Help House begins school supplies collections; donations welcomed

By Raylene Quaney

Help House is again collecting school supplies to be distributed among the elementary schools in Osage County that do not supply their student body, just as we did last year.

Drop off donations that have been purchased anytime during regular business hours, or make secure cash donations on our website at and designate it is for school supplies, or mail to Help House at PO Box 356, Lyndon, KS 66451.

Home schools that could use supplies for students are asked to contact Scott Perkins for other arrangements.

Fan club

Clients can now sign up to receive a free box fan for the summer. Check in at the desk for details on the fan program.


Have you been thinking of volunteering? Help House could use volunteers 4-7 p.m. Monday evenings and also 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Fridays. Anyone able to volunteer one or two days a month, that is fine also. Stop by anytime and fill out a volunteer application and visit with Scott Perkins or Raylene Quaney, and they will be happy to visit with you about the different areas of service, such as the pantry, sorting, reception, and receiving. Come join the Help House family. We believe you will find your service to God and others will be very rewarding and fun.

Support from local churches welcomed

Do you know if your church is a supporting member of the Help House ministry? Help House was founded by several churches in Osage County and others who have come alongside since the ministry began in 2003. We invite all churches in Osage County to join in for the purpose of providing emergency assistance for the basic needs of individuals and families in our county. Providing our hearts and hands to help in an unconditional, compassionate, and non-judgmental way.

Help House is supported by contributions, donations, grants, and volunteers. Without our wonderful and faithful staff of volunteers, we could not keep our doors open. So, we invite you and your church family to come join us. It is a ministry that not only blesses those we serve but those of us who are there to be of service.
