I have volunteered numerous times over the years for North Hills Community Outreach. I'm always impressed with the warmth and compassion that the NHCO staff always demonstrates towards their volunteers and clients. I'm certain that they are efficient and trustworthy with the resources they are given, and I know I have felt lots of appreciation every time I've volunteered for them. They are such a wonderful organization; so giving and caring to those in need, and such a valuable organization within our community.

Through working in the Food Pantry, at the Coat giveaway, and NHCO's charity and silent auction events, I've seen how willing donors in our community are to give to North Hills Community Outreach. It's a good cycle of service; NHCO does a great job giving to the community, and in return, the community is more than willing to give back to them.

I have volunteered for the past year with the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry once a month at NHCO in Allison Park, PA. It has been a true highlight of my year to be able to personally interact with individuals who need a little extra help to feed their families. I am grateful to the NHCO staff for allowing me to spend time with these families and a way for me to "give back" to our local community. It is a joy to see the smile on their faces when we can provide fresh produce or dessert treats to them; they enjoy choosing from the many soups, vegetables and fruits available on the food pantry shelves. NHCO respects the dignity of each individual. I am very proud to serve as a volunteer for their Thanksgiving Food Drive and their fundraising "Dessert theater" as well as in the food pantry...in many ways, NHCO is a true beacon of hope and education for the entire community. I applaud the staff and all the volunteers for their daily commitment to serving others.

Every month, new families come to the Food Pantry due to economic conditions. Their faces tell the story of feeling awkward; perhaps this is the first time in their lives that they need a little help to survive. When they leave the Pantry however, they have made friends with all of us who "shop with them", pack their groceries and carry them out to their cars. They have retained their dignity and feel empowered by their choices. NHCO uplifts the individual and they, in turn, uplift their families.

NHCO is an excellent organization that has been helping to educate people and better their lives for so many years. The only improvement is that they could use a bigger and newer facility in order to distribute even more clothing, food and programs to the community they serve.

I VOLUNTEER FOR THE COMMUNITY AUTO PROGRAM FOR THE NORTH HILLS COMMUNITY OUTREACH. THIS PROGRAM TAKES DONATED CARS AND FIXES THEM UP FOR PEOPLE BELOW A CERTAIN INCOME LEVEL. I HAVE SEEN IT DO WONDERS FOR FAMILIES. IN ADDITION, NHCO ALSO PROVIDES FOOD FOR THE NEEDY, WINTER COATS, FRIENDLY VISITS AND MUCH MORE. IT IS AN ORGANIZATION FILLED WITH WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT THOSE IN NEED. I AM PROUD TO BE A PART OF IT.

NHCO is a well respected not for profit organization meeting it's mission on a daily basis. The administration and staff are well qualified and are willing to go an extra mile to meet the needs of their consumers. As a volunteer I have had an excellent working relationship with everyone at NHCO. The resources at NHCO are extensive and a real asset to Pittsburgh! As an example, one of the exemplary programs at NHCO is, Community Auto. This transportation program has helped hundreds of people buy an automobile, thus helping people in need get to and from a job and becoming tax paying citizens with dignity. NHCO IS A GREAT NONPROFIT!

With the excellent help of the CEO and staff at NHCO we were able to form a vehicle donation program, Community Auto, that provided low cost vehicles to people on public assistance so they could keep a job with dignity. This program was the first nonprofit Vehicle Dealership established in PA. Donors of vehicles are able to get the maximum value from their donation and help people in need of transportation. A win win situation for everyone!

They only change I would like to see is the expansion of their services to a larger area in PA. NHCO is a model organization for other nonprofits to follow.

Community Auto is a program under NHCO. It sells reliable automobiles to low-income, working individuals and families. Individuals donate cars to Community Auto, which, in turn, repairs and inspects them and sells them for about one third less than what they would cost at a used car lot. It is a real win-win proposition. The donors receive the maximum tax deduction because their cars are resold to needy individuals, and the individuals purchase a more reliable vehicle for significantly less than they could through any other channel.

The two individuals responsible for the program, Jennifer Carr and Ed Holdcroft, and genrous, caring, understanding and supportive of the clients. The provide a wonderful service to the community and are great to work with!

North Hills Community Outreach is a Wonderful organization. Volunteering for the Senior program does so much for our community. Without NHCO and "Open your heart to a senior", there would be elderly people in our community without, transportation to Dr. Appts, grocery stores, or simple conveniences that we all take for granted....like being able to walk outside on your sidewalk without worrying about slipping in the snow...thanks to the snow removable volunteers from the NHCO.
Because of this organization, and all aspects of their community service, the North Hills of Pgh is much, much better off.
