“Small Acts Of Kindness That Leave A Lasting Impact”

Helping Hands is an initiative started by the Civic Champs Foundation to mitigate challenges faced by elderly and high-risk members of the Bloomington community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Helping Hands has shifted its focus from  pharmacy pickups, to grocery pickups through the HungerTech initiative, and now to leaf management. 


The mission of Helping Hands is to connect Bloomington residents with one another and promote acts of kindness.
