Clay County Helping Hands, which is a 501(C)(3) organization, located at 682 Clay County Highway in Celina, is now under new management. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on May 3 to celebrate the revitalization of this program. The purpose of Helping Hands is to aid those affected by crisis or hardship by providing temporary help with food, clothing and other types of assistance.
The new director of operations is Carol Carman, who works under the direction of a governing board, and is in charge of the day-to-day management of the store. Her duties include things such as organizing the acceptance and sorting of donations, assisting clients and managing the volunteers who work there. The store is open Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and on Friday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Proceeds from the store are utilized to fulfill the mission of helping those in need.
