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!

I love the Helping Hands Food Pantry. I volunteered there for a week, it was the best week of my life. The joy it was to serve the people in that area, and watch the faces when we gave them food. Not only did I get to serve but I prayed for 68 families and passed out prayer rocks. It was very touching to listen to their stories, and made me realize what a servant is all about. I would love to go back and spend some more time there. I believe each person in the Lawrenceburg area needs to volunteer at least one day to see the joy in people heart. This is what we are called to do. God Bless David for all he does to help the community.

I help serve meals once a month at Open Hands with a group of people from different churches in our area. The building is fantastic, handicap accessible, and serves so many needs. The kitchen is fully equipped, with plenty of room to prepare and serve food. There is enough seating in the dining area for 80 or so people, including a highchair and booster seat. The pantry area keeps non-perishables, breads, fresh fruits, and vegetables on their numerous shelving units, and I've noticed deep freezers and refrigerators for essential perishable items. I know volunteers do deliver meals and groceries to those unable to leave their homes.

In my experience, the people who come are kind, warm, and grateful. They come from all different backgrounds, and ages. Many eat as though they haven't in a while, preferring meats and high fat foods to sustain them, especially in the winter. Open Hands fills an immense need.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If I had to make changes to this organization (and had a million dollars), I would... pave the parking lot, get a pantry-mobile to pick up people without transportation on cold or rainy days (the social aspect of eating together is so important), knock down a wall to expand the dining area, install a greenhouse so fresh vegetables wouldn't be luxury items, and place a prayer request box near the entry.

God has definately blessed Lawrenceburg with the Pantry. It strives to meet the needs of the comunity with food, medical and dental services. The staff truly care about the people they serve. I know they work hard at what they do! The needs of the community continue to climb so the need for Open Hands continues to rise also. And they continue to look for ways to help this area. I wish I could give more of my time to volunteer there than I do.

During my work with the Pantry, I can see how hard they work to make a little go a long way. Their goal is to make sure that the goods they receive get in the right hands and they do a great job meeting that goal. They leave an impressive mark on the community.

david, kim, debbie, and katie were extremly helpful thoughtful and considerate when assisting folks from the community here in anderson county. their sincerity and geniune affection for the community in which they have chosen to serve is evident in the conversations shared with individuals, who are diverse in their walk of life yet similar in their need for a hand up. keep up the excellent work.
