I have volunteered many times for this organization. I have never realized how many low income and homeless families there really were. Watching how grateful they were to receive the items given away , it really pulled at my heart. This company always makes sure that everyone in line has what they need. Even during hot weather cold water was given to the families . It really amazes me with what these people do . How much it just feels like they genuinely care about the families who do with out . Keep up the good work !
I've helped out with some other community projects but can honestly say none felt as great as helping out with the events held by On Your Feet. A great sense of relief when you see these people come who have very little or nothing, and you get to give all these products and clothing to them and see their faces just light up. A big feeling of just joy and goodness when you look at all the good that they have done and really a thought to think that i got to help out with such an amazing event. I not only got out to help reach out to others thanks to On Your Feet, but they have also helped me tremendously. I just can't wait to help out at the next event!!

I received a donation of guess clothing and other name brand clothing , this is the only non profit that gives out as much clothing as they do ! the people are very kind and always so helpful at every event I have been too. #grateful
The events I have attended have had so much to offer and have always been a blessing , especially during the holidays . I have been able to put together holiday dinners and always have had christmas presents during xmas because of these awsome people . Thank you for allowing me to give my kids a christmas .
My name is Chester I am formerly unemployed and I would like to thank this company for helping me get together clothing for job interviews. I now I have full time job , Thank you so much !
I was on the streets with my daughter, in desperate need of clothing and I came to one of these events and it just was such a blessing to be able to feel like someone really cared about my family . The employees were so kind and accomodating to our needs. Thank you so much and God Bless this company !
Review from Guidestar
I am a visitor from a galaxy far far away. Everyone on my home planet was greedy and selfish and mean as the devil. I searched the universe for a loving, caring and giving people. My ship landed at 'On Your Feet' and I knew right away I had reached my final destination. There were wonderful beings passing out food, clothing, water, bedding and many other treasurers to the needy families. I joined in and felt my heart swell with pride. I had finally found a place where I can help others and make this world a beautiful and happy place to exist. Because of 'On Your Feet' the species will live long and prosper.
First let me start by thanking On Your Feet Inc. for showing me how good it feels to help those in need. I am a retired city worker and was introduced to On Your Feet Inc. as a volunteer. That was 5 years ago and have not stopped sense. On Your Feet Inc. helps anywhere between 3000 to 4000 families per event. To see the smiles on the faces of the families they assist is priceless. I love helping them as they pass out food, clothing, shoes, personal care products, bedding and other items that help bless the lives of the less fortunate.
I recently worked yet another of the great events at On Your Feet... I was at the book station, and cannot tell you how delightful it was to hand each child a bag of books hand picked to their reading level. They would open those books and read right while they were in line! This group is always on the spot to fill something for the tummy, soul, warmth, refreshment, and comfort, but this Saturday also had something for the mind. Each event has been better than the last. I am looking forward to working the next as well.
As a volunteer for On Your Feet, I've got to experience first hand the AMAZING work and efforts that this nonprofit is putting forth in the community and all over. I believe that they have not only been great at providing for the community but a great motivation for the community to strive through the rough times. They serve as a reminder that someone out there cares for the well being of those who are afflicted during this down and out economy. I've truly been inspired by these wonderful people to always be kind and think of others no matter my current situation. For even if you can only offer a warm smile and a point in the right direction, you never know - you may be that helping hand that lifts someone to get back on their feet.
Volunteering with this nonprofit organization has been a eye opening experience for me. I've never truly considered all the many people in need living in my community. I've witnessed the struggle that many of the clients have had to fight through to get to the place of need that they were in when they walked into On Your Feet's doors. I am only honored to have been on the giving end and at the end of the day it has truly brought myself closer to feeling like I've made an impact on others lives and what a fulfilling feeling that has been. Thank you, On Your Feet.
