executive director update
God's Hygiene Help Center is seeking 2 board members to serve with us! We are asking people with a heart for "providing dignity and hope through hygiene to those in need with the compassion of Jesus" to consider joining our board. Our Board Chairman Tim Robison has resigned due to his health. Robin Lorms has graciously accepted the interim position of Board Chairman through September 2021.
God is opening the flood gates and providing GHHC with a path for enormous growth and opportunity! We are developing partnerships with many local organizations to reach more people in need with hygiene, personal care and cleaning products. The need in Columbus is enormous as the COVID pandemic has affected the low-income communities in a huge way. Please pray for God's guidance as we grow and partner with these organizations. We pray for blessings to increase our donations and volunteers so that we can move forward with all that God is calling us to do.
We are seeking volunteers who want to serve with us!!
We are growing and need your help! If you are able to give a couple of hours a week or month, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Elizabeth Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to recognize our outstanding Operations Manager, Lesley Tate. Lesley has done a phenomenal job in managing the warehouse, help center and ordering and distributing all of the products given out at our hygiene help centers. She manages the ordering and distribution processes and guides our wonderful volunteers to help to make our help center run efficiently and smoothly.
GHHC has an open position: Resources Manager
This position works with our Operations Manager to coordinate the ordering and purchasing of our hygiene and cleaning products as well as products for our other projects. We are looking for someone who will identify product sources and manage the ordering of the products we provide.
GHHC Hygiene Help Centers at the Douglas and Far East Community Centers are reopening as the community centers once again open to serving their communities. We are restocking the hygiene help centers with hygiene, personal care and cleaning products. The community center managers are wonderful men who want to help give their families dignity and hope. They are great partners with us in serving!

purses of love
Teresa Lauderdale contacted God's Hygiene Help Center because she learned that we give out purses packed with hygiene items. Tammy had referred Virginia to Choices and Teresa is her caseworker! She has been doing outreaches for nine years and planning one for women on the streets. Our GHHC volunteers were so glad to meet and help Teresa by giving her all 18 Purses of Love we had available.
Pastor Teresa Lauderdale shared "Fruit of the Spirit Ministries' outreach is unlike any other ministry as we go out into the community to provide a helping hand to people who need it most. I cannot tell you how many times I have been surprised, even to tears, by the love and support that comes from the community, but the help we received from GHHC was provided in an astonishing manner. They took their time to consider the needs of every woman and their desire to feel like a woman despite the hard times they are experiencing. GHHC provided Purses of Love and hygiene items for our ministry's outreach. Their donation enabled us to provide a purse filled with hygiene to women who are in need. Their faces showed great gratitude as many of them were filled with tears as they received their Purses of Love. Thank you GHHC for your donation and partnership with Fruit of The Spirit Ministries."
Teresa is not only the Founder, she is also a licensed and ordained Pastor of Fruit of the Spirit Ministries and has these other credentials: Masters of Arts Degree in Alcohol Drug Counseling, Bachelors in Business Administration, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, Supportive Housing and Peer Support Specialist Supervisor for National Church Residences.
On the ministry website it states Evangelism/Outreach Team - Our Evangelism/Outreach Team carries the Good News of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the streets and homeless shelters. They aim to reach those who have fallen on hard times and those who are less likely to come to the church building. They operate a food pantry during select hours. They are dedicated to the words:
He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Mark 16:15 and
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Attention to our women supporters, as you clean out your closets, we will gladly accept your donation of discarded purses. Just contact Terry Starr at email@example.com to arrange drop off or pick up.

Pam Johnston, Director, RESET INC. shares their mission on their website: Resetting today's youth with hope and trust in Jesus! Introduce a Biblical-based curriculum for public school students at the elementary, middle and high school levels in Franklin and Delaware counties of Ohio. Change the culture in the public schools in order to build trust in the community, impact student character and develop students' moral compass. Restore Biblical truth and instill hope for the children who are our future. Implement a pilot program of RESET in at least one school by the Fall of 2018.
Thank you to Stephanie Jackson who brought in kind donations to our Help Center on Tuesday. Tammy has worked with Stephanie for several years in the Linden community. We then learned about RESET, Inc. With parent permission they can take students out of school to educate them about the Bible. RESET works with students at Como, East Linden, Linden K-6 STEM, and Linden McKinley STEM 7-12.
