Help in Charlotte County is a great non-profit, faith-based coalition of churches, organizations, governmental agencies, and businesses working together to facilitate and create effective sustainable community services that provide for the physical, educational, spiritual, medical, and mental health needs of the body, mind, and spirit. They help those in need of food and assist other organizations that need funding like food pantries, they also have a large role in fundraising to obtain the ability to help other organizations within the county. This is a very good organization and I'm blessed to be a part of it.

Fighting hunger has been a personal mission for myself and my family since I was young. I was happy to discover Help in Charlotte County in 2012 through friends who were and are Board members. At first I volunteered so I had the opportunity to understand and get to know about this organization works. Then happily on my 50th birthday I became a Board member. What sets us apart is our relationship with God in everything we try to do for our County. We truly seek Him first. And He has blessed us and our community. We as members and a group are committed in our Fight Against Hunger and spreading God's Love.

H.E.L.P. in Charlotte County is a wonderful addition to our Handfuls of Purpose Food Pantry at the Englewood East Church of Christ in Englewood, FL. We are always included in every food donation given to the local pantries in Charlotte County. The turkey donations are especially welcomed in November for our Thanksgiving Day distribution which allows us to give all our families food for the holiday. Elaine Oliver is a wonderful and caring leader of this non-profit, she is a tireless worker and is blessed with great volunteers.

I have worked with H.E.L.P for the last few years and without this non-profit, the Church food pantries in Charlotte County would be in real bad shape. They go above and beyond to help those folks that really need help. Here in Charlotte County the jobs are not plentiful and families at times have a hard time feeding their families, and above all their children. HELP stands behind their meaning (His Everlasting Love For People). People tend to come to the churches for assistance and HELP steps up to the plate and they go out of their way to help the Food Pantries in Charlotte County. Thank You Elaine.

H.E.L.P. in Charlotte County is such a blessing to local non-profits who help those in need in the county. My non-profit has been blessed to receive food and toiletries at various times. What a God-send Elaine and all the wonderful volunteers are. if it was not for their help and all that they do, many individuals would go without and we would not be able to help as many families as we do.
I feel blessed and honored to be affiliated with such a remarkable organization.

H.E.L.P. in Charlotte County strives to meet the needs of those in our area for those who truly need it in the most cost-effective ways possible. We are looking forward to expanding our work with the food banks while developing our programs to meet the needs of those with mental health challenges and for prisoners re-entering society. What a tremendous organization to be a part of, and what an honor to be able to serve in this capacity.

H.E.L.P. in Charlotte County is a wonderful organization which works to provide food to over 20 food pantries and feeding programs in Charlotte County. They organize Feed the Harbor, Stuff the Trolly, the Turkey Trott and other events to provide items to the pantries when the shelves are low. They also work hard to raise funds to purchase food by the truckload. Elaine Oliver and her dedicated volunteers are a blessing to the food pantries, feeding programs and those in need in Charlotte County.

As I've been having a hard time with finances due to health issues and spending allot of money in meds to be able to breath, they have been most helpful in helping with my piece of mind and stress level by helping with food! Thank you so much for the help I have received!!

I am confident that when I contribute to HELP in Charlotte County Inc., that my dollars are doing more good that they could do with many other very reputable and respectable nonprofits. HELP operates on a shoe string budget for overhead and, for such a small organization, manages to help many other nonprofits feed the way too many hungry and needy folks in our community. Elaine Oliver and her helpers go the extra mile in their efforts and make a big difference.
