Hands-On Outreach

HandsOn.jpgHands-On Outreach began with a food pantry to help those in need. 

 

In 1996, this program expanded to help those in emergency situations by helping with utility bills, bus passes, prescriptions and medical needs. Margaret Hollowell became chair in 2000 and served until 2008 and, under her leadership, the program steadily grew.  Heavenly Rest deacon, Amanda Watson, is greatly involved in the efforts to continue this growth. Donations and services are tracked through a partnership with 2-1-1 Texas: A Call For Help.

 

Volunteers donate food items, which are sorted and stacked for community members. The church provides assistance for rent, transportation and other needs on a case-by-case basis.

 

Ministry Location: 602 Meander – Church of the Heavenly Rest

Ministry Hours: 9:30-11:30 am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. 

Volunteer Opportunities: Buy, stock, or sack items in Food Pantry, write articles for newsletter to increase interest and contributions, input distribution information to computer network, filing, and serving as greeter to those waiting for help.
