Helping Hands is a non-profit, non-denominational group that relies on donations of yarn or cash to buy yarn.   Their motto is “comforting our neighbor one stitch at a time.” In 2013, 38 afghans, 7 lap blankets, 48 hats and scarves, and 10 shawls were donated, as well as 3 chemo hats and 4 chemo blankets (chemo items are made with softer or cotton yarn). Helping Hands meets every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon at 2285 Opal Drive – all are welcome.  There are members that can teach anyone who wants to learn to crochet, also anyone who can sew squares together are welcome as well.  Those who cannot join them, but would like to make squares or afghans at home are also welcome.  Call 293-2113 or 293-3770 for more information or directions to the meeting place.
