  • Progress 150% 150%

We need your help! As things slowly get back to normal, our children and teens are looking forward to another fun‐filled summer and we want
to give it to them!

Each summer, we coordinate out‐of‐town day trips intended to educate, entertain and introduce new
experiences. Though we are grateful for the countless opportunities in our community, we believe offering
new and/or first‐time experiences will make a lasting impact on the lives of our children. Last year, we stayed in town for special events but were able to visit the beach which was a first for some of our residents! Their expressions of excitement and wonder are what continues to motivate us to coordinate these trips and ask friends like you for help.

Helping Hands is a home for abused, abandoned and/or neglected children in DSS custody. Because we
provide 24-hour care, out‐of‐town trips can be costly. Therefore, we are asking for a monetary investment from you that will help our children experience exciting trips.

You may choose to sponsor the full cost of a trip or sponsor a child or multiple children. If you are eager to help, please pick a trip on the right side of this page.

To pay with check, please make it payable to Helping Hands, Inc. and mail to P.O. Box 503, Aiken, SC 29802. *In the event of full trip sponsorship, Helping Hands reserves the right to assign donations to other trips as needed.

Your investment will help make this summer one that our children will always remember! Thank you for your consideration! If you have questions, please call us at (803) 648-3456.
