We had a great time stocking shelves with ladies. It was nice to know that we are helping people come to JH pantry and find good nutritious food. We will be there next week to help out again.

Today, I volunteered at the thanksgiving grocery giveaway on the behalf of Joshua’s heart organization. Emily, a junior board member organized the event that helped feed 260 families in north Miami. It was an excellently planned and executed event that brought youth and parent volunteers together with the local less fortunate community in the true sense of thanksgiving. It was an extremely humbling and gratifying experience. I am thankful for all the hard work it took to organize such an event and definitely plan on joining more events put forth by this organization .

I helped out at the thanksgiving meal food collection this morning. It was such a wonderful experience and everyone is so kind and welcoming. I was able to talk to the less fortunate and provide them with a complete thanksgiving meal for them. Joshua’s Heart really opened my eyes up to world hunger and i am so glad I joined their foundation. Definitely recommend.

I have been volunteering with Joshua’s Heart Foundation for many years and I have cherished every moment. This organization is unique, unlike any other. One of my favorite aspects is that it is ran entirely by young people who are trying to make a difference in the world. Personally, I have enjoyed volunteering alongside many like minded individuals. Joshua’s Heart isn’t just about reducing poverty levels and ending world hunger, they take their time to build young leaders. Great organization!

Joshua’s Heart is not just about giving food, but also sharing your heart with those that need it most. Members are encouraged to spearhead their own projects or participate in food distributions and food drives in their local areas. Active volunteers are not only helping themselves become better people, but by doing so, help so many others! These teens are true embodiments of the phrase “You are never too young to make a difference.” From my experiences with Joshua, his foundation, and all the incredible volunteers that make his dream a reality, I’ve learned that anyone can do whatever they set their mind to no matter their age.

I don't even know where to begin. I've been apart of Joshua's Heart for about a year now and the impact is just an absolute blessing. I see so many people receiving food assistance for their household and its just heart warming to see that a little kid made it his duty to help other people. The volunteers really work hard at making sure they do their part to help all who come to receive donations. In my opinion the charity really benefits those who give and receive. It's really an eye opener to see that life isn't always so sweet in sunny South Florida and there are people in need of help. But Thank God there are charities out there like Joshua's Heart Foundation who care about helping others and are committed to STOMPING out world hunger! THANK YOU JOSHUA AND KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK

What started out as an opportunity for my daughter to get her school service hour requirements completed/met ended up as my wish to continue volunteering my time to this worthy and wonderful organization. I witnessed firsthand how Joshua’s Heart helps those in need and less fortunate in our community. I encourage anyone looking into making a difference directly by volunteering their time or indirectly by donating monetary funds to consider Joshua’s Heart Foundation.
I enriched my soul for volunteering and left with a happy heart knowing I made a difference in the lives of those that depend on this worthy organization for a meal and a friendly smile.

Our High School Youth Group was introduced to Joshua's Heart through the Miami DOOR program. We had the privilege of spending a day helping Ms. Peggy, Ms. Sharon and Ms. Pam stock shelves and prepare for food distribution. We then had the pleasure to help distribute food to those in need who came through the doors. Joshua's Heart is a front line operation that puts much needed food in the hands of those who need it. We were impressed that fresh breads, fruits, vegetables and milk were offered in addition to box and canned goods. Our high school youth were treated at the end of the day with a FaceTime session with Joshua himself. The entire day left us feeling humbled and grateful. This organization is a shining example that no matter how old you are or how much you have to get started you can make a difference. All it takes is a love for people and a passion to serve. Blessings to you all of you and the work you do each day. If you are looking for a place to connect and help in a community, please consider Joshua's Heart. You will not be disappointed.

I've been volunteering my services in this foundation for three months now and I can see how joyful the people are with the help that they are receiving from the foundation by somehow alleviating their financial struggles by giving them food. I will continue to help the community by volunteering in this foundation during my free time and I urge everybody to do the same. What a wonderful feeling to be able to help!

As an adult volunteer I found their homeless feeding program to be very rewarding and inspiring. It is well organized and a friendly place to work. They are an above board agency doing really good work. I would recommend anyone to volunteer there.

A few years back I was looking for a place to volunteer hands on. I stumbled upon Joshua's heart foundation and haven't looked back. Their mission is amazing and the enthusiasm of the volunteers contagious. This group has grown since I started volunteering just a few short years ago.
When I can be a part of an event feeding the homeless the rewards from the recipients of HOPE BAGS and BOXES is beautifully received by those most needy. Recently I've started to help with the pantry that distributes to those in the community most in need. I arrive and help sort out the food and put on the shelves. Then when the folks come to pick up their food for the week I help them. It feels like a grocery store and the products that are donated are top notch. By this I mean a great variety and many organic options both fresh and boxed.
By helping at Joshua's heart I feel like I'm with extended family. Even if I haven't volunteered in a couple of months you always recognize a familiar face. Thank you for letting me be a part of your great organization and the opportunity to help others!!!

Sincerely,
Angie Novigrod

Joshua's Heart has been a blessing to thousands of needy, hungry, underprivileged, unemployed individuals throughout the nation. I am a parent and have assisted, as well as my two children; it brings great joy to be a part of such an organisation. The happiness and relief on the faces of the individuals receiving packets is priceless. Please support and help to continue to build this foundation to greater heights.

Joshua's Heart is a great organization that has helped me in so many ways. Giving back to the community through Joshua’s Heart has helped me learn many skills that I believe will help me greatly later in life. Not only has it helped me mature as a person by teaching me important values such as appreciation and respect, but it has also taught me practical lessons such as how to run a business. Joshua’s Heart is a great organization run by amazing kids who have inspired me to consistently make a difference in the community and the world.
