Helping Hands produces new video to raise funds for 2012 Annual Campaign
ROCKWALL – Rockwall County Helping Hands has produced this video to help promote the non-profit assistance agency’s 2012 Annual Campaign to raise funds to aid local families and individuals who are struggling financially to make ends meet.
According to Executive Director Margo Nielsen, there are thousands of families and individuals across Rockwall County who currently need and will need assistance this year.
She’s asking County residents to give generously now and all year-long so Helping Hands can provide County residents in need with nutritious meals, school supplies, shelter payments and affordable health care.
In 2011, the Agency’s assistance program provided:
4,205 clients with food, shelter payments, utility bills, household goods and/or clothing
24,000+ bags of food from our Food Pantry
250 families with Thanksgiving turkeys and food baskets
1,229 children (about 495 families) with three new toys each plus stocking-stuffers at Christmas
Helping Hands also served 1,683 new patients and 5,777 returning patients – including 2,348 children – at the Health Center.
