I’m writing to give a big “hats off’ to Helping Hands. As a new resident to Cadiz, I have been amazed at all this small community has to offer. Immediately, I was enveloped in southern hospitality and an inquiry of “would you like to help?” It is surprising that a community the size of Cadiz has enough volunteers to staff a food bank that feeds 200 families a month.
Helping Hands also has a resale shop located across from the downtown Bank of Cadiz drive-up that offers many opportunities to wander through the aisles and find bargains. It also gives the public a place to donate their items that they no longer need, but are still a value to someone new.
It’s exciting to also mention that Helping Hands has opened a new venture called the “Clothes Closet.” They have both men and women’s clothes attractively arranged and all in very good condition. The Clothes Closet is located on Line Street in the spacious basement under the “Food Pantry.” Both shops are open on opposite days and at convenient times for the public.
My husband and I have moved here in anticipation of retiring in a few years, but it’s so nice to know that Cadiz has so many opportunities to get involved and meet such dedicated people. I have been welcomed warmly and even though I have joined in many other activities, Helping Hands has a special spot in my heart for all they do for those needing extra support.
