Helping Hands Ministries

Pat Rice told us that Helping Hands Ministries has been in existence in Attala County Mississippi for over 30 years. Marie Harmon who makes handmade pillows and throws  to be given  to hospitals and nursing homes. Children at Blair Batson Children Hospital in Jackson Mississippi – upon admittance, receive a handmade bag with a pillow, stuffed toy etc, to comfort them. Children in our local Baptist Hospital, also receive a comfort bags to soften the experience. It is hard to estimate how far our outreach reaches. In a years time, my estimation would be close to a thousand. Those who volunteer, such as Marie Harmon 88 years old whom I wish to feature makes the pillows and stuffs them with Polly-Fil Brand Fiberfill on her on dime. The average age of our volunteers range from 70 to 88 years of age. We do it because we care.
