S/R Announcements











~NEW! NEW!  This year, we will be participating in a gift card fundraiser called Scrip.  Scrip is just a way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards.  You purchase gift cards from your organization at face value, and your coordinator orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for Helping Hands, Inc.  It’s really that simple!   Simply return the attached form with your check made out to Helping Hands, Inc.  We will be placing two orders for the season. The first order is due by October 31, 2017 and the second no later than December 5, 2017.  All orders will arrive prior to Christmas.   The order form for this fundraiser is attached.


~The Poinsettia Flower Sale Fundraiser forms are also attached!!   If you would like a form in color, please let us know, or check it out on our website. Orders are due December 4, 2017.Flowers will arrive on Friday, December 15th and will be available for pick up after noon on that day.  If you order more than ten plants, we will deliver to your home or business. 


~Helping Hands will once again be having our Gift Wrap Fundraiser at the Coventry Mall this holiday season.  We are in need of volunteers for many hours for the booth. If you would like to volunteer for a 2-hour shift, please contact Wendy at the office.  Contact the office for further information, or more information will be available soon on our website. Thank you for your continuing support.

  8. Reminder that Helping Hands implemented a procedure for anyone who cancels after being registered for an activity where there is an admission ticket purchased. If HHI is not able to replace that slot with another participant, you will still be billed for that activity.  Please note that staffing, vehicles, and tickets are determined by the registrations received, and up until this point, HHI has lost that money.


We would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe holiday season!
