Helping Families in Need Society is a small group of dedicated volunteers who take time to pickup and distribute used household items to women from transition houses, single moms on income assistance, new immigrant families and needy families in our community.

By donating your used household goods you can make a difference to families in need and help give them a new start.

With your donations and those from others in our community we are already making a huge difference.

Let's become partners in caring for others in our community.
