Helping Hands would like to extend a heart-felt Thank You to the Pokagon Fund for providing nearly $3,000 that was made available to L.A.D.D. (Living Alternatives for the Developmentally Disabled) in Dowagiac. They in turn use the funding to provide new clothing to their Dowagiac residents. Care-providers shopped for these residents throughout the summer and into the fall season purchasing new clothing essentials; everything from shoes, hoodies, pants and school clothes. Helping Hands is grateful to provide funding for these basic needs that some LADD residents could not afford after living expenses.
This funding allowed us to partner with L.A.D.D. and increase our outreach into the community.
