And September was volunteer month for the students at Helping Hands.We invite you to check out our album “Voluntary Work!” You will be surprised to see the many ways our students helped others including haircuts, donations of blood, visiting the elderly and the sick, collecting bottle caps for the children’s cancer campaign and much more. Don’t miss this album. We are proud of our students!!
HOW YOU CAN HELP THIS MONTH
Thanks to our donors and to GlobalGiving, 31 of our girls have now been supported for 2018. However, 24 of these girls will be continuing with Helping Hands for 2019 and new girls will begin. Many of our sponsors and contributors have asked how they could donate monthly. With GlobalGiving it’s easy! From Nov. 27 to Dec. 31 2018 recurring monthly donations will be matched by GlobalGiving on the first donation. If you would like to contribute monthly to Helping Hands, please click here. Or check out our Dental Health micro project for our younger students.
