OUR WORK

DENATE

EDUCATION

Hand and Feet Ministries has been facilitating short-term mission trips for churches, schools, families, and individuals since 2000. These trips provide an opportunity for Christians to share the love of Christ by serving individuals that have been effected by poverty, sickness, abandonment, and natural disasters. Currently we are offering trips to Piedras Negras, Mexico, and Nava, Mexico.

Nava School

Since 2010, Hands and Feet has been partnering with Lazaro Cardenas School (Nava School) located in Nava, Mexico to provide a safe learning environment for the children in the neighborhood where the school is located. It is a very poor area and many families cannot afford to send their children to school. Our goal is to provide an education to the children of this community while also instilling in them a love for Christ, respect for their community, and a desire to further their education and break the cycle of poverty into which they were born. We also serve within the community to promote physically and spiritually healthy families, and safe and clean environments for education and recreation.

Trade Classes

In 2016, we began classes geared towards the parents of the students at Nava School. Many of the adults in the town of Nava have only a basic elementary education and lack knowledge of a trade that would allow them to work and support their family. We aim to equip these adults by giving them workshops and classes adapted specifically for them and the area that they live in and, once having completed the course, assisting in finding job options for each member of the class. We began with sewing classes for the mothers of the students at Nava School, teaching the basics of sewing and how to make simple items such as aprons. Our objective is to expand the courses that we offer, having classes available for men and women covering several different vocational areas.

College Sponsorship Program

Our College Sponsorship Program is a program that we begin in 2015. The goal of this program is to help determined, hardworking young people who do not have the means to attend college and offer them a full college scholarship in exchange for working and using their talents and skills at Nava School. The program began with a Gastronomy student named Luis. In return for his scholarship, he runs the feeding program at Nava School. He is using the knowledge and tools that he is learning in school to serve the students at the school. We hope to give these students the financial support that they need to get a college degree while giving them the opportunity to give back to and serve their community.

MISSIONS

Heavenly Hand-Me-Downs

Mission

To serve God and others by tending to the needs of those in our community through love, prayer, and provision of basic necessities while providing a clean and affordable shopping experience for Adairsville and surrounding areas.

 

A Special Place to Shop

We are blessed daily with donations from our community and the surrounding areas and are pleased to offer clothing, furniture, antiques, home decor, electronics, books, and unique finds all at very low prices. You will find many name brands throughout the store, and some items that are brand new. We run weekly sales for even bigger savings. You never know what you will find, which is why many of our customers come in multiple times a week.

 

A Place of Solace

We want our customers to feel the love of Jesus as soon as they walk through the door. That’s why the store is always playing praise and worship music. We have many regulars who come visit daily, weekly, and monthly, without making a purchase, just to chat and see what’s new. We also encourage our customers to share their stories with us so that we can pray with immediately and throughout the week. At Heavenly Hand-Me-Downs, we care less about transactions and more about relationships.

 

Blessings for the Community

Life is not easy, and sometimes we can hit some hard times without warning. We want to help! Though our ministry cannot provide financial support, we open our store to those in desperate need. Many families have been able to obtain clothing, linens, dishes, and other necessities through our voucher program.

 

Outreach

When natural disasters affect entire communities, we jump to action. In the aftermath of the 2013 tornado that decimated many homes in Adairsville and Calhoun, we joined with other organizations to gather supplies, toiletries, and clothing and dispersed them throughout the area. We were also able to recruit volunteers to join us, to complete much needed construction projects.
