Essential Items raised for the homeless


At Helping Hands - Driven By Youth, aside from the chapter fundraising events that run constantly, we run 2 large nationwide projects. The first is the gift basket program where we collected desperately needed items for local homeless shelters in need. The second project is our Food Service missions where we take groups of youth to homeless shelters and cook food from scratch and serve it to hundreds of hungry and homeless people. The national team is also planning our annual large scale Run For Hope to raise items and money to buy desperately needed items for those in need. We hope you can join us at our events so sign up to be part of our volunteer database to receive updates about future events and projects!
