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.

I've been involved in many nonprofits over the years, but never before have I been a part of an organization, that is amazing and outstanding as The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust. The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust operates on a very low budget, but used their expertise and hundreds of volunteer hours on helping thousands of peoples in the communities in need. It was an incredible experience working with The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust. They provides basic human needs for thousands of families and individuals requesting assistnace in Michigan. The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust is truly a blessing, without their support my family and I would be among the statistics of individuals that goes to bed hungry every night. I applauds The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust, and wishes them continue success in the work they do.
