On this episode of the Shepherdcast, we continue our podcast’s first ever Spotlight on Outreach series, where we will sit down with representatives from both outreach groups at our church and nonprofits in our community to talk about their ministry and, if the spirit moves you, how you can help them This week, Jacob Schandel sits down with Becky Larson of the Helping Hands Network on location at HHN. In this podcast, they discuss HHN’s ministry in our area, including its food pantry and clothes closet, both here for those in need in the Sandy Valley community. They also discuss some of HHN’s seasonal projects, including the school supply drive, which is currently running as of the publication date of this podcast. The list of needs for that as well as the link to the AmazonSmile charity list for this is here: http://sotvchurch.com/2019/07/14/hhn-to-collect-school-supplies-for-2019-2020-school-year/.
