Helping Needy Families Have A Brighter Future
Welcome to Our New sletter!
We desire to keep our HGH family up-to-date with what’s happened in the recent past, current goings on, and what the near future has in store.
Featured Event
Home Visits Concluded
We conducted 322 HOME VISITS throughout Greene, Christian, and Webster counties and are now getting ready for the next phase of our Christmas project. 
We will be preparing shop sheets (no easy task for so many families and kids), ordering and delivery to the warehouse of many larger gifts (bikes, furniture, appliances, etc.), and preparing the warehouse for the wonderful chaos of December.
DECEMBER'S JOYFUL CRAZINESS
