Review for Children's Hunger Fund, Sylmar, CA, USA
We were introduced to Children's Hunger Fund in 2002. At that time the charity was 10 years old. After hearing the Founder/President, Dave Phillips at an event he was addressing for the first time, we did our due diligence and not only researched to find out the efficiency of the organization but also wanted to know the effectiveness of the programs. It is now almost 10 years later and we remain loyal donors, supporters and friends to Children's Hunger Fund. It's one thing to know that a charity takes stewardship of the financial donations seriously, but also very rewarding to know that those donations are being put to effective programs that bring about change in the life of the family on the recipient side.
The need is great, the ability for a charity to reach many depends upon a program (such as the one at CHF) that partners with the local church in order to engage an army of like-stewards to reach those families in their zip code area; build the relationship; then assist the family in moving out of what got them into their predicament in the first place. It's not about a box of food, but the effective and continual change that affects and entire neighborhood, community and yes, even the nation.
Thank you Children's Hunger Fund for remaining within God's Will as you project the Vision of CHF to the donors/staff/prospective donors and staff.
