We moved the ribbon cutting inside because it was pouring rain outside. There were conference, the mayor of Smithville, the Chamber of Commerce President April Daniels came, and about 30 other people showed up. There was punch and cookies served to create festivities! Everyone was truly so thrilled to see the house and hear all the plans for The Helping Hands of Hope.
Lou Rose donated a lot of the furniture, along with the Born Again Emporium in Smithville, TX.
The founders are Pastor Cindy Layton, Sharlene Scheler (Westley Nurse), and Trisha Menasco. They got together and came up with this idea to help fill the need.
The community is incredibly supported by providing clothing, diapers, money, and encouraging words.
Come and visit us on Tuesdays from 12pm-4pm at 206 NE 6th Street, Smithville, TX.
