I have been volunteering for Joshuas Heart for a while now and it has truly been an amazing experience. I love volunteering for this organization and love everything that it stands for. The mission of Joshuas Heart is to Stomp Out Hunger, and they do it regularly with food distributions and with a food pantry that you can walk up to and receive Food. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to make a difference in this world.

I was a former junior advisory board member for Joshua’s Heart Foundation as well as a volunteer. I love this organization and everything it stands for. This organization was created in order to help people struggling and in need of food in underdeveloped communities. There are many people starving and hungry with no resources in order to get daily food, which is why this organization is so necessary in not only my community but various other communities around the United States.

Joshuas Heart Foundation was started with the heart of an innocent child just simply wanting to help the hungry! The foundation grew over the years with the help of many other innocent children who saw the vision to help the needy, hungry and helpless! This foundation has to continue for many years to come. Lives are changed! Future leaders are being created! Please support this fantastic foundation!!

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.

I happily recommend this organization. Joshua's heart is full of individuals who care about their community. My daughter has been a member of the Jr Advisory Board for the past 6 years. They have organized food distributions, they have provided a hot meal and Christmas presents along with books for families at their annual Christmas feast, they have provided food at Thanksgiving and now they have a food pantry that's open daily for those who are in need. The organization not only provides for the community, but it gives our children an outlet to serve and lead. I can't think of a better Organization for your children to be a part of. It was founded by a young man and it shows that you are never too young to make a difference.

Joshua’ Heart Foundation has been such a huge part of my daughters life for so many years, they have mentored and supported her through middle school and all the way through high school graduation . Every year through their vision Joshua and Claudia have come together to not only give to the community but build up the confidence of and spirit of giving to its members. I think it is a wonderful organization that selflessly gives 365 days a year!

I first encountered Joshua's Heart foundation a few weeks after my daughter started middle school . We were going through the transition of a new school experience and almost immediately we were informed that the school was having an event to help families with food, uniforms, and school supplies! All I could say is wow what a wonderful new school ! My family was so surprised that at the event kids of all ages were packaging goodies , backpacks, and essentials for all of us families. Our school had the need and Joshua's Heart Foundation really provided more than food, they showed our students that they too could help make a difference ! My daughter joined Joshua's Heart Foundation ! I want to say Thank you to the dedicated volunteers and partners, who make Joshua's mission possible.

JHF is the best Non-Profit Oganization for young people who want to give back to their communities. Not only are JHFs volunteers carrying out Joshua's vision, they are fully supported to carry out their own, with the organizations help. If you want your kids involved in an organization with high value, morals, integrity, and opportunities to grow into good citizens, give JHF a try. Family for life!

Joshua's heart foundation is such a unique organization. The simple fact that it took the heart and determination of one little boy, with the support of his mother and others around him, to make such a great difference in the lives of many, is inspirational in itself. Joshua is such a great role model and ambassador for children everywhere, and surely opens the eyes of adults as well, while leading in the arena of stopping world hunger. Joshua was kind enough to come out to our school on Career Day and motivate our Elementary school students to make a difference in the communities in which they live, in whatever way they can. He also demonstrated to them that you are never to young to move mountains. His humanitarian values resonate throughout the cafeteria and his words resounded in the ears of our young students. He made such an impression on them. Not only did Joshua attend Career Day, he developed a bond with our school, as he has with many. He graciously introduced and implemented his food distribution program to our families and the community, feeding 100 families. What a magnificent gesture for a Title one school which 90% of the student population is on free an reduced lunch. We are actually preparing for our second implementation of the food distribution program at the end of April. Joshua, his mother and entire staff are kind, caring, and giving. We appreciate their hard work, dedication and commitment towards making this world a better place one meal at a time. Thank you!!!

Joshua's Heart has shaped me into the person I am today. By allowing me to be Vice Chair of the Junior Advisory Board, I have had the chance to step out of my comfort zone. I have learned many skills that I can put to use in all of my future endeavors. Not only have I learned very useful skills, but I have met some incredible people who I have been able to make good friendships with.

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
