News & Events

Frugal Meals

Frugal Meals is a great way to express our faith during the Lenten Season, reconnect with friends, and help the less fortunate.  The concept is simple.  Instead of spending money on an expensive meal at a restaurant, prepare a simple meal and invite some friends over to join you.  At the end of the evening, ask everyone to donate the money they would have spent on an expensive meal to Helping Hand of Hope.
