Members of the Helping Hands community service club at Oxford Area High School recently participated in the 10th annual Earth Day spring cleanup in Downtown Oxford in conjunction with Oxford Mainstreet, Inc. Helping Hands participates in the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service and Make a Difference Day, and has raised funds for the Make a Wish Foundation, Heifer International, the American Red Cross and the Chester County Crop Walk. Helping Hands contributes to the community in various other ways, including babysitting, visiting the elderly, planting flowers and assisting in the annual Oxford Mainstreet Inc. Easter egg hunt.
