     While many of our "normal" activities have been shut down during the Covid-19 pandemic, Helping Hands hasn't skipped a beat. We owe a huge THANK YOU to the many, many residents who have really stepped up and have been dropping off non-perishable food donations in the Arts & Crafts room.

     There are so many people in our local area who are in crisis when it comes to having a simple meal. There are many children in our school system who rely solely on the breakfasts, lunches, and pack-a-sack food distributed through the school system. And is out and the children are still hungry.
     We have quite a number of residents who are out working at local food pantries and delivering food to those in need. To each of you - thank you!

     One Community Now is focused on feeding the school children and initially this was Helping Hands main focus.

     Now we are also delivering food donations to local pantries. Shown in this photo is St. Vincent de Paul's Drive-Up Pantry located at Shaw St. in New Port Richey. If you know of a family in need, their hours are Thurs. from Noon-2:00 pm and Friday 10 am-Noon.

We continue to collect non-perishable food items for local pantries, toiletries for the R.A.P. House, and Box Tops for Education. Donations may be placed in the bin located in the Arts & Crafts Room.

Please know, anything you can contribute is needed and will be used.
Thank you Timber Greens!!!
