I have been a leader in the Boy Scouts of America for 8 years and have had our scouts donate to Helping Hand House for 7 of those years. The scouts really enjoy helping out this great organization, especially when they hear how families have greatly imroved their lives. The Helping Hand House is doing things our government cannot do, and that is to help get families back on their feet. Through the Helping Hand House we are able to touch so many kids lives and make a difference.
