About Us

Pine Grove Cadets

The Cadets Club of Pine
Grove collected food for us!

Helping Hands has been organized as a response to the needs of our community. Located in Howard City, we are a united effort of the Tri-County area churches to share the love of God and further His Kingdom by providing emergency food assistance, referral for counseling and a place to learn how you can help others.

There are a three ways you can help...

Pray - There are deep-seated reasons why poverty exists in a wealthy country like ours. Pray for those in need, pray for those seeking to help others and to change policies that reinforce hunger and homelessness.

Volunteer - We are always in need of a few extra hands. Please check our Events page for upcoming events where we need help!  You may also call us at 231-937-5177, send us an e-mail, or fill out our volunteer form.
