My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for My Body and Soul, League City, TX, USA
MBS is an organization dedicated to serve with love and compassion our brothers and sisters in need. I have had the honor to volunteer at this place during 2 different seasons and be a witness of God's grace and blessings. The group of people who work there have an incomparable devotion to those who are struggling and in need of help. MBS is a cleaning and personal hygiene supplies pantry, but that's I believe the least of what they offer to every person who steps into their modest building. Each person is treated like family, kids are given toys, clothes and books, families are asked about any special needs they might be having. I was there during Hurricane Harvey, and know of the great efforts this organization made to provide with clothes, furniture, cleaning supplies and other needs of many of their clients who had lost it all. I know of their special Back To School and Christmas Campaigns each year, where everybody works extra to satisfy the volunteer needs of those campaigns and also the regular operations of the pantry. Long hours of hard work and outrageous coordinating efforts are made during those times, but always in faith that God is in charge... and yes He is! Each campaign comes with the reward of thankful clients and the unbreakable cohesiveness that only love and the grace of God can create in our communities. But what MBS gives goes beyond material objects, which we all human beings need to live and survive. It goes beyond the smile they receive you with and the tender hug they say: 'Goodbye! We will see you next time!' MBS volunteers make sure before clients leave, that they have listened to their clients' stories, to what is in their hearts, sometimes sad experiences, sometimes joyful ones, so that together they can pray to and praise the Lord, to thank for His gifts, and goodness, and also to ask for his grace, peace and comfort in times of trouble. MBS strives to sincerely connect with the people in need in their community; I have seen their clients know MBS truly cares, and because of this be reassured there is a God that will always provide for their children, for humanity.
I feel blessed to have been there, and I thank God for MBS and the beautiful souls that work there. God bless their hearts!
Here I am attaching a couple of pictures of the 2017 school campaign.
