In conjunction with the Hudson Community Service Association (HCSA), our members volunteer their time and talents with the HUDSON FOOD PANTRY and the HELPING HANDS program.
HUDSON FOOD PANTRY (HCSA): Housed at the Rejoice Lutheran Church, the Hudson Food Pantry serves needy families who reside in the Hudson City School District. Distribution is usually the fourth Saturday every month from 12 to-2:00 p.m. Dates for 2022 are 4/23, 5/21 (early due to Memorial Day), 6/25, 7/23, 8/27, 9/24, 10/22, 11/19 (early due to Thanksgiving) and 12/17 (early due to Christmas Eve). People can drop off non-perishable at a collection bin at Destination Hudson in Town Hall. The League for Service also donates Scholastic books to the pantry, which are distributed during the holiday season.
Due to Covid, the Winter Coat Collection is on hold. In the past, the Hudson League for Service was able to distribute over 200 adult winter coats to clients at the Hudson Food Pantry, housed at Rejoice Lutheran Church. Thanks to all the folks donating coats and especially to Martinizing Dry Cleaner of Hudson for donating the cleaning, storing and delivering to the coats to the distribution.
HELPING HANDS (HCSA): The Helping Hands program provides food, clothing, gasoline, and utilities to those with an immediate need. Other outreach is provided for back-to-school clothing, holiday giving tree and other services as needed.
The League also supports the annual community GIVING TREE to provide gifts for area families.
