One of the very best organized, most meaningful volunteer experiences I have ever had, not to mention my children. I am so very impressed with the quality, quantity and organization of volunteer opportunities. Thank you to LHH for exposing our children to community service in such a perfect way.
We just started volunteering with LHH and it was a great experience! Well organized and fun. I'm very happy to have this opportunity to volunteer with my kids.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Little Helping Hands! Our family has been volunteering with LHH for three years now and it has been a wonderful way for us to show our son how important it is to us to give back to our community and instill that value in him! He REALLY enjoys every activity (which are extremely well organized) and our volunteer opportunities have generated some great conversations and given him a better understanding/appreciation of many non profit organizations in our area.
LHH has been great to work with. We have worked at Goodwill's Electronic Recycling center a couple of times. I think the 1 1/2 hour time is just right for this age, and LHH is great about making it an enjoyable experience, from being friendly, informative and helpful, to having snacks and drinks at the end to take on our way out.
My only complaint is that it is very difficult to catch an open spot. The spots fill up immediately. My hope for the future would be LHH growing and offering more opportunities. It is possible to get first-pick if you donate money to LHH, but the required donation amount is too high for me. While I can see their logic on generating donations that way, it feels like paying for the privilege of donating my (and my kids') time. It's not necessarily a bad way to go as a strategy, but something about it feels off-putting, and perhaps it could be done in a better way.
Mainly, I just wish we could volunteer with LHH much more often than we are able to. If I happen to be at my computer when the calendar is sent out for the next month, I can get us signed up before it is full, but if I am not... we're out of luck. It's probably been nearly a year since we started with LHH, and we have only worked twice.
Hi, Jennifer! Thanks for taking the time to complete a review on us. I'm glad you've enjoyed joining our group over at Goodwill GreenWorks. We recognize that our demand is higher than supply and hope that as our nonprofit grows, so will our opportunities. I encourage you to get on our waiting list for any of our activities that you are most interested in and to also check our calendar periodically throughout the month. The spots do fill fast once we post the monthly calendar, but almost every week, spots do open up. Marissa Vogel ~ Founder & Executive Director
I cannot begin to explain how wonderful LHH is for our family. It used to be hard finding a way for my 3 children to volunteer and give back to the community but with LHH it's been so simple. Thank you for making volunteering something my children love and look forward to doing!
Little Helping Hands is a fabulous organization that helps teach children the importance and benefits of volunteering in their community. Volunteer activities are well planned and just the right length for children.
Little Helping Hands is an awesome organization that does so much in getting kids involved at a young age in the community. There are so few charities that allow kids to volunteer and LHH really helps to fill that need. My daughter and I started volunteering with them about 3 years ago when she was 4 years old, she is now almost 7 and still loves the projects. I would highly recommend their programs to anyone with children from 3 years and up. Great people!

What better way to teach your children the importance of volunteering in their community than by standing next to them as they do! I love this organization for the great opportunities they have provided my family to make our city a better place to live.
