Helping Hands is an outreach ministry in the city of Harrisburg for the homeless, the downtrodden, and other needy people. Through hot meals, they reach out to the poor with a love and care that is so often missing, yet desperately wanting in their lives. No one is turned away. Anyone in need of a hot meal or encouragement is welcomed. They’ve been “Feeding the Hungry of Harrisburg” for more than 23 years. Helping Hands started serving one day a week and grew to serving five days a week—a schedule they continued for over 15 years. Currently, they are only able to serve three nights a week. Although the economy has hurt them, they continue to do the Lord’s work with His guidance. Serving at St. Michael Lutheran Church, 118 State St., Harrisburg, Helping Hands provides meals on Sundays, Thursdays, and Fridays, from 4:30-5:30 PM. Helping Hands is “totally relying on God” as they are a 100 percent volunteer-driven organization. They depend entirely on donations and volunteers from the community to keep moving ahead and reaching as many of those in need as they can. Your giving will help support the basic needs of those less fortunate right here in the Harrisburg area. Be sure to attend worship on Sunday, June 11, when we will hear more about this ministry and how Helping Hands uses your contributions to serve the needy.
