Because we feel it is important that you know how and where your donations to Helping Hands are spent, here is what was done in the past week:
Electric 1 family $ 171.98
Water 1 family $ 60.04
Rent 33 families $ 46,154.91
Total $ 46,386.93
This past Sunday, Dec. 13 the St. Stephen’s Women’s Organization, the St. Ann’s Youth and counselors from Project Head Start all came together to provide Christmas clothes, toys and food to 100 Midland families and their 264 children. Each family received a $50 gift card to HEB for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, and each of the children received a complete set of new clothing plus at least 2 toys each. We would also like to thank MISD’s ROTC for their help in organizing the event and the staff of Midland Memorial Hospital and the parishioners from St. Stephen’s for sponsoring clothing for the children and to the parishioners from St. Ann’s for providing the toys for the kids. We also thank all of you who dropped new clothing and toys by our store to help out.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
From all of us at Helping Hands!
