Dear Community Friend,

We need your help! Our children and teens are looking forward to another fun-filled summer, and we want to give it to them!

Each year, many children look forward to a summer during which they get to explore new opportunities and experience new things, and we are so excited to give the children of Helping Hands a chance to do just that. We have coordinated out-of-town day trips intended to educate, entertain and introduce new experiences. Though we are grateful for the opportunities in our community, we believe offering new and/or first-time experiences will make a lasting impact on the lives of our children.

Helping Hands is a home for abused, abandoned and/or neglected children in DSS custody. Because we provide 24-hour care, out-of-town trips can be costly. Therefore, we are asking for a monetary investment from you that will help our children experience exciting trips to the following places: Splash in the Boro (Statesboro, Ga.); Carowinds Amusement Park (Charlotte, N.C.); CNN Studio Tour and Georgia Aquarium (Atlanta, Ga.); and Alligator Adventure (Myrtle Beach, S.C.).

You may choose to sponsor the full cost of a trip or sponsor a child or multiple children. If you are eager to help, please complete the enclosed form and return it with the appropriate payment method. You also can visit our website www.helpinghandsaiken.org to make a secure, online investment.

Should you choose to pay online, please indicate in the “notes” section which trip and the number of children you are sponsoring. Please make checks payable to Helping Hands, Inc. and mail to P.O. Box 503, Aiken, SC 29802. *In the event of full trip sponsorship, Helping Hands reserves the right to assign donations to other trips as needed.
Your investment will help make this summer one that our children will always remember! Thank you for your consideration! If you have questions, please call us at (803) 648-3456.

Sincerely,
Carmen Landy
Chief Executive Officer
Helping Hands, Inc.
