Helping Hands of St. Johns County

Helping Hands held their Springtime Easter Egg Hunt and Party on March 2 at Faith Community Church. This yearly event was open to special needs children and families and has been a tradition for the group for several years. Many of these children participate at Field of Dreams ball field and we have several members who volunteer there. We had over 40 children and parents attend and the day was a huge success. Event was complete with an Easter Egg Hunt, games,prizes, refreshments and a visit from the Easter Bunny. Thank you to all who heled with this event and young people from Creekside High School. Our gratitude to Papa Johns and Macs Tenders and First Florida for the refreshments.

Our resale clothing drive for the benefit of Olivia Love has been a success and we were able to give her family $388. We had lovely clothes and ran the sale in January and February at meeting. Thanks to all who tried to help this gravely injured 17yr old Nease student, who fell off a golf cart on January 2nd. She is in Atlanta at Shepherds rehabilitation center and making progress. The clothes that were not sold were donated to Alpha Omega House, St Francis House, Spectrum thrift store, Aylas Acres, and Webster School. Get wellcards were made and sent to Atlanta to cheer up Olivia.

Our April meeting will be on April 26th at Faith Community Church at 10 AM and we will be putting together Mothers Day purses for Betty Griffin Shelter for abused women. We typically do this once a year for them, and fill a purse with new, unused cosmetics, jewelry, wallets, scarfs and toiletries. If you have any of donated items please contact jacqphil@aol.com for drop off information.
