Together we can make a difference…
Welcome! As I sit down to put into words what Sandy’s Helping Hands is all about, I have realized one important thing. I am not a good blogger!!
Just as the journey begins for us as we are getting our feet off the ground with a few special events, hopefully my blogging skills will improve too!
Who are we? A group of ladies who wanted to form a nonprofit charitable company to help others in our home town of Sandy, Oregon. We also wanted a place where our children could volunteer and see the value in helping others.
Our focus is on ways to give back to our community through various avenues. Maybe you have heard of the term “pay forward.” Our goal is to connect volunteers with our neighbors who are in need help by “helping forward”
“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop
I truly believe this….. it only takes a moment to carry out the garbage for someone who is elderly, had surgery or is sick with the flu. But what a huge difference that little act can make in their world.
Sign Up! It only takes a minute to make that difference. You can volunteer as often or as little as you have time for. There will be plenty of diverse opportunities!
Please, Post A Need if you know someone who needs a helping hand. We have volunteers waiting to help! If you have a charitable event happening with a group or school, let us know and we will gladly post it for all volunteers to see and/or help with.
This has been my life-long dream, and I am so lucky that in our close knit community of Sandy there are many wonderful people with the same dream. So let’s get together and make it happen!
