I have been volunteering with Joshua's Heart for several months. Recently I assisted them in packing food, to ship to Jamaica to help stomp out hunger. I was happy to be a part of that mission. Joshua's Heart Foundation is a very hard working, dedicated, and fun team to work with. Amazing job, well done guys.

Joshuas Heart Foundation Inc is an excellent example of our youth making a difference. This organization was started by a young boy with a big heart who wanted to help feed the hungry. It is an organization of children addressing the very grown up problem of hunger. My daughter has learned that you are never too young to help and that an act of kindness takes on a life of it's own. Joshuas Heart is sharing meals and stomping out hunger across the americas.

Joshua's Heart Foundation is an extremely well organized not for profit organization that works with many different City's and other not for profits on providing free services to low income families. The City of Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department is currently partnering with them on providing free food to low income families in the 33311 area in November. Without the work that Joshua's Heart Foundation takes the lead on we would not be able to offer this free service to the families in need in this community. On behalf of the families in the 33311 zip code, thank you Joshua Heart for organizing these wonderful free services as they are greatly needed.

This week Joshua's Heart Foundation coordinated with a team in Jamaica to send food and clothing for families and children in a rural part of the country. So many hearts and spirits will be uplifted by this act of kindness. A big thanks to God and all his helping hands in making this possible.

Johuas Heart Foundation (JHF) is one of the few non-profits where children can actively participate. For at least four years, I have witnessed the OUTSTANDING work of this foundation which embodies care and respect for all humankind. Today, conversations with my children include topics about social responsibility and it's a direct result of being involved with JHF!

Just a few days ago I volunteered with Joshua's Heart to help pack and ship food to less fortunate and I was simply amazed of the hardwork they put in just to help others. Joshua's heart is my favorite nonprofit organization to work with it. I love what they do for others.

When my 14 year old daughter was required to do community service for her school, JHF was her only option. All other organizations had an age requirement of at least 16. JHF allowed children & teens of all ages, to participate in the planning, packing & delivery of foods for the less fortunate. My daughter learned more about non profit & governing with a global awareness & goal to stomp out world hunger.

Amazing leadership training for kids! Supportive people who really care RUN this organization with all the help you need to help others! Not only have my kids matured by learning how to lead others to do good, but their hearts are in the right place when they see what a difference you can make to others when you give!

My daughter started volunteering with Joshua at age eight. It has been an amazing opportunity for her and for our family to work together with JHF in different ways. JHF has grown and expanded and it is great to see more and more young people join every year to make a change in our world. Congratulations Joshua and Claudia!

Have worked with Joshua's Heart Foundation on numerous events the last two years as a volunteer. They are a youthful group, focused and relentless in their pursuit of their mission to help end hunger. They are led by visionary Josh who is surrounded by some of the most capable young people I've ever been around. These are certainly the leaders of tomorrow who are making a difference today!....M Selen

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.

My son and I have been a volunteer with Joshua's Heart for over 4 years and as volunteers we have witnessed first hand the dedication and commitment that Joshua and team have put into this non profit foundation in giving back to his community and surrounding communities. It is an honor for my son and I to represent such a wonderful foundation that has put their heart and soul into caring and sharing with those who are in need.

What started out as supporting a golf tournament for Joshua's Heart sponsored by my company, CNLBank, has now affected and transformed my life and the lives of my children. Since my girls have become members of Joshua's Heart Board for 2015-2016, I am constantly amazed at the difference children can make in the lives of the less fortunate. Our involvement with Joshua's Heart has been a life altering experience for us, both individually and as a family, and on different levels. First, we no longer just "talk the talk", we are truly able to "walk the walk". My girls are participating in service to others, something they have always wanted to do and we have found the right organization for that. The meal packaging event allowed the girls to find and develop purpose and meaning to life at an early age. Additionally, they have a deeper appreciation of their lives. They also now feel there is more joy and blessing to give than to receive. The girls are eager to volunteer and cannot wait for the next event. As a parent and a volunteer all I can say is way to go Joshua and Joshua's Heart Foundation, keep doing the great work in the community and changing lives one family at a time.

Outstanding work by Joshua. I'm proud to see the young man he has become and the amazing things he has done and continues to do through the organization. Joshua is definitely a young man with a clear vision of what he wants to accomplish, compassion and perseverance as he continues to provide for the needs of the less fortunate.

I wish to thank the folks from JoshuasHeart Foundation for allowing me to volunteer at last Saturday's Share a Meal Event. For me, the experience was uplifting and humbling at the same time. It is clear JoshuasHeart demonstrates their genuine love for humanity. The energy and enthusiasm of the hard working staff, volunteers and sponsors helping to feed and assist those in need is contagious. This nonprofit has the compassion and empathy that makes a real difference in the lives of those less fortunate; character traits that are sorely lacking in our society. The world could learn a great lesson from these folks.
