My eight year old daughter and I volunteered through Little Helping Hands in Austin, Texas for the first time this weekend. What a rewarding experience! My daughter met some great kids and really enjoyed packaging baby formula for children in need. The volunteer coordinators are so organized and made everyone feel comfortable and welcome in the group. We plan to do many more community service projects through Little Helping Hands in the future!

The Great!

We are new to this organization but met many volunteers who have followed them throughout the city to help local charities. We look forward to participating again!

This is a most wonderful organization! It's one-stop-shopping for finding great volunteering opportunities that you can do with your children... which are often very difficult to find. Our entire family always leaves an activity feeling better for having helped out our community.

I have been a volunteer, along with my 6-year old son, with Little Helping Hands for one year. In a nutshell, Little Helping Hands coordinates and matches up families to volunteer activities in the Austin community that are age-appropriate for children.

What’s so great about this
organization is that is instills in children at a very young age the importance of helping others and giving back to our communities. Currently, the organization coordinates about 20 activities a month, but the demand from parents is so great that the schedule for the next month (once posted) usually fills up within 12-24 hours, leaving many parents and children without an opportunity to participate. Additional funding would help support so many more volunteer activities (and help our community even more)!

I feel very passionately about this organization and highly recommend it to any parent who cares about the community and our environment, and to the children of those parents, who will hopefully grow up to follow in their footsteps with the same values!

My son is always excited to participate in community activities organized through LHH. In the past year, he and I (along with hundreds of other families) have participated in volunteer activities at Goodwill Greenworks, Caritas of Austin, Micah 6 Food Pantry, Elderhaven, Zilker Botanical Gardens, and Refugee Services of Austin, among many others.

Add more volunteer activities for families each month, but that would only be possible with more funding!

Our family is very grateful to have found LHH. We have been doing volunteer events with them for a year now and my children have learned so many valuable lessons about giving back and about how lucky they are. We have also learned a lot about our city as the events are in a different place each time. I had really missed volunteering like I had before I had kids. It was hard to take the time from them to get out to volunteer. LHH has allowed us all to volunteer together which is even more fulfilling than the volunteering I was doing alone.

It is very important to me to teach my children the importance of giving back to the community & helping others. Little Helping Hands has helped me communicate this message to my son. He is only three and we can already participate in volunteer activities together because of LHH! LHH makes giving back fun for the kids. It is really filling a huge need in our community.

My family has participated in many volunteer oppportunities with Little Helping Hands. Without this organization, finding places for our children to volunteer would be difficult to do. I love that we are able to choose to from a variety of volunteer activities among many different non profits. This gives our kids a big exposure to all the different needs out there. The staff at LHH are all wonderful and are good with the kids. The organization from when you sign up, to all the reminder/informative emails, to when you arrive at the event and when you leave is outstanding. I would and have recommended this to others.

My seven year old son loves LHH! He can't wait to sign up each month, and learn about the activity we're doing, and most importantly how we are helping. As his parents, we are thrilled with the service LHH provides by organizing community activities that teach us all how important and how much fun giving back is. We would never be able to expose our son to the same level of service as we can through LHH.

Little Helping Hands is extremely well-organized and understands the interests, abilities, and needs of children and families. My 6-year-old son and I have learned a great deal about local non-profits that are improving our community, and we have been able to join in that effort. It is very rewarding. My son's favorite activity is taking apart computers for recycling. It helps him learn about computers and increase his manual dexterity. There is a huge variety of activities to choose from.

As parents, we talk to our child about being a good citizen and how to develop qualities to be one. Volunteering together with our 6 year old in different Little Helping Hands activity helps us put some of those words into practice and is kind of a family bonding opportunity. All the Little Helping Hands activities we have volunteered for in the past 9 months have been so much fun and my daughter has learnt so much from them that when we tell her we have a volunteering opportunity on that weekend, her response is "Yaaay.. Come mama lets go." Even eating breakfast is optional :). We are much indebted to Little Helping Hands for organizing so many varied activities in such a wonderful manner. Volunteering for a noble cause by itself is good motivating factor to get out and do something - but when it is also so much fun, it just becomes an addiction, I guess :).

get more volunteering opportunities for children within Austin and expand to areas adjoining Austin city.

Little Helping Hands does an amazing job at meeting a need in the community. Like most parents, I found it very difficult to find opportunities to volunteer with my small children. There was very little to do beyond delivering meals and visiting nursing homes. Little Helping Hands has opened up such a great variety of opportunities that were not open to a single family working alone. The fact that the opportunities fill so quickly shows just how desperate parents are for this kind of organization.

Every event that we have attended has been meticulously organized and so very thoughtfully prepared - from the discussion sheets sent beforehand, to purell and snacks at the event, to pictures sent after the fact.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

We have learned about the computer recycling process and about the insides of computers themselves.

Fabulous!
