I collaborated with THOG on a community initiative to end homelessness. Months later I became a Board member and I am forever grateful. When an organization lines up with your purpose and helps others in such an authentic way, there is nothing better. Truly an organization touching the hearts of many.

The heart of giving is an amazing organization, in our time of need they afforded my children clothing and other necessities that I was unable to provide for them. They are a great organization with amazing behind the scenes volunteers who give their all to help. Their drive to help everyone in need is vast and done purely out of the goodness of their hearts. God bless each and everyone of you for your efforts and support.

This organization is amazing and they help others in with kindness and compassion. They also come together as a community and have other members that help out and give to others in need also. Everything is absolutely free and everyone is so friendly. I would give way more stars if I could!!!

I have been a part of the Heart of Giving Organization for the past 3 years. In my opinion, this is a very essential organization. Unlike other nonprofit organizations, there is not any red tape to be had. Members simply make their needs known and the generosity of the community takes over. You never have to worry or wonder if needs are being met. We see it every day. It is so heartwarming to see new home owners or new parents come to this organization to request blessings, have their needs met and once they are able, come back to this very organization and pay it forward. We are here to help and serve the community. We truly believe that showing compassion offers the community hope especially during these unprecedented times in which we are currently living.

I have been affiliated with this organization for more than three years now. I love this organization! There isn't any red tape or middlemen. It is simply a giver blessing another person in need. I have observed firsthand how this group offers hope to the community. I have observed friendships and partnerships formed. I have witnessed several members receiving blessings and in turn give back, keeping the cycle of giving on-going. It is a unique group in that the impact is seen and felt immediately.

So I wrote a review before however I've come to find out that this group has it's ups and downs. Amy is a terrific admin however they other admin have completely dishonored this group name when they turned off a comment and block it when a young lady asked for prayer. Simple prayer she wasn't asking for money or anything. I don't understand how you could do such a thing. I'm so disappointed

Wow what a great organization! Mrs Amy Jones is a awesome person with a heart of gold!
Whenever I have something to donate I instantly call upon Mrs Amy Jones. I know she will place and provide items and donations in the right hands of those in dire need!
Early this ya I had a cousin that just had a newborn and a 6yr old. She need help. She was just getting out of a bad situation and back on her feet. This time I called upon Mrs Amy Jones for help with my cousin. All I can say after our phone conversation Mrs. Jones had my cousin whole apartment furnish, food in cabinets, clothes for children, pampers for baby. Also a pray for my cousin not to worry nor, stress because she was blessed! Now that right there is what The Heart of Giving is about! Sincerely, Shivette (Vette)

VA Information Bulletin Board, “The Heart Of Giving” has changed me in so many ways. I have always been a giving person but not as much as I am now. I used to try and sell my used belongings but after being apart of this organization and being able to hear the impact it has on someone's life just by giving has been a great experience for me. I most recently started donating food to a local organization who prepares food for people in need. It warms my heart to be able to help someone out. It is such a small gesture on my part but so big for someone who is hungry. This is also teaching my children to be givers as well. We need more people in the world like this.
