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.
The Anderson County Senior Center works closely with our Open Hands Food Pantry. Their volunteers are friendly, open to special requests, and work closely with clients to handle their needs. Our community is blessed to have this special resource. Times are tough. Many seniors have never had to use a food pantry, and they are always so pleased that their needs can be met so quickly.
I have had the honor to partner with Open Hands for quite a while. The charity and compassion as well as long range vision that the pantry has in serving the community has enable us, Anderson Co. Recovery, to better sever the needs of our people. There is an outstanding spirit of excellence exemplified in the quality and commitment that each of the leaders and all of the volunteers have the creates a safe place in which people who have needs can feel loved and cared for. I and our ministry are delighted to serve with Open Hands for many years to come.
