A different kind of paper drive slated

Helping Hands is collecting paper towels and toilet paper for two local charities all during the month of July.

Just pick up an extra package or two when you find them on sale and drop them off at Helping Hands Ministry on Peavine Rd. If you want a receipt for tax purposes, come during our office hours.

If you are late or early put them in our red drop box! It’s a simple thing but remember  food stamps don’t cover toiletries or paper products (and Sears doesn’t give out free catalogs any more). Save the small samples of soap, shampoo etc. from your travels this summer—for some people it’s all they have to keep clean.

Helping Hands Ministry is located at 4188 Peavine Rd. in Crossville. Any donations to them in goods or money are tax deductible as they are a 501(c) 3 public charity registered with the IRS. Call 707-8606 for more information.
