Review for My Body and Soul, League City, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It's nothing short of awesome to watch My Body and Soul and its dedicated volunteers at work. In August, school supplies were provided for almost 500 children! Most people do not realize that basic necessities such as school supplies and personal care items can't be obtained with the Lone Star Card (nutrition assistance funds) making the unserved need huge. Providing these types of resources to help children succeed in school is just one of the many ways MBS changes lives.

Review for My Body and Soul, League City, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer for My Body and Soul because it changes lives, and that’s not a platitude. It really does – both the clients and the volunteers alike. The items provided to the clients are important, however the volunteers listening to and getting to know them is what really makes a difference. The power of a smiling face letting them know that they matter is awesome. I can’t imagine how difficult life must be for many of the clients. Imagine having to ask someone for toilet paper or having to send you child to school in dirty clothes because you couldn't afford laundry detergent – or how difficult it would be to learn if you were that child. Helping people with these sorts of basic needs that are often not available to them anyplace else and giving them a place to talk about their problems is such a simple way to make a big difference.
