The Helping Hands Mission is known for aiding Wake County’s low income, elderly, homeless, disabled and handicapped communities. Each year the Wake County AOH drops off donations for the Helping Hands Mission’s Thanksgiving “Love” Basket program. Each basket contains a turkey, stuffing, canned goods and more to help provide a Thanksgiving meal for those less fortunate in Wake County. This year the AOH dropped off over 40 turkeys, several hams and numerous boxes of food to the New Bern House.
Many thanks goes to D’s Bottleshop in Wakefield which served as a drop off location for our food drive and hosted a Thanksgiving party with Ewes Tree Band.
As an additional note, because of the success with the Food Drive at D’s we will be setting up a Toy and Coat Drive for Christmas. We will be dropping off donation collection bins to D’s Bottleshop in Wakefield, Patrick Jane’s Bar & Bistro in Cary, Pat Murnane’s Irish Pub in Wake Forest and The Stags Head in Raleigh. The Helping Hands Mission is asking for donations of Educational Toys for ages birth to 5 years old as well as warm gloves, scarves and coats for Operation Warm Clothing. We will drop the donations off to the New Bern House on Dec 23rd.
