Helping Hands extends charity to American Legion World Series

Helping Hands Nursing Service, Inc teamed up with another local service to show how much it cares about charity. Teaming up with the Shelby Breakfast Rotary Club, Helping Hands once again hosted a team for the American Legion World Series, which played in Shelby from August 13-21, 2015.

American Legion Baseball has been a staple of communities across America, first established in 1925. Shelby, N.C. has the proud distinction of being the home of the American Legion World Series. During that week, baseball players, coaches, fans and American Legion members come to Shelby from all over the country.

Helping Hands Nursing Service recognizes how important this event is to the community, which prompted a response in the form of charity. That came in the form of free events for visiting American Legion teams, which ran this year in the middle of August.

For Helping Hands Nursing Service, charity is not a once a year event, but something that is a part of the elderly care services that are provided to Shelby residents. Charity does not always mean donating money, it can also mean going that extra step to help someone in need. Charity can be that little extra something special that puts a smile on someone’s face.

While Helping Hands Nursing Service is dedicated to providing top-quality nursing, home care and senior care, there is also a conscious effort to make the community a better place. While specializing in elderly care is part of the everyday service, there is an ongoing effort to give back.

The American Legion became an important part of American society when it was started in 1919. Proud veterans span the globe as the American Legion membership now stands at 2.4 million with 14,000 posts worldwide. Selecting Shelby to host its World Series is truly an honor.

Helping Hands Nursing Home is also honored to provide home care services for North Carolina residents who have served in the armed forces. That demographic is part of the overall clientele at Helping Hands Nursing Service. There is the utmost respect paid to these brave veterans who have represented our country so gallantly. The Helping Hands staff works to emulate its own top-notch service as the top home caregiver in all of North Carolina.

This August, charity went hand in hand as Helping Hands Nursing Service aimed above and beyond to treat the American Legion baseball players to world class service in Shelby, North Carolina.
