GALLIPOLIS — Gallia PALS worked in conjunction with two other PALS locations in food collection for local charities.
PALS chose to work with God’s Hands at Work (GHAW) with the food drive being between July 17 and 21. Gallia PALS held a community service day with GHAW, a local nonprofit organization covering five counties Gallia, Jackson, Meigs and Vinton Counties in Ohio as well as Mason County, W.Va. GHAW is operated solely from community donations which limits what is available on any given day.
GHAW has offered assistance to fire and flood victims, elders who have faced abuse, domestic violence survivors, those affected by homelessness and individuals who have been faced with job loss.
Gallia PALS looked into opportunities for volunteering with GHAW as far as assisting in cleaning and organizing donated inventory. Gallia Pals feel that GHAW is a “super group of people that reach out to help so many others.”
