Brooke wrote, "When PeCo Grows Together reached out to us about picking up leftover clothes/baby items from the Consignment sale, I offered information to 4 other free clothing banks in Perry County to contact to come after the event to take any and all leftover clothing. I told them that I would come for some items that the other clothing banks wouldn't want. When I arrived, I was informed all 4 clothing banks were coming to partake in the free leftover clothes. That makes me happy when they can all benefit together and be together and know about each other."
That's PECO. That's Joining Hands! #StrongTogether #givingHELPgivingHOPE
A client called into our office and spoke to Brooke. She wanted to personally thank Brooke and Sheree because, "she knows we have been working so hard to get her a lift chair (it was donated) - she was so grateful, said how beautiful, clean it was and that she will get a good night's sleep tonight because she has needed one to sleep in. - God Bless us!"
If it is not listed on here, please call us to ask.
We had a a Perry County Disabled Navy Vet in need of a bed. He was sleeping on hospital bed that is similar to sleeping on the floor.
We communicated this need with the Join Hands Network email list. Two days later a nice single bed frame, headboard and foot-board were donated and Join Hands purchased a new mattress to fit.
One of you had an Electric Dryer available.
We connected them with a Perry County family who needed one. This family had been struggling with purchasing a new one. Not any longer.
This summer we've had many Perry County individuals who needed new air conditioner window units because they're on Oxygen.
We've been able to meet these needs because of Perry Countians who've donated such units empowering us to meet these needs!
We had a single mom of 2 kiddos who was in need of a bed for herself so that she didn't have to sleep on the floor any longer.
Within 3 days a brand new bed, frame, sheets and mattress liner was delivered to her. She was beyond grateful for Join Hands Ministry and our network, you, Perry County!
We received a referral from Perry County Office of Aging. It was about a Perry County lady who needed a walker that had a seat with brakes. She had been waiting almost a year. She also is a cancer survivor.
We did an intake with her that Thursday. That Saturday a brand new walker (fire engine red) was delivered. It has brakes and a seat on it.
More recently we started receiving slightly used scooters. Our team cleans them and checks them over to go to Perry Countians in need but can't afford.
From one of our partner agency workers, "I was just talking to this woman yesterday and she told me how a motor scooter would make a world of difference in her life. This is definitely an answer to prayer!" - M
