Frisco Helpers - Lending a Helping Hand and Sharing Resources!
Even during this difficult time of COVID, the Frisco Helpers (FH) Ministry continued to provide household repair, maintenance, and safety services to the seniors and special-needs residents of Frisco.  They placed a heavy focus on safety aids—grab bars in bath areas to provide support for those who are at risk for falling, installation of toilet safety frames and wheelchair ramps, and off-set door hinges to provide a safer and a more accessible environment. 

Frisco Helpers' services are free.  Clients may give a donation to help cover the cost of purchases made on their behalf.  Again, the residents of Frisco were overly generous in providing donations over and above the cost of materials.   This generosity allows FH to be self-funding and make periodic donations to various non-profits approved by its volunteers.  So, on October 26th Frisco Helpers donated $2,500 to the Collin County Meals-on-Wheels Program, $2,500 to Frisco Family Services (Senior Support), and $1,000 each to the mission funds of their sponsoring churches—First Frisco UMC and Grace Avenue UMC.
