Disaster Helping Hand Ready To Grow

A Texoma grown non-profit organization is expanding.

Disaster Helping Hands has been helping people who suffer during natural disasters since 2006. The organization signed a lease on Thursday to buy 10 acres of land on Pencanway Drive in Wichita Falls. Disaster Helping Hands plans to build a permanent facility at the location. 

The non-profit has been collecting donations to help it reach this milestone. Executive Director Leon Green said, "I just want to say thanks to everyone who had the faith and trust in our organization. We will continue working in the same manner to get things done for people down the road."

Disaster Helping Hands first started helping people in 2006 after fire ravaged Ringgold. Since then the organization has helped residents after multiple fires and floods. Disaster Helping Hands has even hit the road to help people dealing with tornado damage in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.
