Haven Helping Hands Distribution Center
115 S.W. 3rd. Street, Mineral Wells, Texas 76067
940-325-5654

                                                                          More than a food bank:

SEE WHAT WE DO:


In 2015 New Haven Helping Hands Distribution Center handed out over 588,900 pounds of food. 95.5% of our clients had an income (the working poor) and 51% were senior citizens on a fixed income. This is a common story that we hear: One of these seniors came in with her husband. He was pushing an oxygen bottle and looking rather pale. She stated that they had just left the hospital after a weeks stay and they wanted to stop by Helping Hands and get food because they had spent all their money at the hospital and did not have any food at their home. She said their Social Security check would not be there to help them for 1 more week. What a shame that many of our seniors must live that way. We are thankful to help them.
