There will be a Parks and Recreation Committee meeting of the DeKalb County Commission on Thursday January 25, 2018 at 5:15 p.m. in the lower courtroom of the DeKalb County courthouse.
His Love Help Center has been providing free clothes, shoes, medical items and etc. for over three years to people in our community. Everyone that helps out there are all volunteers. The community has showed great support by donating clothing household items and small cash donations, but at this time it needs financial help to be able to continue. A great number of families has been blessed by this Help Center. They serve all walks of life, such as single parents, the elderly, fire victims, and more. At the current location (1100 S. College St.) the Help Center has to pay rent, phone, water, gas and electric. So far the utilities are being kept up with by small cash donations and the sale of the household items, but the rent has been falling behind. At this time the Help Center does not have any financial backing from an outside person, a church or business. In order to stay open and to continue serving our community it needs your help. If you feel you are able to provide financial help, have a building they can use or a one time donation please stop by the help center or call 615-597-(love)5683
