St. Charbel Helping Hand Society provides a base from which the team and friends
of St. Charbel work together, hand in hand, to serve our community and bring healing
to each one of us.

The aim of the St. Charbel Helping Hand Society is to provide relief and succor to
those in need. It is the charitable arm of our parish community, through which many
less fortunate individuals and families from the Maronite community, and the community
at large benefit.

Among those who benefit from donations are the physically and mentally disadvantaged,
those without employment and the aged and infirm. Funds for education are also available
on request, if the financial situation of the petitioner requires such aid.

May the Good LORD and St. Charbel bless you.
