(Farmington) SMMHC Helping Hands is an organization that assists the Southeast Missouri Mental Health Center in Farmington in providing items for its patients that the state budget does not account for. Heath Center Human Resources Director Rick Koppeis says the pandemic forced the organization to cancel their usual fundraisers over the last year. They will host a barbecue Saturday on the parking lot of the Farmington Methodist Church on the south side of Karsch Boulevard.

The barbecue will go from 10 until 3 Saturday at the Methodist Church in Farmington. Southeast Missouri Mental Health Center cares for about 350 patients at a time.
