will be learning a darling paper craft taught by Vicki. We have all the paper supplies. You may need to bring scissors, ribbon and glue. This meeting will be a First Florida Credit Union at 1950 CR 210 W.

In August we will back at Faith Community Church at 3450 CR 210 W. This meeting will be a food, underwear and sock drive for the St. Francis House.

Please visit our Facebook page Helping Hands of St. Johns County. Additional pictures and notices will be included on the site. Thanks.

Helping Hands of Saint Johns County is a volunteer organization started in 2006 that meets from 10 AM to noon the last Friday of the month. (March meeting will be March 24th.) There are no dues, officers or stress. Members come when they can and do what they can with what is donated. Helping Hands is fortunate to have many community partners and could not exist without their help through donations of goods and services. The group meets a Faith Community Church, 3450 CR 210 W, Saint Johns FL 32259. For more information contact via email: jacqphil@aol.com
