The Gift of a Helping Hand Charitable Trust has been a god send for me. Being a full-time nursing student with limited funds, I have had the opportunity to receive the items that I needed from this organization. Each and every time I was in need this organization was there to service my every need. Whether I needed food, clothes, or personal items, I received what I needed. In my visits to this organization I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Mrs. Cathy Russell. She is very professional, hardworking, caring, giving, respectful, and knowledgable regarding her business. The atmosphere is very warm with a welcoming spirit. I have been very blessed to have an organization such as A Gift of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust help when I really needed to be help. I look forward to one day in the future being able to work for this organization and being a donor. I would recommend this organization to anyone that needs a helping hand or just need someone that cares.
