I showed up with my husband and a few of the members of our community organization (the North Miami Jaycees) to help some of our friends who volunteer monthly at Bridge to Hope. As a person who regularly organizes events, I was immediately struck by how organized the whole operation was despite the many and varied tasks to be accomplished in a short time. My group was immediately put to work and we did not stop for at least three hours. We had the opportunity to meet and talk with Pastors' Stone at the end and we all left feeling like we had done a really great thing. The November event included a full Thanksgiving feast, canned foods to take home, and even clothing. Despite being an hour's drive from our neighborhood, I suspect we will return (hopefully a couple of times) next year.

I've been a Bridge to Hope volunteer for three years now. I 've always been service-oriented and I was looking for a worthy activity for my kids as well. There are many deserving organizations, but we found a home at Bridge to Hope. Vanessa Tinsley runs the program with the greatest love and compassion, bringing together a diverse group of volunteers in serving an equally diverse group of families that really need and appreciate our help. For our family, volunteering for Bridge to Hope has been a life-enhancing experience and we are truly blessed in having the opportunity to serve others through this organization. For us, Bridge to Hope has truly become a family affair and we thank Vanessa for everything she does and for showing us what great love, compassion and sacrifice are about. Gretchen Ferrer and family.

I have known the directors of Bridge to Hope for close to 30 years now. You will not find more loving, caring, and honest people. They are truly committed to this ministry and to helping the poor with dignity and grace. We support them wholeheartedly and volunteer at their monthly outreaches. It's our way of saying thanks and atta boy/girl for all they do.

I am the volunteer photographer for Bridge to Hope's events. I just shot thier Thanksgiving Day Meal last Saturday and I really saw the difference this organization makes in the community. Over 500 individuals from all walks of life attended, were fed, and given canned goods and more to take home with them. I personally got to speak to a few of the subjects I photograged, and they do really appreciate Bridge To Hope's efforts with the community.

I have had the opportunity to volunteer to help this organization from time to time and have always found it's directors to be very giving, generous people who are dedicated to serving as many people as they can through this npo. They have often sacrificed themselves in numerous ways in order to continue to distribute food and basics to the many needy families that live in the Homestead area.Yhey are truly an inspiration and a blessing to many.

I have known the directors of this organization for 25 years and have assisted in their outreaches to those who are in need. Friends my wife and I have brought to the feedings have been deeply touched by Bridge to Hopes care for those who have little. It's been a honor serving with them.

I have cooked for Bridge to Hope for several years now at their monthly food distribution. I went one time just to help out my friend Vanessa and was immediately hooked. The small children and families who count on this service are wonderful. I have watched the need grow vastly in the past year and somehow Bridge to Hope keeps filling the need. It is an amazing group and I love working with them.
