Heart + Hand Stories
``Sean is a five year old that accompanied his mother recently when she came to our South Charleston office for food assistance. When our volunteer wheeled a shopping cart of food out of the panty into the hallway, Sean jumped up and down and said “Mommy look at all that food. We are going to be able to eat for days!”
``Roger is a communications specialist that had long periods of unemployment over the past couple of years. We helped him keep the electricity in his home once in 2017 and again in 2018. In December of 2019, his wife came into the Putnam County office and said her husband wanted to make a donation in appreciation for all we did for them. Now they both have good jobs, in fact Roger is working in Hawaii. She wrote us a check for $500 and with tears in her eyes, thanked us for being there when they most needed help.``
``The last day of school before Thanksgiving, Heart + Hand volunteers had really stuffed the 66 South Charleston Middle School weekend food bags with extra food to help students get through a week without free breakfast and lunch at school. Two of the students were seen looking in their bags as they walked home that day. One student said “Look at all this food. I’ll have enough to share with my sister!”
