The Giving Heart
By: Stephanie Garcia
The Giving Heart is a nonprofit organization that was originally found on the year of 2003, that helps the community by offering food to the Richmond Area. This association includes food and fellowship for the homeless, or those in need to food to eat. The giving heart has an annual "Secret seniors valentine bags", that gives bags full of items that the homeless needs. These bags can include, toiletries, blankets, clothing ect. This year you can volunteer to help people that need these items. This organization lasts through February eighth, for information on volunteering you can go on they're newsletter. One of the other activities this society does is a thanksgiving feast. It takes place on Thanksgiving, and it is to feed the homeless, and those who can not afford a nice dinner. Aside from all these events, the Giving Heart has smaller get together's all year around. The Giving heart association has been helping the people that are in need since 2010. It has not been many years, but they have done so much to help the community. They are mainly successful because of the lot of people that help out the Giving Heart. One of the greatest helping center in Richmond is the Giving Heart. They do more than help out the homeless. This association provides entertainment to each event that brings the objects that the homeless are not fortunate to own. Many people wake up in the morning on a bed, and eat breakfast. With the help of the people at The giving Heart, and the communities volunteers, we can help those that need what we are fortunate to have at our disposable. The people that receive what we give, will surely be grateful and appreciative. Volunteering is not as boring as you probably thought it was. It actually gives you a chance to meet really nice people, who are just unfortunate. Many volunteers rage about how much the enjoyed volunteering at all kinds of different events.
