Helping Hands Benefit Rector Students

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT) One Region 8 community comes together to lend a helping hand.

Rector native Bill Carter has been linked to such groups as "The Rolling Stones."  He's always wanted to lend a helping hand to his hometown, and Tuesday night he did just that.

Guy Penrod, The Isaacs and "Daily and Vincent" took the stage at the Rector High School gym for the Helping Hands benefit concert.  The performance benefits disadvantaged Rector students.

Concert organizer Gregg Sain says Carter used his connections to make this night happen."He just saw that there were kids here with needs that were not being met, and this foundation fills in all those gaps that no one else does" said Sain.

All proceeds from tonight's concert will go towards scholarships, health Care, school supplies and clothing for Rector Children.The Helping Hands Foundation began in 2006. This was their second benefit concert.
