Throughout the year, Helping Hands for the Homeless & Hungry volunteers perform miracles. They serve up Dinners at Noon, organize Mission Backpack (this year they filled 2,500 for the neediest students), and assemble and deliver packages of toiletries (Project Refresh) and undergarments (Undie Fundie). They’ve been doing good things with ease and a smile for nearly 30 years.

On December 10, dozens of supportive guests brought boxes of diapers, as requested, to the organization’s warm and wonderful holiday party at Wainwright, and everyone went home with the glow of giving.
