Loving Hands Ministry (LHM) director, Leigh Ann Champion, board members, staff, and Chamber representatives celebrated their new location by holding a DC Chamber Ribbon Cutting on December 13th. Loving Hands Ministry is a second-hand thrift shop and donation center. They are now located at 6461 Church Street in Douglasville.
Loving Hands Ministry was founded in 1997 by Jerre O’Neal, Gary McManus, Jimmy Haddle and Leon Frost. They saw a need for people in crisis to have a place to go for help with clothing and household needs. Loving Hands serves people in situations including those who are housed in a shelter, homeless people, individuals leaving jail or prison, senior adults, victims of a fire or flood as well as some other situations. LHM also operates a second chance store open to the public. They accept donations of clothing and household goods that are clean and usable. They cannot take large pieces of furniture, mattresses, televisions or computers . LHM also offers free bread and sweets on most days that are donated by local grocery stores.
Chamber President and CEO, Sara Ray, congratulated Leigh Ann, “we are proud to have your organization in Douglas County and as a Chamber member. We appreciate all that you do to serve the community, and we look forward to supporting and promoting Loving Hands Ministry for many years to come.”
