Two organizations that assist those in need in Huntington are looking for some help.
Both Helping Hand Rescue Mission and Brett’s Bicycle Recycle provide assistance to residents, the rescue mission through a variety of food, language and clothing programs, while the bicycle program takes in bikes, repairs them and donates them to those who need transportation.
The bicycle recyclers need a van or truck to transport their bikes to community events where they give them away. They are running a fundraising campaign to buy a van if no one has a vehicle they can donate.
Helping Hands is looking for space. The Railroad Street building is packed and has limited parking. Huntington Assembly of God has helped ease the strain, making room for special projects for babies, and an ESL program, and Bethel Lutheran also hosts an ESL class.
