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.

My church and I have been involved with Gemma's Angels for several years now. The driving force behind all the good that happens is their founder, Mike Macchioni. Watching Mike and his helpers do all they can to help others. Their efforts with the residents in our local shelters, their providing fruit, bread and vegetables to local agencies and children in our area are just a few of the things that make them such a valuable resource to support.

I stumbled upon Gemma’s Angels when looking for a way to serve in my new community. I had worked with a similar nonprofit in the Midwest and loved the mission. I have found ways for my kids to serve with me and am absolutely convinced that this nonprofit is a small step to ending the poverty cycle.

The Organization, Gemmas Angels, is professionally managed and does a lot of good for the community. They far reach into various areas of youth involvement to homeless centers. I highly recommend donations of time and resources to this powerful organization. I have volunteered some in the past and enjoyed being involved in the organization.

Great people, great mission. They bring fresh fruits and vegetables as well as other things like bread to those in situations and places that have less access to fresh produce. They are great people who will give the shirt off their back to help their neighbors here in central Pennsylvania.

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.
