Helping Hands is a volunteer, community service program for all high school boys & girls that live in North Andover.  The focus of Helping Hands is on cancer awareness and fundraising - particularly for pediatric cancer. We meet one night a week to plan and carry out a variety of projects and fundraisers in the North Andover and Greater Lawrence community. High schoolers can apply for Helping Hands in September at the Youth Center! All Helping Hands members must become members of the Youth Center. See below for details of last year's Helping Hands' activities.

Helping Hands participates in the Merrimack Valley Relay for Life every spring! We have an ambitious goal of $8,000 per year for the American Cancer Society, and the girls work hard to fundraise individually and as a group to meet this goal. Thanks to fundraising from this group under many years of leadership from Michelle Grasso, Molly Malandrino and Micaela Tetrault, the group was inducted into the Relay for Life Hall of Fame!

Helping Hands 2017-18

This year's Helping Hands team is ready to exceed their fundraising goal for Relay for Life! They have started the year off by selling cancer ribbons at the school lunches, holding a car wash,and they have many more plans in the works! All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society! Thank you to everyone who has supported Helping Hands' mission!
