In August, Helping Hands made baby and swaddling blankets for St. Gerard House and Divine Mercy homes for unwed mothers.

Our October meeting will be our special yearly Christmas tree decoration day for Community Peds Hospice. All trees have been donated, we just need decorations for them. We have been donating 2-3ft trees for the annual party for families for 8 years. The families then get to take their special tree home. If you wish to make one home and bring it, that would be fine. We meet the last Friday of the month, which would be October 26th at 10AM at Faith Community. Our trees have been decorated in Barbies, balls, garland, shells, golf stuff, nuts and bolts and yu name it and the creativity is amazing. Come join us, we will have a contest for most creative, prettiest, all over beauty.

We will also have Stockings for a Soldiers available at both meetings for filling. These will go to our brave soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are on a short time frame as they have to be mailed by Novemebr 20. Helping Hands is partnering with Our Lady of Good Counsel Church , who will be paying for the postage to mail them. Snack or health and beauty aids are needed to fill them, but cannot be mixed. Contact jacqphil@aol.com, if your neighborhood or girl scout troops would like to help fill them. We plan on sending 300.
