On Friday December 21, 2012 The board members of Hand To Hand Community Service's will be visiting Neighbour 2 Neighbour Centre in Hamilton, located at Athens St, to donate over 1000 dollars worth of breakfast cereal, pasta and tomato sauce, in an effort to help stock their foodbank's shelves this holiday season.

WireService.ca Press Release - Dec 19, 2012 - For the last 25 years, Neighbour 2 Neighbour Centre has provided emergency food to families who have exhausted their resources, living in Hamilton Mountain and the surrounding areas; on average they help over 1,000 families a month. Neighbour 2 Neighbour also provides other services such as violence against women counselling, tutoring for young students, hampers and kits to empower single and new parents, as well as resource counselling to local area residents, all in an effort to lead the way in poverty prevention in their community.

When asked about Hand To Hand Community's interest in the shelter, Program Director Daniela Siggia answered, "I liked that Neighbour 2 Neighbour's vision goes beyond coping with poverty. Studies show that education is often a powerful force in breaking and transcending the poverty cycle, Hand To Hand Community services actively seeks out and supports innovative programs that support transcendence, programs like Neighbor to Neighbor's tutoring services. At Hand To Hand we focus on anything that will support learning. On Friday we're bringing food, but we hope to establish a relationship with both Neighbour 2 Neighbour, and local area businesses, that will enable us to provide more substantial, and long term support to those in need."

About Hand to Hand

Hand To Hand Community Services is a new charity in Southwestern Ontario directed towards providing immediate relief to people in need, and improving the standard of living in the global community. Hand To Hand Community Services receives stable funding from Triple R Recycling, an environmental waste diversion service that helps keep landfills from receiving an estimated 900,000 tons of recyclable textile waste a year. Triple R Recycling does this through their many clothing recycling bins across the province of Ontario. The clothes that are collected are not sold to thrift stores. Instead, donations are sorted and shipped to countries around the world, that lack in affordable clothing. Hand To Hand focuses on redirecting those donations back to the local communities where businesses & property managers offer their support, by permitting clothing bins to be placed on their properties' at no cost.
