Review for Help The Children, Bell, CA, USA
I was looiking for a charity to donate some time years ago and I found out about Help the Children's food pantry in Santa Clarita, Ca. My wife and I worked there as volunteers and I found out more about the organization. It was founded by a couple who went to our church and I didn't know it. I found out that HTC did a whole lot more than just a food pantry. We voulnteered at their warehouse in Bell, Ca and saw that it was a much bigger operation than we ever new.
I eventually became friends with the founder, Roger Presgrove, and was asked to be on HTC's Bd of Directors. From there I found out that Roger and HTC are doing so many great and various things throughout the world. The scope of their work is amazing.
The most incredible thing about HTC is the amazingly low admint costs it incurrs. HTC has overhead of about 1%. HTC clearly is operating to help the needy and not to be a "full emplyment act" with commensarate huge salaries for the charity's workers.. HTC gets so much done for so little. I don't know of any organization that gets more "bang for its buck" than HTC.
