My name is William Collins. I have been a volunteer of Praise Unlimited for over 5 years. It is truly a blessing to help this organization distribute valuable goods to the community. The clients are so grateful. This organization would not have existed without the help of Feed the Children. They aways provide items not only for children but for their families as well. Items like school supplies, snacks, etc are always needed in our community. Thanks so much Feed The Children. Pleae keep donating to our community. William

I serve with an organization that was able to receive a couple of truck loads from FTC. It never ceases to amaze me the need in our area. We never have any left over on the scheduled days we distribute. Without organizations like FTC that provide quality supplies (especially food) many in our area would go without.

Feed The Children continuously provide us with our annual Christmas party gift to all our children for the past 7 years. Dios International holds an annual Christmas community party where free food, free games, free picture with santa and free Christmas gift is given to everyone. Feed the children provides us all our gifts, many times those gifts are already wrapped by different age groups and gender. Feed the children is an exceptional non-profit organization, they are going above and beyond to help children of all ages. Thank you for the continuous support.

I have worked with FTC for over five years serving the East Tennessee area. They have made a tremendous impact in our area. I have seen first hand how lives are changed by reaching out to those in need. THANK YOU! Keep up the good work.

Resurrection Life Church has worked with Feed the Children for fifteen years and we have had many excellent experiences with this fine organization. If I had to pick one special event which they made possible, it would have to be what occurred after the Oklahoma City bombing.

Our church worked closely with all the affected families for many months and still maintain contact with a number of them.

Many families lost their children on that terrible day. The devestating effects of that tragedy ripped a huge hole in the hearts and souls of the families, to a point where most of them could not be around children because of their painful memories.

We decided that with your help, we would sponsor a special Christmas event for the poor children in the neighborhood. Along with the staff at Feed the Children, we decided to pass out food and presents to the children and invited the families who lost children in the bombing to come to the event for an evening of healing. Almost all the family members showed up, but with understandably guarded emotions.

We placed all the gifts along one wall seperated by age and gender. Then we placed long tables in front of the presents with an army of volunteers behind the tables and placed chairs in front of the tables where we had the family members sit and wait for the doors to open with the excited kids.

The Lord was present that evening as the children sat on the laps of the family members. After hugs and kisses were given as thank yous for the beautiful presents Feed the Children had donated, the family members allowed themselves to feel joy (many for the first time since April 19th.) So not only were hundreds of children blessed due to the generosity of Feed the Children, but many greiving victims were also.

This is just one of hundreds of stories we have about our experience with Feed the Children and the wonderful people who run the show in Oklahoma City and around the country.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Many ways over the past 15 years.

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

Get the word out to the public about what a generous organization they are.

My name is Mike Lynch, Pastor with Blood-N- Fire Ministries and I want to say thank you so very much to Feed the Children ,they have been a great partnering agency with us to feed the inner city and the rural areas in the Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, and California. We have also, with their help loaded several containers going to the earthquake victims in Haiti . When major catastrophes take place, FTC has always stood behind us and helped us in any way they can from hurricanes to the flooding, its just amazing to be able to work with a good partner in helping us help the poor and the needy.

I have personally experienced the result of this organization last fall when they sent in seven semi-loads of food and cleaning supplies to be given away in Minneapolis. It was absolutely amazing

I believe FTC is doing everything right in their organization, I wouldn't even know where to start to say to make changes. I believe they're doing a great job.

I have had the opportunity to help distribute food at several Feed The Children distributions. They work with local agencies to ensure that the people who receive help are truly in need.

The drivers, the coordinators and everyone representing the organization are first class and they are committed to the work they do.

This organization is well worthy of everyone's support.

This is an amazing organization that came to our community at a time of absolute devastation for so many families. Their mission of making sure no one...especially children...goes hungry is carried out with genuine compassion and love.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very diverse. Many students, bikers, and professionals. All amazing people with a true dedication to this organization. Many of the bikers came from hours away to support FEED THE CHILDREN.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
