Thinking of making a Holiday Donation?

As we begin thinking about the upcoming Holiday season often times making donations comes to mind.  I would like to invite you to consider Helping Hands Network as your recipient this year.  For every dollar donated to HHN we can provide approximately 12 meals. Our families receive healthy, nutritious food which includes fresh fruits and vegetables.

Having adequate funding enables us to purchase the lowest cost food when it is available from the food bank.  We have been very successful in dropping our cost per pound of food from 27 cents in 2014 to 6.6 cents currently.  This means that we are able to provide more for our neighbors.  Here is a list of what a family of four would be eligible to choose from our shelves:

  • 24 oz ranch salad dressing
  • 12 oz mustard
  • 6 oz coffee
  • 64 oz grapefruit juice
  • 10 -15 oz can vegetables
  • 3-15 oz can fruits
  • 2-10 oz can soup
  • 1 # box crackers
  • 2- 15 oz spaghetti sauce
  • 2- 15 oz can beans
  • 4 boxes of macaroni and cheese
  • 1# bag egg noodles
  • 1# spaghetti
  • 1# elbow pasta
  • 2# pinto beans
  • 3-1# boxes cereal
  • 24 oz can beef stew

This is approximately 75 pounds of food- which we provide for $4.95.   For comparison…. the retail value would be in the $192.75 range.
