MATTHEWS HELP CENTER
October 17, 2013

The Matthews HELP Center is a tremendous asset to the people Matthews. My company contributes to the Bounceback BackPack Program, which provides a backpack of food each weekend to 60 needy children in our local elementary school. The kids really look forward to receiving the backpack at school each Friday, because it means they won't have to worry about finding something to eat that weekend. It is a great way for local companies to get involved in serving their local community.

We also adopt a family at Christmas thru the HELP Center. While the recipients of our donations are grateful for the gifts, we too are grateful for the opportunity to help them.

Without the coordination of the HELP Center, we would not have known that this need exists. Thank you for making us aware of the struggles in our own backyard, so we can assist our neighbors and grow as a community.

Girl Scouts Hornets Nest Council
February 12, 2011

I have been a troop leader in this Council for 6 years. The amount of support and guidance I have received has been terrific. Our district has had the most fabulous women step up and guide us. They are great examples to the girls of how women can be strong leaders who CAN make the world a better place. They bring innovative ideas to keep the girls interested through their teen years -- no easy task in this day and age! They offer a variety of programs that are learning experiences, fun challenges, skill strengthening, and most important of all, ways to build lifelong friendships. I am proud to be a member of this great organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They have given me the resources to lead my troop effectively. I have learned many things and have grown personally from being part of this group. My relationship with my daughter is stronger as I get to see a different side of her when she is participating in GS activities.

Ways to make it better...

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

give them the $5000 prize so they can continue their mission of helping girls grow into strong women who will be tomorrow's leaders.
