*** Helping Hands Julia Rose Foundation 4th Annual Holiday Drive***

Helping Hands has a new name: The Jullia Rose Foundation. The Jullia Rose Foundation is a registered 501 nonprofit committed to helping children in need. Last year because of your donations we were able to give 29 children with autism Ipad's to help them communicate. This year we would again like to help children with special needs, through a program called 'Project Lifesaver'. 'Project Lifesaver' is dedicated to providing timely responses to save lives and reduce potential injury for children and adults who wander. Click here for information on how to donate.
