Hi Everyone, This is Pastor Steve and the President of Hands of Hope Community Services, I just wanted to give a shout-out to all the volunteers that help us week in and week out.
Hands of Hope Community Services is a non-profit organization that relies completely on volunteers and donations. Our organization, in partnership with The King’s Vineyard, serves our community with free clothing and food year-round.
Our volunteers typically feed about one hundred and fifty people a week. We have folks that pick up food donations from local businesses several days a week and Birch ministries in Gresham, OR once a month. Our clothing ministry gives clothing for all seasons to residents in our area; in sizes that range from infant to adult of all sizes.
This takes a lot of time and energy from the small number of people who make this happen. They are constantly arranging, sifting, washing, folding, making boxes of food for families, supplying water to those who have none, delivering food and water, and always with huge smiles and great attitudes. They really live out the scriptures that say “Don’t get tired of doing good.” I am so very proud of all of them and just wanted to let everyone know that there are folks that have continued to serve this community with great attitudes and great hearts. I won’t mention their names as they would just be upset because recognition is not why they do it. It is their love for God and people that motivates them. I am blessed to know them and to call them my friends. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! You are all amazing and I am blessed to know you.
Sincerely, Pastor Steve
President of Hands of Hope Community Services
