Homebound: Delivering food to those without transportation, especially during snow months.
Kids for Christmas: Any child under the age 18 years in the home of those receiving services are provided backpacks with various age appropriate items to ensure that all children have a present under the tree for Christmas.
Easter for Senior Ladies: Mothers of Preschooler’s, or MOPS, make baskets filled with body wash, lotions, shampoos, and conditioners geared toward senior ladies. Many of this year’s recipients were extremely pleased saying, “It’s been many years since I’ve gotten an Easter present”. Smiles and appreciation were abundant.
Christmas Stockings for Seniors: The church of New Castle provides stuffed handmade stockings for our senior patrons.
The Henry County Help Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to help residents in need of food, toiletries, personal hygiene products, educational and moral support. The organization is made up of individuals, businesses and churches that volunteer to make the program possible.
The residents that receive help from the center are in need of support and often live well below the national poverty level. The recipients are made of of all types of cultural, demographic and socio-economic backgrounds and must participate in an interview process to receive the products.
We encourage all of the visitors to this site to read through the information and learn more about the Henry County community and the Help Center. Please feel free to contact us with questions about volunteering, donating or if you know someone who is in need of support.
Thank you and God Bless.
