The Helping Hands Group offers “caring people to help people in need in Canyon Lake and the surrounding areas.” The goal of the non-profit organization is to serve the disabled, elderly and people in crisis with compassion and care.
On behalf of the Pickleball Club, the board of directors recently presented Helping Hands Group Director Robert Sasser with $1,678. Pickleball Club President Steve Libring and his wife Diane matched the funds raised to help the club exceed last year’s goal of $1,500. Helping Hands Group plans to use the donation toward Valentine’s Day food bags for local disabled seniors.
