Holiday events at AHH

We’ve had a busy few weeks here at A Helping Hand! Along with our Giving Tuesday fundraiser, we’ve been a part of two great events in the run up to the holidays.

The Great Thanksgiving Listen

On November 17, Activate Good gathered a group of volunteers to participate in The Great Thanksgiving Listen, a national project organized by Story Corps. A Helping Hand and several other local organizations arranged for seniors to come and be interviewed for the national archives. The volunteers used the Story Corps app to record each interview, and the interviews are published and collected here. Please take a listen – our clients have fascinating stories! Read more



Jim volunteers in the community and in the board room

After 4 years of service, Jim is one of A Helping Hand’s longest-serving volunteers. Over the past few years, he’s assisted more than 40 clients – some just once, and others on a weekly basis. One client he’s worked with for three years, a total of 135 visits! Jim is an older adult himself, but his jovial personality and lively energy make him seem 20 years younger than his true age. After helping with his mother’s affairs as she aged in an assisted living facility, he wanted to help others stay in their own homes and live independently. He found AHH and has continued volunteering ever since.

Volunteering with AHH has opened his eyes to the services available for seniors that he knows he may need to use one day. This past year, Jim expanded his role and joined A Helping Hand’s board of directors. Read more
