Local Non Profit Provides Solutions for Elderly and Disabled

VANCOUVER, Wash., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- What happens when you are out in the community serving the elderly and disabled, and you continually see critical needs that are not being met?

Four Helping Hands events will be held in 2008, with projects including home winterization, spring cleaning, summer landscaping, and fall repairs. The first 2008 Helping Hands event was held on March 15th, and consisted of two concurrent projects. The first team of volunteers gathered at th
