Helping Hands, Waynesburg, OH
2021 Canton "A Taste of Oakwood Square" recipient
The primary objective of the Helping Hands Network is to provide a helping hand to those in need throughout the Sandy Valley Local School District community. The main area of service is providing food through a Choice Food Pantry to those who meet the USDA income guidelines for food assistance. The pantry area is located in the lower level of a former church building. The restrooms are old, damp and moldy. The remodeling of the bathrooms would allow them to convert the men's and women's restroom into one clean family restroom and also gain some extra space for the pantry. Funds from Canton’s “A Taste of Oakwood Square” helped Helping Hands with hardware/fixtures for the new bathroom space.
