It was a wonderful experience volunteering with Joshua's Heart Share A Meal. I love how the children had an opportunity to get involved and give back to the community. Families received a Christmas grocery bag, wrapped gifts for the children, books, picture with Santa and we served the families dinner. I look forward to that awesome experience again. Seeing how pleased those families were was a blessing in itself. Our holiday spirit has been fulfilled through Joshua's Heart.

Joshua William's is a young man with compassion for helping other's beyond any young person I have ever met. His tenacity with Joshua's Heart Foundation to "Stomp out Hunger" is the drive and motivation for the foundation.

Joshuas's Heart Foundation ensures that the community in South Florida has food for their families. I have volunteered on several occasions and when I see the determination in Joshua's eyes giving food to the less fortunate brings me to tears. This is a young man with a Foundation that strives to take on "Stomping out Hunger" around the World. I pray to see the day when Joshua's Heart Foundation can receive an endowment to feed more people around the World.

I started doing some charity events with Joshua's heart about 1.5 years ago. I was trying to find a local charity that gave back to the community and I could be hands on with. I found them online and liked what I read about their vision. When doing the events you get to feel the gratefulness of the individuals and families receiving from Joshua's heart. I have met some wonderful people and children helping out here. They are the BEST charity I have ever worked by far! I am proud of the work Joshua's heart does in Miami and beyond. The kids who work side by side are pretty amazing. It's a joy to see so many young kids wanting to do good for others. Joshua and his vision are a great inspiration to me and reminds me what happens when you have love in your heart!

Our lives are enriched by our involvement with JHF. It is an honor to know Joshua (abd his mother Claudia), and I encourage anyone to join in their efforts to help others, at least once and you will become a regular. Incredibly organized events and a focus on the needy that drives their success. Congratulations Joshua, you are a hero and an inspiration.

Joshua's Heart is a life changing organization. It not only changes lives for those in need, but also for those who volunteer. Joshua is a forward thinking youth trying to make a difference in our society while teaching other youngsters to do the same. He is an excellent role model.

Joshua's Heart Foundation continues to shine as a beacon to light a path of hope where there seems to be none. It serves as a place of redemption for those like me who did not know how to say thank you or to give back for what had been given to them. It is a place to serve and not worry about being served. I pray that they are able to continue this wonderful ministry for as long as there are folk in need and that there are folk willing to answer the call to be a part of this wonderful blessing to and for others. Joshua's Heart Foundation, a great organization with one great mission - to help others.

Our company works with joshuas heart foundation in their backpack program and with other donation projects. It is incredible the lives that they touch and all the people they help within our community. Helping with this foundation has made us as individuals reflect on our own lives and see how we can give back and improve our daily life. It is an absolute honor to be able to work with such a great organization.

For many years I've volunteered with Joshua's Heart through the AT&T Pioneers and Community NETwork, an AT&T Employee Resource Group. It makes me feel good that we share the value of giving back to others. Not only do we volunteer with them, we host food collections to help their efforts! They truly believe in the words of Winston Churchill, "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give."

I've had opportunity to see Joshua working alongside the kids on his board. i've also visited with some families who have been encouraged and helped by JHF. Joshua and the Foundation set a great example to all of us that we can make a difference in the world right where we are. I love that Joshua encourages kids to take an active role in changing their world and he leads by example.

I believe that God has provided the earth with all the resources to feed everyone who live on it, but that’s not what’s happening today. Being a part of Joshua’s Heart Foundation allow me to see so many families and children who are not able to get food. I became a part of Joshua’s Heart Foundation when I was 14 years old and I am so very proud of this Foundation, we’re working to truly “stomp out hunger”. My participation with so many other volunteers working along with Joshua himself to distribute food to those in need has helped me gain greater insights to the dedication and commitment of everyone who is a part of the foundation. Thank you Joshua.

I am writing this personal testimony for Joshua Williams and the team behind the Joshua’s Heart Foundation, in hopes to give greater insight to his dedication and the team’s commitment to their mission. I have had the honor and privilege to work with Joshua in several projects over the years. As a young man he possesses the diplomacy, communication skills and professionalism of a true leader. The Joshua’s Heart Foundation has been at the forefront of feeding those in need and setting leadership examples to young philanthropists in South Florida. Joshua is an extremely bright young man and a true “people person”; his energetic personality and love for giving back is totality contagious!
If you have the opportunity to work in any capacity with Joshua Williams and the team behind the Joshua’s Heart Foundation I highly suggest you take it, for he is one of the true philanthropists that will change the world.

I recently participated in a food distribution sponsored by Joshua Heart Foundation on 1/20/2014. I would like to say THANK YOU to Joshua's Heart Foundation for the huge help it gave to my family. I live in the Little Haiti Community and my family has been going through some difficult financial issues. The boxes of food that I received was just in time. Whomever packed those boxes were thinking about families like mine. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing for my family and countless others who otherwise would go hungry. This a great organization and I wish you much success as you help other families.

After the event on January 20th , I sat for a while in my living room and reflected on the day's events. I could still see the radiant smiles, hear the deep gratitude of "thank yous",the joyful chattering of families as they briskly walked to their cars .I asked myself the question," What could we as a community do to say thank you ,or to show our appreciation to such a Stellar organization who have made such a tremendous difference in so many, many, lives ?"The many hundreds of families that were present at the feeding are the testimonials that Joshua's Heart have resuscitated many lives.

I was very honored to share in this community event with an organization who went the extra mile to show that they CARED ENOUGH TO SHARE!
