Thank you so much Temple Elks Lodge # 138, Temple, Texas for your generous donation! We are so thankful for our partnership with you guys!
Kimberly, our Volunteer Programs and Services Assistant, celebrates 18 years serving at Helping Hands tomorrow! We all love her so much and are so thankful for all she does for our neighbors! ❤️
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” Today, we remember a great champion of love, unity, and peace- may we show love to our neighbors of all kinds today and every day in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
In 2021, our volunteers logged 7,452.5 hours of service! We couldn't be more thankful for the time that they sacrifice to love our neighbors. If you are interested in volunteering in 2022, reach out to Bekah at [email protected].
In 2021, we served 13,341 local families (or 35,271 individuals). Your generosity throughout the past year ensured that each of these families were able to put food on the table, including at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thank you for loving our neighbors!
Did you know that 497,613 pounds of food left our pantry in 2021? That's a little more than 40,000 pounds per month! A big thank you to everyone who donated food or held their own food drive- you helped make that possible! You can always drop off food donations on Mondays from 12-6, or Tuesday-Thursday from 10-4.
Did you know that this semester we will provide 110 backpack meals each week to Belton ISD students? These are bags that students can take home in case they don't have access to food when they're not in school. Each bag includes juice, milk, cereal, protein items, fruit, and fun snacks! If you and your family are grocery shopping this weekend, grab some extra items and drop them off at our building during business hours!
Items Needed:
Capri Suns / Juice Boxes
Individual Cereal
Ravioli, Mac & Cheese (pop-top or individual serving)
Oatmeal Packets
Crackers, Granola Bars, Fruit Snacks
Individually Packaged Fruit Cups
Milk Boxes (Shelf-Stable)
A lot of our neighbors struggle to keep their homes warm in the colder months. You can help by sponsoring a space heater at this link: https://donorbox.org/heater-drive . Let's keep our community warm!
We're back! We will resume normal operations today, January 3rd. The Neighborhood Food Pantry will be open from 12-6pm.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Helping Hands!
Merry Christmas from all of us at Helping Hands Ministry! We will be closed today until January 3rd, 2022. Enjoy the holidays with those you love!

Helping Hands Ministry’s vision is to eliminate all physical and spiritual poverty in East Bell County. Helping Hands Ministry seeks to eliminate poverty in East Bell County through relief, development, and advocacy.

Helping Hands Ministry was founded in 1995 by the Belton Ministers Fellowship, an ecumenical gathering of local ministers, to serve the Belton community with a centralized food pantry. In the beginning, individuals from several local churches volunteered their time to serve 30 families in the basement of First United Methodist Church of Belton. The pantry later moved to First Christian Church in B
