Helping Hands Ministry welcomes Brittany Duncan as its newest staff member. As Director of Community Ministries, Duncan oversees the daily operations of the organization and supervises volunteers in the food pantry, clothing area, and front office.
Brittany grew up in Magnolia and is a 2012 graduate of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, where she studied journalism and church history. She brings skills and experience in project management and graphic design, as well as a demonstrated faith commitment, all of which contribute positively to the environment at Helping Hands Ministry.
Executive Director Rucker Preston is pleased with the gifts and abilities Duncan brings to Helping Hands. “Brittany is a great addition to Helping Hands Ministry,” Preston said. “In just a few weeks, she has gained a great deal of respect from the volunteers and those who come for services. She has proven to be well organized, hardworking, and very dedicated to serving our community because of her faith.”
Duncan indicated that she is pleased to be making the transition from the business world to the nonprofit sector. “Helping Hands Ministry has welcomed me, as it has so many others, with open arms and has truly made me feel part of this team,” said Duncan. “I am excited to be able to use my skills and experience to serve the community through this incredible organization.”
The mission of Helping Hands Ministry is to cultivate an environment in which individuals and families in the Belton and Academy school districts are empowered to work out of systemic poverty and toward wholeness, through ministries of relief, development, and advocacy.
