The people are amazing and its wonderful that they take the time to care enough to volunteer and help others
Our Sunday School class has volunteered there and served over 70 people supper. It was an awesome expierence. We were blessed as well as the people we fed. Our church collects food donations for Open Hands throughout the year. It is one of the ways God provides us to serve others. Open Hands is a wonderful organization and my prayer is that they would be able to continue to serve the community and show the love of Jesus Christ to the people who use their services.
Leadership in the organization has mobilized all of the churches in our community to participate and pitch in to help our community. Everyone is welcome to contribute and volunteer and I have enjoyed working together with other Christians regardless of denomination. The experience has been such a blessing!
As an experienced charity worker and leader, I find this organization to be a life line to many residents in our community who need food to survive. The organization is professionally operated to enable anyone in need to food to obtain it when necessary. It is an excellent community servant in that it works well with other community entities both in supportive and receiving roles. Open Hands Pantry provides opportunities for people of all ages to learn about the importance of giving to others in need, as well as working as a volunteer to benefit others.
I always feel really good about contributing to this cause. I know the food and items we give are going to be used right here in our own community and managed well. I also know people who have benefited at times when they needed these services. It is a wonderful group that brings together people from all over the community and serves our neighbors and friends in a loving, positive, and healthy way.
Lamp & Light Ministries/Open Hands Food Pantry has been an important part of Anderson County outreach to those in need, as well as those who are blessed to volunteer and donate. David Montgomery has been an important asset to this ministry and he has the right heart and the right skills for this ministry. It's not easy, but the volunteers and donors have been integral in keeping this place running. They've helped so many families and individuals over the years. We highly recommend this nonprofit and will continue to support them throughout the years. ~ Arthur & Rebecca P.
