Hearts and Hands celebrating 15th
Volunteers gathered last Monday at the First Presbyterian Church for the annual Hearts and Hands Volunteers Dinner. Team captains were announced along with seven project homes.
Now in its 15th year, Hearts and Hands began when members of the First Presbyterian Church volunteered to do repairs on one area home as a mission project. Sponsored by the Ministerial Alliance, as of this year, eight congregations are actively involved with support from all Pawhuska churches.
Hearts and Hands Director Rev. Ken Woodhams expressed his appreciation to the volunteers and businesses.
“We appreciate the outpouring of community support for this annual ‘neighbor helping neighbor’ event,” he said.
Official workday is slated for this coming Saturday, April 26. Volunteers will gather at the Methodist Family Life Center between 8-8:30 a.m. for a light breakfast before heading out to the job sites.
Tickets for the bargello-style hand-pieced quilt will also be available. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5. Drawing for the quilt will be held at noon when the workers reassemble for lunch at the same location.
