Review for Gardner's House Inc, Hartford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Gardner's House is an organization that I have donated my time and money to because the fullness of each donation is used to help Cancer survivors and their families with real needs. This is accomplished soley through fundraising and donations made. Unfortunately, the larger charities do not share their funding or donations with smaller nonprofits like GHI. There is so much more that is needed and can be accomplished if we are willing to just help. Also, Gardner's House founder and CEO Maggie, does not get paid for what she does. She maintains a staff of all volunteers while giving of herself tirelessly. She is on call 24 hours a day and allows anyone in need to reach her by her personal cell phone. (Try reaching Susan G Komen that way. Susan's $599,000/yr salary would be put to great use at GHI!) Those of you who participate in charitable giving through United Way in your workplace, can choose GHI as a place of donation. Please, donate your time and money TODAY!

Review for Gardner's House Inc, Hartford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at Gardner’s House since 2013 and I am still amazed at how it's founder, Maggie Gardner manages to help so many with so little. It is her personal goal to never have to turn anyone who needs help, away. GHI is increasing it's efforts at fundraising, developing community partnerships and overall development in order to establish the best resources for the community it serves. GHI was recently selected by The Doll's House Foundation and awarded a grant to provided resources for families like help with food, rent, medical, healthy eating and advocacy. GHI still provides assistance to those who need it most. Donate and /or Volunteer TODAY!
