This charity is great. It helps its members of the community in more ways than one. Individuals seeking help in many ways can come to this page and find free help and also get help full info to help them get the help that they need outside of free items whether it be rent, food, living situations, transportation help, etc. The community comes together to help one another.

Im so grateful for the heart of giving site. It has helped me and I appreciate every blessing that I have received. There are still some good people in the world, even in the midst of all thats going on in the world today. Ms Amy Jones, I personally want to say Thank You for inspiring myself and others to have the heart of giving. This site is really wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone who is in need or would like to give their unwanted blessings to someone else. Small or big, you never know where Gods blessings will come from or how it can affect another persons life when you give. Thanks again Ms Jones. I have nothing but respect for you and God bless.

Heart of Giving has been a blessing to the Greater Virginia Peninsula Homelessness Consortium and it is a great partnership that has been established for years now. Whenever we reach out the Heart Of Giving , they do not hesitate to help.

Thank you for all that you do!

Nothing warms my heart more than being able to help my fellow community brother or sister in their time of need. If I have it....and you need it....it's yours. If its assistance that you need and I can do it....it's done. I receive my blessings by giving cheerfully. Ive have also grown to know that the more you give.... The more He gives to you....I will NEVER stop giving Because the more I give the more I receive.

You know how they say that humanity is lost and there are no good people left in the world.... This couldn't be farther from the truth in HOG (The Heart of Giving). They work so hard to bless the community. I have been bless along with others I know. There moderators work hard to make sure people follow the rules... May I... is used when asking for a blessing, and we all should be polite when asking for something. THANK YOU HOG & AMY!

Amy Jones and Heather Reeves are God sent angels. I would not be where I am today had it not been for these ladies. When I met them my family and I were living out of our car. These ladies invited me to church, loved on me, made me comfortable, and helped me as much as they could to make sure we had a home, jobs, furniture, food, clothes,ect. The world definitely needs more Amy Jones's.

Unbelievable, we had some pay issues and needed a little help putting groceries in the house for our 3 boys. The stress was crushing us feeling hopeless. We prayed and were guided to ask for help, not something easy to do. We recieved way more than we could have dreamed of. We are so greatful for everything we have been given. There are so many wonderful people willing to help out. This is an amazing group, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Almost three years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Amy Jones when I was in need. I had to stop working to take care of my daughter and home school my autistic son. This had put a strain on our family's finances, but God always provides! I started to volunteer with the organization, because I felt compelled to help others like I have been helped. I now use the skills I learned (working over all those years) to provide resources, advice, and encouragement to those who face homelessness. I have watched the organization grow from 25,000 members to over 70,000 in a matter of years! Our members are my friends, the volunteers are my family. I couldn't imagine my life without them.

My family have been both blessed by others and had been a blessing to others through this group. I have been a member of this group since the very beginning and I have seen countless blessings from every aspect of life, from food to furniture. The Heart of Giving deserves recognition for having such an impact in families lives such as mines and countless other in the community!

I have benefitted by both giving to others and by receiving blessings throughout Heart of Giving. Amy helped me give away 50 dozen donuts , and by happy blessing also helped me replace my then-broken washing machine. God gives and blesses as we bless others and Amy and Heart of Giving have provided a tangible way to see that in action every day.

The Heart of Giving has changed my life. This organization has actually saved my life. Before I started volunteering I felt as though I had no purpose in life. When I joined my eyes were opened. I saw where my purpose was suppose to be, to help people in need. The Heart of giving has shown me exactly where I should be in life. I love life now and the family we have become. It has restored my faith.

When I lost my job because of a shoulder injury this group helped me find resources to keep my family going through the 5 months it took before I could find a job that would allow me to work with a weight restriction especially through Christmas when I thought my two girls weren't going to have anything. And Amy even made it possible for moms to get a little something to feel special too.

I joined The Heart of Giving a few months ago when I was trying to help a friend, who was in desperate need of clothing for a new job. The response was nothing short of amazing. People were donating clothing, shoes and offering kind words. A few weeks later, as I was preparing for a new baby, I started to clean out some of my kitchen cabinets. I had a glass cookware set that I hadn’t used in a while. I asked my daughter to just throw it out but as she started walking towards the door I remembered about the Heart of Giving. I listed the set on the site and the next morning a young woman picked it up. She messaged me to thank me and told me she would be using it to cook dinner for her family that evening. The feeling that I helped someone provide food to their family, was so rewarding. And to think I was just going to throw it out!! Over the next few weeks I continued to list items around the house that we hadn’t used in a while. Not only was I getting rid of things that were taking up much needed space in my home but I was helping people while doing it! It was a great feeling. During this time, I was also blessed with amazing items for my newborn son that I might not otherwise be able to obtain. The site is run very well. The admins are amazing at keeping everything in order and ensuring that people are respectful and fair, which is a nice change from other groups. God is an awesome God who is always on time and I can’t imagine if I wasn’t introduced to The Heart of Giving when I was! It truely has changed my life for the good and I’ve met some pretty amazing people along the way!

I've been a part of this organization for approximately 1 year. In that short time the membership doubled in my area! I'm thrilled to be associated with an organization where giving in love is the core! As a member I don't have to wonder if my contribution will reach the recipient. I'm able to bless people in person. Therefore I know I'm truly helping my community. I've made many new friendships! To witness a homeless mother transition into her new house and make it a home off the blessings this group provided, truly warms my heart. Then to have that same person give back to the group is an even bigger blessing. Examples like these prove that if each one, reach one, we will reach and bless many ! This group has reaffirmed for me, that good people really are among us! The leaders of this group truly lead by example! I pray daily for their strength and I do hope that the community do not take this fine group for granted!

Wow where do I start, this site has provided not only my family with items needed, but I have been able to claim things and be blessed to be able to help many friends and family in need, when my family went through some devastating times, this community pulled together and really helped out, more than being blessed I have been able to pay it forward, when I was raising my boys, I was blessed so many times, I am thankful I am now in the position to be able to help out some, and it feels good to have the opportunity to be able to pay it forward. Thank you Amy, Christina, Tiffany to name a few for the blessings and the opportunity. May God continue to bless you and and all of HOG.

I began my journey with The Heart of Giving 2 years ago. My family and I have been struggling with loss and depression for many years and financial ruin to top it off. Because of this amazing group of people we have been able to help our children have school clothes, our pets to remain home with us, my neighbors to thrive, and to top it off thanks to our amazing Presidents reach, I was able to become employed after being a stay at home mom for 5 years. Ive forever grateful for everyones love, prayers, and support over these last 2 years.

I began serving with The Heart of Giving about 1.5yrs ago. Not only had working with this group provided my family with valuable resources when a need has arisen, but I have also made valuable friendships. My life has been enriched through the opportunities to reach out to my community and make an impact on the people who live here. Every time I serve during an event or workday I come away changed, always for the the better.
