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.

Cocktails for A Cause, Dec 13th
Please join us for a special "Cocktails For A Cause" at Rogues Manor in Eureka Springs on December 13th from 5 - 7 pm. This is a fundraiser for People Helping People sponsored by Main Street Eureka Springs. There will be a raffle, some great surprises and Rogue's beautiful setting.
This event is a perfect way to connect with locals, make new contacts, or simply enjoy a cocktail with friends. $10 to join the fun with proceeds benefiting both causes, plus a percentage of the bar tab.
Mark your calendars, join us and support People Helping People!
People Helping People spent over $18,000 last year buying prescription medications for Carroll County residents who could not afford these crucial scripts themselves. The need is greater than ever. We hope to see you at Rogue's for a delightful evening; we gladly accept donations online if you are not able to attend.
Rogue's Manor is located at 124 Spring Street in Historic Downtown Eureka Springs, AR.
Carroll County Foundation Grant
Wonderful note from Janell Robertson of the Carroll County Community Foundation:
"We are happy to say that People Helping People will be receiving one of the Giving Tree Grants in the amount of $3,000 for the purchase of medicine. Congratulations!
These grant checks will be awarded to our grantees on Thursday, October 11 at 9:00 am at the Carroll County Country Club meeting room, right by the golf course, between Berryville and Eureka Springs. Coffee, tea, and snacks will be provided. When presented your grant check, you will be asked to give a brief explanation of how your grant will be used to support the people of Carroll County.
Grants for our Fall Giving Tree come from our Carroll County Giving Tree Endowment. This endowment is made up of small and large tax-deductible contributions (cash, check, stock, insurance, property, IRAs) from people all over Carroll County and Arkansas. This is a perfect testament to the power of an endowment. Donors give their tax-deductible donations, those donations are invested and grow and give back every year. The donor’s dollar continues working in and for the county, giving back to a variety of nonprofits – those that focus on critical care as well the arts and education. This endowment has given back over $276,000 into our community since its inception! And, that is just one of our 36 endowments and funds."
Wow! What a fantastic organization; People Helping People is delighted to be a recipient of 2018 Giving Tree Grant! Please join us for the grant award if you can; 9 am Thursday, October 11 at the Carroll County Country Club in Berryville, Arkansas.
