People Helping People volunteers staffed the Cornerstone Bank parking lots downtown today and raised a record-breaking $575 in donations. The weather was lovely and traffic plentiful. We thank everyone who paid $5 to park and help support this very worthy cause. And thank you, Cornerstone Bank, for allowing us this fundraising opportunity.
Cornerstone Bank has historically allowed various charities to man the parking lots on weekends; benefiting People Helping People and other charities on many occasions.
We are so delighted that the Eureka Springs Independent chose to run an article about our booth at Hobbies and Homestead! We not only have a new, larger location within the building, we've also steady been creeping up the ranking to #3 out of over 70 vendors. Come visit us at 2100 Van Buren and check out our fresh new look. Remember, each purchase helps provide much-needed prescriptions for Carroll County residents.
Merry Christmas from People Helping People! Please come and vote for our Christmas tree at the Crescent Hotel. The tree with the most votes wins a cash award from the Crescent Hotel. The money received goes to help Carroll Country residents in need of prescription assistance.
You can't miss our tree, we're the only one with flamingos! It definitely takes a flock to save lives.
It was a packed house last night at the Cathouse Lounge with Cocktails for a Cause benefiting People Helping People. Thanks to all who attended, and especially to the Cathouse staff who outdid themselves with hospitality, fabulous hors d'oeuvres and delightful drinks.

The annual Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser was a huge success, benefiting 3 local charities; People Helping People, Backpack Program and ECHO Village.
We are so grateful to the Holiday Island Presbyterians for once again choosing PHP as a beneficiary of their annual fundraiser. It takes the coordinated efforts of many, many folk to pull off such a spectacular event. Heartfelt thanks to all involved!
People Helping People is very pleased to have been chosen by the Holiday Island Presbyterian Church as one of three charities for their Annual Benefit Spaghetti Dinner. This is a fabulous, well-organized event with marvelous food and great desserts. Vegetarian options as well! Come early, the best desserts go fast!
One of our founding members, Susan Hopkins, spoke today about the People Helping People program at the Community of Christ Church in Berryville, Arkansas. We wanted to share the wonderful feedback Sue received from her presentation.
"Sue - thanks so much for joining us today! I think we had a very positive conversation that helped educate us on the value of your program. When I went out in the kitchen, a couple of our members were talking about how it seemed to be a good program, appropriate controls were in place to prevent abuse, etc. I think it’s also important to note that it’s a bridge for your clients, not an ongoing solution.
Again, thank you for coming. It says TONS when people are willing to come out and educate the community, both about the program itself, and about your personal passion for it."
Dale Hunter, Community of Christ Church
We love talking about People Helping People and spreading the word! To schedule a PHP presentation at your church or organization, please contact Susan Hopkins at 479.253.9381.
