Helping Hands is starting up more construction on their shelter on Main Street in Knoxville. Helping Hands represenative Chuck Galeazzi says that the summer heat made doing work on the un-air conditioned upstairs very difficult, but now that the temperatures have started cooling down, volunteers are able to get things moving along again. Galeazzi says that they are especially in need of someone to put baseboard down in the rooms upstairs, as well as funds to help provide for new windows. The shelter is located above the Helping Hand Food Pantry on the 100 block of E Main Street.
