Blessed time at Thanksgiving dinner

 Helping Hands for the Deaf and friends had a blessed time at our Thanksgiving dinner! The deaf people were blessed with gifts in shoeboxes given by Naomi. We thank Naomi for cans of food  and shoeboxes with goodies inside. Without Naomi, what will they get? Nothing! I didn't take many pictures of everyone who received gifts from Naomi because we didn't have enough time. We all loved seeing our friends' faces light up smile and bright eyes.

Happy Thanksgiving from HHD

Hello! Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Indeed, we are!

Helping Hands for the Deaf is a not - for - profit organization committed to providing a shelter for those who cannot afford a home to live in, transportation for those who do not have any mean of transportation, and tutoring for independent living.

Do you know a deaf person who is single, doesn't have a family, and cannot afford food to cook for Thanksgiving? If so, please let us know. We will give this person further information on the location where we get together to eat Thanksgiving dinner as a family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

HHD helps deaf get Salvation Army jobs

 Meskel Crowe, the founder and director of Helping Hands for the Deaf, went to the local Salvation Army to help them give the bell ringer orientation again this year.  She helped some deaf people fill out the job applications on Friday and they were put to work quickly on Monday, November 14. They have been ringing bells since then. It is very nice of the Salvation Army to give them jobs!
