An article in The Patch about Haley's Helping Hands!

My primary focus for Haley’s Helping Hands is to provide gently used clothing, shoes, and sports equipment to people of all ages in need. I work with shelters in my hometown of Annapolis, Maryland, and I work directly with those in need who contact me through my website or Facebook.
The funds I raise through this campaign will allow me to continue to ship items (such as clothing and shoes) to those in need at no cost to them. The average shipping cost for a family is between $30 - $40. I will also use the funds to purchase items requested, especially shoes, that are not in my current inventory. In addition, those in need often need undergarments for all members of their family, which I purchase new.
Finally, I am now expanding support to include school supplies and scholarships for children in the shelters that will allow them to join local sports teams such as soccer, baseball and lacrosse or activities such as taekwondo. I believe that by providing these scholarship, we can help the children feel more confident about themselves which will hopefully lead to better experiences in life. When children feel more confident, they are happier, have an easier time learning, and are better able to demonstrate their skills.
