Helping Hands

Helping Hands Pantry is a part of the Evergreen Project system of care for families.

It is our mission to CONNECT with the most needy in our community, help them GROW in self-sufficiency as we SERVE them with the love of Christ Jesus.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me. I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Matthew 25:35-36
