Helping Hands Moves to the Andrews Church of God
We are proud to announce that Helping Hands in Andrews will open its doors at a new location on December 7 at the Andrews Church of God. Joe Lambert, Pastor of the Andrews Church of God, states, “Helping Hands has provided care for our community for years. Their vision and purpose for existence lines up with our purpose and vision. We welcome Helping Hands with open arms.”
“It’s like we are going back home to our roots in the Andrews community,” states Deana Cooper, Andrews Helping Hands Site Manager. “We are so excited to be back in a church. Helping Hands was founded by people of faith to help those in need.”
The new Andrews site will focus on helping our seniors and disabled, the unemployed, those who are struggling while working to keep food on their table, and continue to provide utility assistance. “This will be a much smaller site which will provide us just enough room to serve the community,” said Deanna Cooper.
“We are so blessed by this wonderful church inviting us to share this ministry together with them and the other 18 covenant churches in Andrews. We will be able to take the money we were spending on rent, utilities, insurance, Internet, and invest that money in helping people in need in Andrews,” said Brendon Barber, Executive Director for Helping Hands. “We are very grateful for Pastor Joe Lambert and the Andrews Church of God for their support.”
Our present site on Main Street will close November 25 as we move to our new site.
Helping Hands offers HOPE, HELP, and CHANGE in Georgetown County. On faith-based principles, we seek to create sustainable futures through job training and youth empowerment to relieve generational and situational poverty, while meeting immediate needs of food insecurity, utility support, and dental care.
