Happy New Year from HHD!

Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful holiday. Helping Hands had a wonderful month in December.

● We helped 6 people get temporary jobs with the Salvation Army, and we have a good prospect for other deaf people to get full time employment soon.

● We helped deaf people get their citizenship.

● We had a successful fundraising event with a bake sale at Five Below.

● We provide transportation to deaf friends who go to see their doctors.

● We are applying for grants to help support us in purchasing a home.

Thanks to everyone for helping us with the bake sale, and to others assisting us to find employment for deaf people.

We have started a great ongoing fundraising program and it is very easy for us to get involved. People who shop at Kroger can sign up with their personal ID number and a certain percentage of your purchase goes to our organization. Just sign up and follow the instruction.

We hope you have a wonderful and rewarding 2016!
