Hannah's Treasure Chest is a great organization to not only donate your gently used children's items to, but their volunteers are some of the most friendly around. They are always willing to help unload donations and offer to take you on a tour where they show you the depths of how they do what they do to help the kids in the community. Keep up the GREAT work!!

HTC provides a great service for children in need by giving them care packages of clothes, toys, books, and baby equipment. We even provide cribs. You can work as many days and hours as you like, a very flexible schedule. I work with a friendly and caring group of people.

Hannah's Treasure Chest is a fantastic nonprofit the helps children from newborn to 18 years of age with everything from clothes, toys, equipment, books,etc. All volunteers are very dedicated and a pleasure to work with. I really like that the volunteers are not committed to a specific time but can help when it is convenient to do so.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing at this time. Everything is very organized which makes it easy to fill a child's order and know where to find what is needed.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

After 42 years in public education, I wanted to find a place to volunteer that was very organized, would allow for a flexible schedule, and would in some way help children. I could not have found a better place than Hannah's . I spend each day knowing I have helped many families that for whatever reason have found themselves in need of clothing, bedding, toys, books, high chairs, and so much more for their children. I also meet the wonderful people that donate their gently used items. Without them we would've exist.

I have donated many items to this great place in the last 3 years & I have participated in the sales they have. The volunteers who have the sales are really nice & great caring people.They take the time to do such a great service for all the needy children. I would recommend donating to this place whenever it is possible. Their sale prices are great & the items. I no longer live in Centerville but I will always remember sharing time with this place & the people.

Hannah's Treasure Chest is an outstanding benefit to our community. Their work to enrich the lives of youth and families in the region is multi-faceted and impactful. Through their numerous drives and fund raising events, they bring unique opportunities for other businesses and organizations to get involved and contribute to their mission. I appreciate the services they provide and will continue to do what I can to contribute to HTC.

After being in education for over 35 years, I found a perfect place to volunteer. Hannah's Treasure Chest has let me continue meeting the needs of children by providing clothes, books, toys, coats, hats, school supplies and dental needs to thousands of needy children. It is so exciting to fill an order and be able to help a child in need. The social workers who pick up the orders are so impressed with what we do for their clients! It is a wonderful place to volunteer and work with such caring people who all love helping children!

Having been a preschool teacher for 27 yrs., I felt volunteering at Hannah's Treasure Chest, when I retired, would fit with my love of children. What a blessing it has turned out to be, not only for all of the children it serves, but also for those of us who enjoy going in to the facility to fill orders and help provide their basic needs. These volunteers will step up to accommodate requests that come to us from the agencies we work with, often going out of their way to find what is requested. A Barbie doll,
believe it or not, dressed in a "Sponge Bob" T shirt, for a girl who had requested a Barbie doll or something "Sponge Bob", was one of our memorable fulfillments. Everyday there is a lesson in
remembering to be grateful, and to help do something for those less fortunate.

As a volunteer at Hannah's Treasure Chest, I find great satisfaction in the mission of this charity.
Helping children in need, helps fulfill my lifetime goals as a mother, scout leader, Sunday school
teacher and preschool teacher. It is an extension of my desire to do all things that benefit children,
and does it so well that I am proud to be helping to expand their mission. It is an awesome place
to work !

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to keep the funding coming so that we could help more children.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

This charity is my volunteer place of choice. As a former pre-school teacher (27 yrs.) Hannah's gives
me a meaningful place to put my efforts to truly help children in need in the community in which I live.
It truly enriches the lives of the children it serves and provides equipment, clothing, toys and books for
clients of welfare agencies who recommend families for us to serve. A large group of volunteers, headed
by only three paid staff, helped 7000 children in 2012. j These people sort, clean and repair clothing and equipment which is donated by the local residents, so that needy families do not have to go without the
basic needs for their children from birth through High School
This is an outstanding charity as proven by the kudos that it has received from businesses and agencies in the Dayton community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help us afford a larger facility.

I have been involved with Hannah's Treasure Chest for over 10 years. It has been exciting to see how it has grown. I was a volunteer and now give back in other ways like telling people about this great group helping the needy children in the area. Each time we moved to a larger space, Hannah's filled it. They have great group of volunteers and support from the community around. Nothing ever goes to waste. If they can't use it, they find some one who can use it either a church band, another non-profit or garage sale (where the money goes for the things they really need like diapers, socks and underwear.) Helping at Hannah's was a life changing experience that I would recommend everyone volunteer...high school to grandma's.
