The wonderful people who spend many hours each week voluntering for Helping Hands of Trigg County, Inc. deserve the thanks of all of Trigg County. For the most part they are our “Newcomers’ or “Transplants” or the special people dedicated to helping those people who find themselves needing help. The Board members of Helping Hands spend literally hours each week solving problems that arise or doing physical work to keep our organization afloat. We do many things of which citizens of our county are unaware and there is not space to name them all but to name a few: we have a computer whiz who goes on line each week to get free medicine, each person who gets food has a web page with all members of a family and the date served, we serve food to as many as 200 families a month (we buy most of the food), we pay on electric and water bills, buy medicine for those who have no other source, we buy new clothing each school year for as many as 50 kids and the list goes on. Two of us take all calls 7 days a week.

We especially owe so much to the citizens of our county who open their pocketbooks when we need them. I won’t mention each name because they don’t want publicity. We have lost some of our most generous donors such as Bob Broadbent and Jim Ricks but we find others carry on in their place. Your dollars and dimes are what keeps our doors open.

It may seem to these folks that their work and dedication are unappreciated from the publicity generated by the problem which we are having with “The Board of Adjustment”, whatever that is, and the determination of a couple of their members to keep us from moving into our new location on Line Street in Cadiz. But I want to assure you that this is just a blip on the screen and a tempest in a teapot and will soon be resolved and we of Helping Hands will go on as before. We have been serving our citizens for 16 years and have run into other obstickles before. Rest assured that good always triumphs over evil and you can count on our being around for many more years thanks to all of you.
