From the standpoint of a family receiving a cow or a flock of chickens or whatever from Heifer, International, Harvest of Hands is very worthwhile. We give thousands to Heifer International, and therefore have provided much needed aid and sustenance to countless families. Families that otherwise have virtually nothing.
From the standpoint of the thousands of children who have received meals we have packed and paid for, Harvest of Hands is very worthwhile. Those meals may have saved their lives.
From the standpoint of those in Buffalo and surrounding communities who use the Buffalo Food Shelf, Harvest of Hands is worthwhile. Those families have received thousands of dollars’ worth of food purchased by HOH contributions. Their lives are definitely impacted by Harvest of Hands.
From a personal standpoint, it is a wonderful feeling to have contributed to the success of Harvest of Hands, and its mission to provide food for those who are in need. The companionship, the drive, the giving, the creativeness, the community goodwill, the cooperation, the excitement, and the friendships produced make Harvest of Hands worthwhile. So many at Zion are part of Harvest of Hands … it is probably the largest mission at Zion. Its success depends on all who contribute in any way—-cooking, baking, creating items for sale, setting up tables, cleaning, white elephant, donations of time, talent, money, and much more. The success of Harvest of Hands depends on everyone at Zion making it a success and believing it is a worthwhile mission.
