As a member of Faith United Methodist Church in Orland Park, I found the caring supporting nature of the mostly volunteer staff, to be almost overwhelming! The dedication to serving those in need is EVERYWHERE within the organization! God has truly blessed those who have had the opportunity to provide either products and assist in the function of caring! You truly are transforming the lives of the school children you serve!

My Joyful Heart is a compassionate, dedicated, and generous organization! They work hard all year to make sure our students receive gifts and basic necessities for all the holidays throughout the year. My Joyful Heart has made such an impact on our students, their families, and our school community. We are so proud to be included in their program! Thank you!
My Joyful Heart is an amazing organization! They have helped many of our students for the last two years and are always willing to help new students. The Ray Graham community, especially our students, are very grateful and thankful to be sponsored by My Joyful Heart. They have provided many of our students with seasonal clothing, school supplies, hygiene products, and more! The work of Diane Carroll and everyone at My Joyful Heart has made a huge difference in the lives of our students and their families! Thanks again from everyone at Ray Graham Training Center High School!!
My Joyful Heart is a great organization that works to provide children with basic necessities that we take for granted. Imaging having a birthday with no gift, christmas with nothing to celebrate and trying to succeed in school with no supplies. I as a mother cannot imagine that and my heart breaks for these children. I have volunteered for the past few years and see the hard work and dedication of this organization. Sadly each year the needs grow for children who have less. If you can donate to this cause I promise your donation is FOR THE CHILDREN. For those who have and continue to donate May God Bless You Abundantly
My Joyful Heart is almost special faith-based organization that blesses so many children! I feel that it has blessed my life , too by allowing me to help in a small way by volunteering and sponsoring a most wonderful little girl. They have proven that all things are possible with God…and a Joyful Heart!
My Joyful Heart is a wonderful organization that truly makes an impact on the lives of the impoverished children in the greater Chicagoland area. I have always looked forward to and continue to love volunteering there. I really feel like I am making a difference in these children's lives. There is such a great atmosphere at My Joyful Heart with Diane and her dedicated staff and volunteers. It is simply an amazing non-profit.
I have been involved with My Joyful Heart for many years and I have seen first hand the wonderful work they do! Jesus is our CEO and with Him, everything is possible! MJH gives gifts of hygiene, school supplies, clothing, books and toys to all the 700+ children in the program 5 times a year, plus a special birthday gift. Through the generosity of our donors and sponsors, MJH has a beautiful inventory of these items and every single child is "shopped for" individually. They are given clothing in their favorite colors and toys and books that they are interested in. This organization is run almost entirely on volunteer help -- there are only two paid people on staff at the present. God has been good to us and has allowed us to be a blessing to so many children. My Joyful Heart is truly a worthy organization!
I have been a volunteer and board member with My Joyful Heart for many years and I am so impressed with this whole organization. It is Christ-based and God is the CEO! MJH is helping so many children who are in needy circumstances through no fault of their own. They know someone really cares for them when they receive their gifts from us 6 times a year plus a special gift on their birthday! Diane has complete faith that God will provide -- and He does! He has brought so many quality volunteers through our doors, it is so uplifting. I give as much time as possible to this most worthy organization.
My Joyful Heart is an amazing children's charity that helps kids around the Chicago area. I've seen the positive impact it has on the kids in the program and hope to continue volunteering with them for years to come.
The awesome people behind this charity are what makes it so special. Each child in the program is treated as an individual and receives items that are most needed -- like shoes, food or a winter coat in our frigid Chicago winters.
As an added bonus -- volunteering here is fun! It's a great group of people who genuinely care about each other and the children we serve.
I'm grateful for Diane Carroll for creating My Joyful Heart because it truly is a joyful place. We bring hope to the kids who need it most.
I am a teacher in a special needs classroom. I found out about My Joyful Heart 3 years ago. They have helped the students in my classroom get many things they need and also want. I am very grateful for their hard work and how much they love the children and families they serve. I am very appreciative. Thank you.
I have been involved with My Joyful Heart for several years, not only as a volunteer but also as a sponsor. I feel blessed to be a part of this Christian based charity that helps so many children locally. Many of the schools have informed Diane of how much better the children are doing because of My Joyful Heart's involvement in their lives. The children are so appreciative of what the charity provides them, as is evidenced by the thank you notes they are asked to write to their sponsors.
I have been a volunteer for several years. I have seen this amazing program grow each year. It is inspriing to see the results of volunteers that want to make a difference. I was overwhelmed with the amount of love and compassion that is delivered with each gift event. Many hands doing "WWJD"...what would Jesus do. I plan on continuing giving my support, by sponsoring a child, donating my time and speading the good word of the results that this organization produces. Diane Carroll has touched many and I am proud to be a part of her "heartbeats" team. God Bless My Joyful Heart ~ you provide hope and many, many smiles!!
