Helping Hands-Harboring Hope
HH-HH is a simple organization with a simple purpose.
We unite funds and willing volunteers with a select number of needy individuals and groups, in a manner that provides a helping hand rather than a hand-out.
Here's What is Happening Now
We dropped in on the Behm family's annual Operation Christmas Child Packing Party on November 16th. Each year the Behm's, along with their family and friends have sponsored shoe boxes that are delivered to children who otherwise would not receive a Christmas gift. Last year they exceeded their goal of 300 boxes, and from the looks of things, this year they'll top last year's record.
What a production. Bags being filled with candy in one room; shoe boxes being wrapped in another. Letters being written to each child who would receive a shoe box; boxes being filled to overflowing, and prayers being lifted. Must be what Santa's workshop is like on Christmas Eve!
HH-HH needs to schedule our Salvation Army Bell Ringers for the 2013 holiday season. Our location is Macy's south entrance at Town Center in Leawood, Kansas.

HH-HH and Kennedy's Cause were represented at CenturyLink's Holiday Extravaganza. Kennedy is a 15 year old girl who was born with lymphatic malformation. With the help of her family and friends she is trying to raise funds for research that will hopefully lead to better treatment options for herself and for others that have this disease. Volunteers sold crafts, jewelry, and chili and all proceeds raised will be used by HH-HH and Kennedy's Cause to help others.
HH-HH partnered with Trinity Baptist Church in Yukon, Oklahoma as a team of eight travelled to India together. We visited three orphanages, ministered to lepers, sponsored a medical clinic for indigent members of the community, and shared a meal with families of New Life Colony, a thriving community whose members were homeless nomads and beggars just a few short years ago. Our HH-HH team then travelled up to northern India to visit our Sewing Center students and graduates and the children in our tutoring centers. WOW! read more about their travels

The Johnson County Christmas Bureau is a 501(C)(3) non-profit, non-denominational agency created to provide the county's low-income families with food and gifts during the holiday season. read more>>
