Mamma’s Hands’ Denny and Leslie Hancock had the wonderful opportunity of addressing two assemblies of Skyline High School students at the Skyline Community Service Fair in November. They told of the beginnings of Mamma’s Hands, and encouraged students to find and follow their passion to help those in need.
Students visited our booth for more info and to sign up for the Phone Home program in January. We look forward to seeing you on the Bus!
Thank You Skyline Students & Staff for letting us participate in this worthwhile day!
