For Immediate Release: September 25, 2017
Thanks to the generosity of kind donors the Albany Helping Hands 19th Anniversary Fundraiser “Is off to a great start with us at 45% if our goal” according to John Donovan, Development Director of Albany Helping Hands.
The campaign goal- Raise $19,000 in 19 days for the 19th Anniversary.
Nineteen years ago, Albany Helping Hands became an Independent Faith-Based Non-Denominational 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit corporation. Albany Helping Hands roots go back to the 1980's, sheltering those in need at a small church at the corner of First and Main in Albany.
“This ministry began with Pastor Les Bailey providing sandwiches to the needy, and a night of shelter in his church building during the cold wintry months. Today, we on average, provide over 7,000 meals a month, a shelter for over a 100 folks at night, as well as much-needed clothing.” Stated Pastor John Leon the new Executive Director at Albany Helping Hands.
Executive Director, Pastor John Leon noted in his online blog “Without question, God has blessed our mission here in Albany. So, it is during this month of September we want to take the time to remember, as well as celebrate our small beginnings.”
Join us in celebrating the many successes in the past 19 years by contributing to our Anniversary Fundraiser.
