I have been very impressed with the leadership, vision and execution of WIN. They make a difference in people's lives in our community and around the world. They focus on the real needs of an individual as well as a people group and use insight and practicality to provide ways for individuals to better their lives, learn skills to enable them to live their lives out of poverty or difficult circumstances. They both "give a person a fish" so they can eat for a meal, and "teach a person to fish" so they can eat for a lifetime!

World Impact Network is making a huge difference both locally, in the communities on the East side of Lake Washington here in the Seattle area, and internationally, as evidenced by their quick and efficient responses to disasters around the world.

I love how the Renewal Food Bank treats it's clients with respect and dignity. When people are in need their self esteem is already low, the way the Renewal food bank is set up encourages people.

I have seen the hundreds of people including moms with babies, the elderly, indigent, newly unemployed and many families . . . that benefit weekly from the food bank. I am pleased to have been able to give to such a worthy cause in today's economic climate. WIN is a win for all of us. Dave and Cammie Marrujo

I was there when World Impact Network was founded. I saw the earnest good will as they started their first project, a food bank. I volunteered with WIN for several years, and was always impressed with how the staff focused on meeting the needs of those in need, with dignity and respect. Many years later, they continue to meet needs both in my city and across the ocean. They are truly making a difference. The fact they've been in "business" so long is testimony to the needs they meet.

I am always happy to contribute to WIN - I know they use donations to their utmost. Just walk through their office, one of those semi-permanent mobiles without plumbing, and you know they dedicate their funds to helping others, not to administration. If you're looking for a place that knows how to stretch a dollar, this is it.

My view of W.I.N. based in Bellevue, Washington is that the organization brings the biggest bang for the buck possible, They have a local and international focus, teaching/showing/enabling people in under resourced areas around the world how to become self-sustaining through micro-enterprise and clean water, while not ignoring those locally who need assistance.

The Great!

For years I have been watching the wonderful things WIN and its founders provide for our community and am astounded at their committment and generosity. The Renewal Food Bank is amazing and so are the people that run it. The volunteers and their outreach is awe inspiring. My family and I have been members of the Gathering Place Church in Bellevue for over 12 years. Our youngest daughter was very involved in the Youth Group there. She became good friends with Pastor Peter and Gaby's son, David. My husband and I would help with transporting the youth, collecting food and clothing, sorting and bagging for many different functions. What a great experience for all of us to be a part of the excitement. My daughter (now an adult) learned so much about kindness, compassion and giving. To this day she has the VanBreda's ministry to thank for teaching her the importance of world missions, community outreach, and family values, We are grateful to WIN for their impact on our lives and letting us be a part of such a wonderful, fine organization.

The organization is awesome the way it is. If I had the means I would give them a bigger facility and donate millions of dollars to help them so they could help everyone in need.

I have volunteered with WIN in the past, bringing Youth group kids to the food bank to help unpack and sort the food. We also helped clients during open hours of the food bank. The staff is very uplifting and encouraging. The youth really came away with a lot. I have also kept up-to-date on all of WIN's projects around the world. The training they gave the women in Uganda is an exceptional example. For 6 years, I think, WIN went to Uganda giving life and career skills training and watched the miracles of changed lives unfold! These women turned around and taught others and are now able to provide for their families. Another great example is the Youth Summer Camps they ran for local teens. The youth did community service projects, in and out side of the food bank. Often the youth were struggling in school and near dropping out. The staff and range of activities really built them up, they grew in self confidence and developed a good sense of self. It's been exciting seeing them years later as young adults, complete in college education and giving back to their communities. This an awesome organization to be involved in!

After being a donor to WIN and their Food Bank I became a recipient of the good that World Impact Network has done for years. I was laid off from my job and after 18 months of being unemployed, I found myself at the WIN Food Bank. I am so grateful for their kindsness and compassion and the upbeat positive attitude everyone had. Those weekly trips to the food bank made it possible to not have to choose between eating or paying the rent. The Food Bank had a wide range of healthy foods; protein, veggies, grains, even fresh fruit. Never in my wildest imaginings have I pictured being out of work and unable to pay basic living expenses. Thank you WIN for being the helping hand when it was need.

The Great!

My wife and I were introduced to World Impact Network (WIN) through our involvement for over 6 years at the Gathering Place in Bellevue, WA. Gaby and Peter who oversee WIN are fantastic people truly committed to making a difference as evidenced by their very hands-on approach to serving others. Their impact on communities is multifaceted with superior management of the resources they have available including the many volunteers who support the greater cause. The local community is served well through the Renewal Foodbank sponsored by WIN, the largest food bank in the area, and their youth program provides mentoring and skills training for the immediate community. The world at large is served through their international missions trip activity which seeks every year to meet the needs of those in impoverished and often tragic situations. I hope and pray they continue to receive increasing financial and volunteer support enabling them to expand the impact they are having!

The Great!

We actually lived very close to the Renewal foodbank and were able to see the benefit to the community. Also, we know many of the generous people who participate in the missions trips across the globe and the impact on them as they serve others is as great as the needs they are meeting!

Seek ways to ensure its ongoing success through replication, expansion, and legacy planning.
