The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
September 9, 2013

When my husband lost his job and we were struggling financially for several months the LDS church offered to help us by sending us to a place called the bishop's storehouse to receive food. When we arrived I was surprised to find dozens of families like ourselves filling their shopping carts with food and necessities. I have since learned that the LDS church offers this all across the world and they do so through their members donations and investments in cattle ranches and such. We receive meats, dairy, and canned goods during the time my husband was un-employed. Everytime we visited the store house it was full of people receiving help. I'm thankful for the help we received in a time of stress and need. Thank you to all who make this charity possible.

Whispering Canyons Foundation Inc.
September 4, 2013

I hooked up with Whispering Canyons Foundation when we were helping a neighboring foster child make it to the facility to ride. Within a short period of time I realized that I had found something very special. I have been a volunteer now for almost 2 years and have watched the staff and trainers work with many under-privileged and what would be considered "at risk" teens. I have seen lives changed. And that's enough to give any non-profit a great rating. Whispering Canyons is a pretty small foundation with a big desire to grow and I would highly recommend it as a place to volunteer or to donate.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The foundation is run by caring people that are interested in working with the participants- not fundraising. If I could change anything I would like to find a way to open doors to fundraising as 100% of all donations go to the program and the teens. No one is paid.
