I have been involved with My Joyful Heart for many years and I have seen first hand the wonderful work they do! Jesus is our CEO and with Him, everything is possible! MJH gives gifts of hygiene, school supplies, clothing, books and toys to all the 700+ children in the program 5 times a year, plus a special birthday gift. Through the generosity of our donors and sponsors, MJH has a beautiful inventory of these items and every single child is "shopped for" individually. They are given clothing in their favorite colors and toys and books that they are interested in. This organization is run almost entirely on volunteer help -- there are only two paid people on staff at the present. God has been good to us and has allowed us to be a blessing to so many children. My Joyful Heart is truly a worthy organization!

I have been a volunteer and board member with My Joyful Heart for many years and I am so impressed with this whole organization. It is Christ-based and God is the CEO! MJH is helping so many children who are in needy circumstances through no fault of their own. They know someone really cares for them when they receive their gifts from us 6 times a year plus a special gift on their birthday! Diane has complete faith that God will provide -- and He does! He has brought so many quality volunteers through our doors, it is so uplifting. I give as much time as possible to this most worthy organization.
