Local organization receives a “helping hand” in return

A local organization known for meeting the needs of people in the Hutchinson County community received a helping hand in return in the form of turkeys.Four local men, Jimmy Anderson of Conoco Phillips, Mike Bethel of Ardent, Lanny Ferrell of WHM, and Scott Fowles donated 50 turkeys to High Plains Helping Hand for the holiday season. Anderson, Bethel, and Ferrell visited the organization Thursday to make the delivery.Carolyn Poindexter, who is with High Plains Helping Hand, said the organization was “absolutely” blessed to receive such a generous donation.She said High Plains Helping Hand didn’t have anything to give out to those in need around Thanksgiving, so the donation of the turkeys will help several in the community to have a merrier Christmas this year.“We’re blessed to be able to give these out,” she said.
