Who Are We?

Helping Hands was founded in 2008 by the Olympia Pacesetters 4-H Club and Stanford Council of Churches. We are located in the parsonage of the Stanford Church of God, where we operate the food pantry and clothing exchange. Most food for the food pantry is donated by Midwest Food Bank. Please browse our website for more information about the food pantry, clothing exchange, Stanford Sprouts Community Garden, and updates on our blog and Facebook page.

Food, clothing, small household goods, and cash donations are accepted. However, we ask that donations be delivered on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons when the center is open and not left on the front porch. This helps protect the donated items from the weather and allows volunteers to display the items for clients in a timely manner.

Volunteers are also welcomed. Please email or call for more information.
