Helping Hands Mission

handsThe Helping Hands Fund, administered by St. John’s, is an emergency fund for individuals and families who live in the Oregon-Brooklyn school district. The fund is supported by donations from St. John’s members, other area churches, and individuals in the community. Last year, the fund provided over $10,000 in emergency assistance to about 100 households. In 2013, the Helping Hands fund was the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation.
