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.

Where do I start... I met Vanessa in December of 2015. I was driving by Naranja Park Baptist Church on my way to get my cafe con leche the 3rd Saturday of the month. I was curious so on my way back home I pulled over and asked what was going on. It was explained to me and than asked to be guided to the 1 in charge. Vanessa and I hit it off before anything was said and before giving her my name I asked? " Where do you need me?" It's been 6 months down our journey and we continue to do what we do best. Bridge2Hope is an organization serving the Naranja and Homestead Area for about 20 years now. Vanessa and her husband Mark wholeheartedly serve their community always looking for a way to alleviate the neighbors challenges. She has mastered the art of making a lot out of so little and facing the challenges that come with a non profit but constantly grateful for the ample amount of volunteers and organizations like FarmShare, the USDA, Books and Books to name a few continued support. I look forward to serving aside to her and grateful of being associated with an amazing kindred spirit. We look forward to the future and our purpose when it comes to serving our community.

I chose Bridge to Hope from a list to complete service hours for my middle school son, we have been volunteering at Bridge to Hope now for five years. The boys receive their volunteer hours but it is so much more meaningful to them than the service hours. They enjoy helping others, it gives them a chance to see how little things change lives and how much showing others respect and kindness matters.

My wife and I have volunteered many times over the past couple of years. The name is so appropriate since you see people come to get food that have "no hope" in their eyes. They are so beat down with the concerns of life. Seeing them get fed and take food home is very uplifting for them and us. Jerry & Kathy

BTH is an organization that makes you feel good about giving, expecting nothing in return,but receiving the joy and fulfillment of giving to those that have the least. Love to Give. Carmen

One never knows when it will be their turn in need, Bridge to Hope is that organization to keep you from falling off that cliff. What a wonderful way to give back and help build that "just in case" potentially for your neighbors. This is how we both community and hope by providing not only the goods needed but spending our time putting it together. The world needs more bridges to hope.
