MATTHEWS HELP CENTER
March 28, 2011

We provide cash donations monthly through our church missions offering. We donate in the monthly 'urgent needs' of food, toiltries and office supplies; and seasonal oppertunities...back to school backpacks and adopt a family for christmas. During spring cleaning we take our gently used clothing, house hold items and toys the children have out grown to the thrift store. By attending events at the MHC I have had oppertunity to speak with staff members and board members. The board, staff and volenteers utilize resouces wisely. I know people that have received assistane from the MHC. By providing food, clothing and house hold items, the parents were able to use thier money for the house payment and remain in thier home.

The Great!

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

meeting my need to be part of the community and assisting others in need. Allows me to know that my money and efforts are being used wisely and efficiently.

Ways to make it better...

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

partner with an exsisting organization or facility to provide meals and allow people the oppertunity to cook and serve the meals and provide toiletries. Adopt a neighborhood and make routine visits. My children and I need somewhere to serve and to know what they have and know how blessed they are.

This is the organization that our church has partnered with to fulfill our vision of local missions.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

The church has someone that coordinates activities with the MHC. I attend church, hear about the urgent needs, backpacks or adopt a family for the holiday. The church coordinator has done all the work and makes it simple for us to go out and purchase the needed items, take them to the chuch to be collected and delivers them to the MHC.

What would you tell others about this organization?

All donations...time, money, food, items...are utilized to maximize the return. Engage the board, staff and volenteers...they want to talk with you.
