Hannah's Treasure Chest enriches the lives of children in need by creating care packages of their basic needs, such as clothes, shoes, books, toys, and equipment such as strollers. This has got to be one of the best organizations because of the family environment they have created with their staff and employees. When they meet the staff from other organizations, their treated like family as well. They feel comfortable sharing as much as they can to let the volunteers and staff know the impact they're making on the lives of the children.
I am continually amazed at the dedication of the volunteers, many of whom devote hundreds of hours each year. These volunteers efforts are essential to Hannah's for maximizing its limited resources. I especially admire the striving for incremental operational improvements that ultimately translates into improving the lives of children helped by Hannah's.
I toured the facility to learn what Hannah's Treasure Chest actually does. They ladies there walked me through each step of the process from receiving donations, cleaning items, sorting them into the warehouse, and then choosing the right clothes, books, toys and other basic needs for each child. It is easy to see how much the volunteers care about making sure each child not only has needs met, but has fun with the the items they receive. Their passion for making kids safe, happy and healthy is what really makes this operation truly a success.
A friend and I recently visited Hannah's Treasure Chest. We were very impressed! Their volunteers were very knowledgeable and gave us a tour of their facility. It was extremely organized and clean. It was clear that they were dedicated to helping as many children and families as they possibly could. When we left we were inspired to start collecting items to donate and have since dropped off several bags. Also, we decided to make them a top priority by spreading the word about them to our church women's group. The need is great and keeps growing. This organization is a positive example of people truly making a difference.
I've been an occasional volunteer with HTC for many years, and love to see the dedication of others who are there working to make lives better for children who need assistance with clothing, shoes, bedding, etc.
I'm also a volunteer coordinator for a local company who sends groups of volunteers to local non-profits; many of our employees will specifically ask that we coordinate volunteer days for HTC. Everyone always says they have a rewarding volunteer day at HTC, helping to improve the lives of local children!
I have been volunteering at Hannah's for seven years and have met a wonderful and dedicated group of volunteers. Love the flexibility of hours. Come in when you can! Just a great organization led by a director who truly appreciates all the work that we do.
Thank you so much for providing a Boppy pillow for a Help Me Grow heart operation child, so he can work on his gross motor skills!
A co-worker was able to pick it up for me, that is a wonderful service, too.
Very impressed with the dedication and direction of Hannah's Treasure Chest. They provide a rare combination of a strong sense of mission along with operational excellence. Dedicated volunteers help execute the game plan of the leadership team in providing support and love for Dayton area kids.
HTC is an extremely valuable resource for our organization. it is good to know there's additional support close by with almost anything we need to help assist our parents. Above and beyond the items provided are the staff and volunteers. They are amazing people with wonderful hearts for serving the under-resourced population. They are very careful to provide only items that they themselves would appreciate having and they make agencies like ours feel very comfortable in the request, pick up and process. We love and appreciate Hannah's!
Hannah's is such a great charity and filling a huge need in the community! I really like how they take used (unexpired) car seats to donate to families in need. All kids need to be transported safely and a safe car seat is so expensive.
