Christmas in July

Beginning this week through July 28, Help House is having A Christmas In July. Holiday decorations and various other items that need to be cleared out of storage to make room for donations to the Christmas Store, have been unpacked and are available to those wanting to get an early start on their shopping, or just to think about Christmas and being cool.

School supplies collection

Help House is again collecting school supplies to be distributed among the various elementary schools in Osage County that do not provide needed supplies for their students as we did last year. Help House only collects items listed on the school websites for grades kindergarten through fifth grade. A list of items needed can be found at or on the Help House Facebook page. Drop off donations that have been purchased any time during regular business hours, or make secure cash donations on Help House’s website and designate it for school supplies, or mail to Help House, PO Box 356, Lyndon, KS 66451. Home schools that could use supplies for students should contact Scott Perkins for other arrangements.


Have you been thinking of volunteering? Help House could use volunteers on 4-7 pm Monday evenings, and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Fridays. Stop by anytime and fill out a volunteer application and visit with Scott Perkins or Raylene Quaney about the different areas of service, such as the pantry, sorting, reception, receiving or other tasks.

“Come join the Help House Family. We believe you will find your service to God and others will be rewarding and fun.”
