We’re celebrating Heart + Hand as our September #SwipeItForGood partner of the month!

Heart + Hand Outreach Ministries offers local community services including low cost shopping at their thrift store, food pantry, job training, utility assistance, medical supplies, and vouchers that can be used to get toys and clothing for foster placements.

“Heart + Hand provides low cost shopping for the entire community. The proceeds from our thrift store sales are used to support our programs!”, explained Jenny Keener, Volunteer and Donation Coordinator.

Element is supporting Heart + Hand this month by collecting cans and raising money!

We are hosting two canned food drives. For each can collected, we’re donating 25 cents.

We asked Jenny how the community can continue to help Heart and Hand all year round.
