Security Department Begins Volunteer Program at Helping Hands Ministries

Posted on January 13, 2014.

Helping Hands 1HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 13, 2014 – Members of High Point University’s security team are taking it upon themselves to give back to the community.

They’re volunteering their free time each month at Helping Hands Ministries in High Point to organize, box and then load food into cars for families in need.

Helping Hands is a nonprofit ministry serving those in need in the greater High Point area, and is a partner agency of Second Harvest Food Bank in Northwest N.C.

Security team members will be at the ministries every second Thursday of each month. Officers have also set up a donation box where they can drop-off nonperishable items to be donated to the ministries each week.

“We are excited about our partnership with HPU and the team of Security Officers who are as committed to serving and strengthening our community as we are,” says Dara Ferris, Administrative Director of Helping Hands. “We could not accomplish all that we do for over 10,000 individuals each year without volunteers.”

“Local people come here,” says HPU officer Harry Hueston. “We wanted to do something for the local community to show our commitment to them.”
