A Sweet Success

Sweets for the Sweet Fundraiser

Thank you to everyone who helped make our 2018 Sweets for the Sweet Fundraiser such a success! Thanks to your support, we were able to raise $27,000 to help provide our working uninsured neighbors with vital medical and dental services.

FUN FACTS: We had more than 70 volunteers helping us this year, and 40 of those were cupcake delivery drivers! Our celebrity drivers included WCYB news anchors David Boyd, Dave Dierks, Casey Goetz, P.J. Johnson, Julie Newman and Rebeca Pepin! Special thanks again to Blackbird Bakery for donating the cupcakes!

Thank You to Local Churches!

Every year, local churches support Healing Hands with donations of time and money to help us further our mission. As a Christian ministry that was formed by church members more than 20 years ago, we are grateful for your continued generous support!

We would love the opportunity to speak to your church membership or groups about the work we do at Healing Hands. If interested, contact us at or call us at (423) 573-4327.
