Sunset Presbyterian Church friends and members support Helping Hands by donating financially, through food drives, and by donating gently used clothing and shoes. Financial donations provide funds to purchase food from the Oregon Food Bank. Retail stores provide weekly food donations (bread, dairy and produce). We are also blessed with some clothing and food drive donations from corporations within our community. Helping Hands is powered by volunteers who desire to follow the example of Christ by serving others.
