  • Helping Hands, Click here

    Helping Hands is a service committee that offers assistance to Country Day families who are affected by some form of challenge and may need our support.  Depending upon the needs of the family, the committee members are available to prepare meals, run errands, make hospital visits, walk the dog, send a card, help with carpool, donate blood, offer prayers, etc. 
    The committee members are sensitive to privacy needs and all assistance and matters concerning the family will remain confidential.  The Helping Hands Committee will never approach any potential family in need.  It is the policy of the committee to act only if contacted directly by the family and that family specifically requests the committee’s assistance. Additionally, in an effort to maintain maximum privacy, the Helping Hands Committee will not use e-mail to communicate about any family unless the family gives permission to do so. Please contact Serena Vaughan at 504-352-9582.
