In August of 2016, bright green and pink boxes started to pop up around Ankeny. A group in the community called “A Helping Hand” started the effort. The goal is to fill the boxes with non-perishable food and personal hygiene items so that people in need can access them easily and anytime. Holy Trinity joined the effort about a year ago. Two “Helping Hand” boxes were installed at each end of our south parking lot. Church School kids and families have been leading the effort to keep them filled with help from the HTLC Food Pantry.
We want to expand this ministry to include everybody. If you want to help feed and supply people who are in need, you can sign-up to sponsor a box for a week anytime it fits your schedule. After you sign-up for a week (or several), click on the link below to download a shopping list. Simply pick up those items when you next go to the store, and then stop by and fill the box any time during your scheduled week. That is all there is to it. One sign-up to fill the box one-time during one week. It is a great family project. One hour of service for Silver Cord students will be available for each week the student serves in this way.
This is an expansion of our growing ministry to those who are hungry in this world. We invite you to make it part of your way of following Christ.
