My family has been helping The Green Team Helping Hands Inc. For well over 4 years now. I have taught my kids to give back to others in the community and to never take anything for granted. Ashley has been a great role model to others that need the services that the organization offers. I could not have chosen a better non profit to help serve the Greensboro community with.

I came upon Ashley Benton founder of the Green Team by chance several years ago.
I watched how she put together friends, family, strangers... well there is no stranger to Ashley; Just new friends. She had a hands on Charity where they help those in need for basics such as a sack lunch, hot meal, clothing and other items as needed.
This is all done out of their hearts.
They aren’t paid and every dollar I donate I know is actually going Hand’s on to help someone in need.
The Green team has helped many through bad weather , extreme weather and other emergencies too.
I have seen her pay out of her own pocket to get a family a hotel room for a couple nights to help get them off the streets a cleaned up. Sometimes a tent or blankets.
I live in a different state but when I see good being done anywhere I like to be a part of that.
The Green Team is more then good. They are needed and appreciated by so many that depend on them. Some get their only hot meal of the week from the Green Team. Those meals are made with love. Sometimes it’s that love the homeless need most.

I met the Green Team for the first time after my Father died. My Father was homeless for a long time. The Green Team Helping Hands Inc was there and helped my Father in the last years that my Father was here. The Green Team went above and beyond and shared love to my Father. My Father was given a hotel to stay in for a couple weeks around Christmas time 2017. That Christmas in the year 2017 was less than two months that my Father passed away February 2018. Green Team Helping Hands Inc was there for years and loved my Father very much. I am very thankful that they were there for my Dad when I couldn't. My Father never forgave himself. I did forgive him.

Awesome group! I’ve had the pleasure of serving with them several times and plan to do so again in the future.
Ashely puts a lot of herself into this - preparing the food, toiletry bags, taking donations for clothing and blankets. It’s amazing at how many lives The Green Team touches.

I came across this non-profit in 2013 on Facebook when I was on the search for logo design opportunities for a college assignment in Texas. I reached out to this incredible organization and got in touch with their founder, Ashley Benton, who provides meals, clothing, hygiene essentials to those in need within the Greensboro, NC area. I soon offered my social media services and provided the foundation for an updated website as I was a broke college young adult but wanted to find a way to be of assistance. We all have something to offer, especially our time. It will be worth it for the Green Team Helping Hands Inc. at any capacity.

I have experienced homelessness so I know the importance of having somewhere to get a meal or toiletries. When you are feeling alone and helpless, feeling like no one cares, it means a lot to get a hug or a smile. The Green Team does all of that! I wish I had known about them doing my time out there, however I know people that they help every week. The most important thing that I hear is that they do it with a smile. Some people just need a hand up when they are down. They don't want a hand out, and they really don't want it from someone who looks down on them. The Green Team makes you feel like their is hope. I am so thankful for them and so is this community! I look forward to being a part of this team as a volunteer and whatever else I can do to help!

The ongoing commitment to service that the Green Team Helping Hands has had for the homeless population in and around Greensboro is nothing short of spectacular! I have had the honor and privilege of being able to serve alongside Ashley and her family. Being able to play a small role in helping disadvantaged people is one of the highest callings one can have and I am so incredibly proud of the impact that the Green Team Helping Hands is having both on a local and national scale! Keep up the amazing work!

A common thread that weaves through the heart & soul of a 'Light Carrier' is being connected to spirit by way of intention.

A shift from homelessness to hopefulness and poverty to a wealth philosophy is one heck of an intention, and the angel behind 'GT Helping Hands' (Ashley Benton) on top of all that, also reminds us that when we help others, one hand feeds another's (spiritually, mentally & physically)?

With Ashley & 'The Green Team' you can be confident that you will be seen, that you will be heard and that YOU matter. Is there anything in life that we truly need more than that? Namaste' Ash-Angel

Ashley gives of herself tirelessly and with such enthusiasm. She treats the homeless and the volunteers and donors with dignity, respect and love. And she is who she is in the process. This is a story of a woman who wanted to carry on her Father's dream, and has now made it her own. The world is a better place because of Ashley's big heart.

I have been moved, inspired and motivated by my sister friend Ashley. You know that saying, that say people come in your life for a good reason and inspire you even more. That is what Ashley does to each and everyone that comes across her. For someone that lives far away in Australia and watch the inspiring work that Ashley and her team her doing in her community. The word inspiring doesn't even share half of the good work they do helping those in need. My prayer is people will see what Ashley and her beautiful Team inspirational work . And send any donation to help them help & feed my souls. I always no donation is too small. And if the only donation you can give is by you sparing some time to join and help, please don't hesitate do what you can. As we say no parent can parent alone it takes the all village. I suppose same goes for something this beautiful. Ashley's story and subsequent development of the Foundation, is so inspirational. I feel so blessed to have a connection with an own ambassador sister that is not just an inspiration to her kids but the world at large Love you ash , love your work. Keep Up the Good work Hun . God Bless"

Ashley is an earth angel. She inspires me to be a better person because of the huge heart she has
for the homeless. Her "Friends in need." Ashley's vision and direction are clear and she is pure of heart. The Green Team Helping Hands Inc. is run to provide food, warmth and comfort to the homeless. All proceeds go directly to help them. The Green Team Helping Hands is All Volunteer giving their time as Ashley keeps them inspired with her dreams, making them reality. As Oprah told Ash on twitter... #RockOn"
