    Helping Hand’s Mission Statement

     

    Helping Hand is a program supported by the congregation of this church.  We supply food to people of our community on an emergency basis.  Other area churches and local organizations participate in this program by providing additional food and monetary donations that assist us in keeping the church pantry supplied.  These are our sole sources of assistance to aid those who come to us in need.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    The Helping Hand Food Pantry is open on the first and third Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.* If it is your first time, please come before 12:00 noon. To qualify to receive food from the pantry, a picture I.D. is required.  Only one person per household (per address) is eligible to apply for assistance for the family.  Eligible participants can receive food from the pantry once every other month**.

     

    *may be closed due to bad weather, or a church event; it’s best to call ahead

    **subject to change depending on food supply

    Since 1989, the food pantry has served an increasing number of families every year and remains committed to addressing food insecurity in southeast Michigan where, as many as 1 in 7, households struggle to put food on the table.


    During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have maintained our food distribution.

    We developed a contact-less delivery system for the protection of our clients and our workers.
