Helping Hands Charities

Helping Hands Charities

is a domestic non profit 501(c)(3 ) organization in the State of Florida and is operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, specifically to share our faith with the love of Jesus by reaching out to the community/humanity. It started with people donating surplus of food from their own pantry. As you may know, we are located near two military bases and as the families permanently change stations, they donated canned goods, household items and other small appliances. With group of volunteers, we had garage sales of these items and money raised was used to purchased more food for the pantry. Later on, people were stopping by to asked for funds to help them with fuel/gas for transporation, a co-pay to pick up prescribed medications, buy a formula or diapers for a baby, needing money for water and electricity and other needs, Helping Hands Charities was organized. Helping Hands is simply here to lend a hand by following the examples of our Lord Jesus.
Matthew 25:35 - "For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in. Assuredly, I say to you, when you did it to one of the least of these, my brethren. You did it to me."
