Help The Helping Hand Mission pack 'LOVE BASKETS' and toys for the needy...
Make your Christmas extra special this year by helping those in our community who are less fortunate. Join me and my family at The Helping Hand Mission on December 24th...between 2 - 6 pm...to help pack 'love baskets' and toys for needy families and children. Children are welcome. Dress appropriately for outdoor conditions.
All of the photographs in this post were taken at the 2008 Thanksgiving Dinner at The Helping Hand Mission in Raleigh, NC. It was an amazing day that I will NEVER forget.
The little guy pictured at the right was a so sweet. He was shy, but he agreed to pose for a picture for me.
The photograph below was taken across the street from The Helping Hand Mission. There was already a large crowd of volunteers and homeless people assembled for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal and clothing giveaway.
The following photo is part of the Thanksgiving Day volunteer staff with Ms. Sylvia Wiggens...the founder of The Helping Hand Mission. As you can see from all of our smiles...it is a lot of fun to serve others! Not pictured is my dear friend, Carol Smith, who also participated.
The smiling gentleman pictured below served hundreds of plates of home-cooked food...each one with a smile.
There was a line of people waiting for their turn to sit and enjoy a hot Thanksgiving feast. This little guy smiled REALLY big when I gave him the bag of m&m's...but I did not get my camera in time. Isn't he adorable?
This is one of my favorite photos of the day...my youngest daughter, Deren, with a new, little friend.
This last photo shows my girls with Ms. Sylvia Wiggens and some of the children who attended the Thanksgiving dinner at The Helping Hand Mission.
If you do not live in the Raleigh, NC area...look for volunteer opportunities in your area. There is no better way to experience the true joy of Christmas than by sharing your blessings with others.
May your Christmas be filled with so much peace and love...that you cannot help but give it away!
