Review for MATTHEWS HELP CENTER, Matthews, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love volunteering at the Matthews HELP Center. The staff and volunteers are always so generous and welcoming - it's like a family. We cannot thank our loyal donors enough for their constant support which helps us to provide assistance to our neighbors in need. And our clients are cheerful and appreciative of not only the crisis assistance we provide, but the "treasures" that are available in our thrift boutique at affordable prices for those on a tight budget. My husband and I are so impressed with how efficiently the HELP Center is managed and with all the assistance they are able to provide through creative and effective programs (e.g. backpacks, partnership with the local farmers' market to provide fresh produce for the food pantry, and holiday family adoptions) that it has become our top priority charitable cause to support both financially and with our time.
