Gemma’s Angels is a proactively involved non-profit doing a whole lot of good for those who are less fortunate. It is well known in the Dauphin and Lebanon counties primarily providing fresh fruits and vegetables to the homeless, soup kitchens and food banks in need. One of the neatest activities they do is at Christmas when they conduct Christmas parties at area shelters for homeless girls and boys. And, yes,, no big surprise, Santa appears providing special gifts to those kids. If you are looking for a charity to support, please go out on the internet and look up Gemma Angels where there is lots of great information about this group.

Gemmas Angels is a blessing to everyone in the community. They have visited many events throughout the city of Harrisburg with their truck blessing families with their fresh produce.

This organization does so much good for so many people who otherwise cannot do for themselves. I had the pleasure of volunteering at a fundraising event and everyone there was extremely welcoming and amazing to me and my family. As a previously homeless child, organizations like Gemma's Angels give hope that one day you'll be okay and you'll be able to do good for others. Thank you for providing so much to the community.

Gemma's Angels is an organization filled with great people and a great purpose. This non-profit satisfies a need that is often overlooked and forgotten-- not just providing the impoverished with food, but healthy, fresh produce, all while encouraging healthy eating to youth that would not receive that exposure otherwise. Everything done by this organization is done in the best interest of those in need, and every experience I have had with the group has been nothing short of inspiring. I love helping this group out, and if you have the chance you should too!

Gemma's Angels is quite the gem if you ask me. By providing fresh fruits and vegetables to corporations who provide service to those dealing with food insecurity in the community, enables EVERYONE the opportunity of a well balanced nutritious meal. It's great to know there is a nonprofit like Gemma's that focuses primarily on bringing nutrition from the soil not factories.

We have had the privilege of working with Gemma's Angels for years now, and while there are many positive words that can describe our experience, certainly not the least would be "totally dependable partner!"

They ways that they have supported our mission over the years are too many to list -- yet in every instance, the heart for people and having positive impact on their lives is a constant. We are SO grateful for Gemma's Angels -- truly our community would be at a loss without them. THANKS GEMMA'S ANGELS for all of your dedication and support.

My family and I have volunteered with Gemma's Angels over the past several years with a number of their programs and projects. The work that they do has helped so very many families eat healthier because of the fresh produce they provide. Their new All-Kids Farmer's Mobile Market is going to be a big hit with area kids in the backpack programs. We can't wait to help!

Gemmas Angels is a wonderful non-profit. I volunteered there for multiple days and couldn't have been left feeling any better. The look on the faces of the people that we delivered fresh fruits on vegetables was unforgettable. I would volunteer everyday if I had he time.
