FPC Teams Up with Helping Hands of Georgetown

As I am sure many of you are aware, there is an organization in town called Helping Hands of Georgetown.

The purpose of the group is to provide meals for the homeless in our community. One meal is a Community Dinner on Sunday evening, served from the 8th Street parking lot across from the Georgetown Library.

Three churches presently provide that meal one time each month. That leaves one Sunday in the month uncovered. Our Mission Committee has proposed that our church provide a meal on the third Sunday. This will begin in October. The dinner feeds from 70 to 75 people.

Helping Hands also serves 600 brown bag lunches a week, and our church groups and members have helped with those brown bag sandwiches and items. The Helping Hands Mobile Food Pantry was launched in March 2020 as the pandemic hit, and it now serves 100 pantry bags each week throughout Georgetown.

If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact the Church Office.
