To whom it may concern:

It is a pleasure to write this letter of support for Hannah’s Treasure Chest (HTC).  HTC has been a partner and friend for over 5 years helping us assist parents who are in poverty and under-resourced.  With their help we are able to meet the basic needs of our parents, ensuring children have adequate clothing, a warm coat, or a safe car seat.  When we remove the immediate need of a mom or dad they can better focus on the work that needs to be done, and we can meet our goal of helping them achieve self-sufficiency.  HTC partners with us to make sure that’s being done.

Hannah’s Treasure Chest’s services are exemplary and what really adds value to their work is their quality customer service.  Their staff and volunteers are very professional and courteous.  They understand our work and demonstrate compassion in all they do.

They are a tremendous asset to the area and they are second to none in the service and resources they provide.

Hannah’s Treasure Chest has been a valuable resource to our Early Childhood Programs at the Butler County Educational Service Center. Since the majority of our families are living off of a limited income, Hannah’s Treasure Chest has been able to provide items such as; clothing, strollers, high chairs, toys, books, etc. These are items that our families can’t normally afford on their own. In some situations, Hannah’s Treasure Chest has been able to provide items for birthday gifts and Christmas presents.  Their generosity gives these families a great support system that they can rely on.

We appreciate all the help and support that Hannah’s Treasure Chest has provided for families in Butler County.

I can’t thank you enough for the incredible care package I received for my daughter. Like every parent, I want more than anything to give my child a life that is filled with both comfort and happiness, and because of Hannah’s Treasure Chest, doing that is just a little bit easier. I was shocked by the number of adorable clothes we received to guarantee she stays warm throughout the rest of the winter and by the number of dog-themed toys and books that had been picked out for her. Thank you again for helping me to bring a little more comfort and happiness into my little girl’s face.

Good Morning–Just a note to thank you so very much for helping a displaced family that attends the Miami Valley Child Development Centers’ MET center. I placed a request last week and a co-worker picked it up yesterday. I will deliver the bags today. I know that mom will be very grateful, as I am. I really appreciate all that Hannah’s Treasure Chest does to help the families and I know that you all work very hard. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!!! Cindy Sampson

I heard about HTC long before I ever donated.  One day I made it my mission to find them.  I stopped in and explained that I had heard about them for years but never knew where they were located.  I was graciously given the grand tour and have been donating ever since.  I even shop the sales racks for items that HTC needs!  It is a great organization that impressed me on my impromptu visit! Congratulations to the staff and volunteers for all the work they do for the greater Dayton community.

I just wanted to thank you and Sue for partnering with us for Global Youth Service Day on Saturday.  The youth had a wonderful time.  They were able to catch the vision of your facility and came away feeling the beauty of what you do to help others.  They could see the way you enrich the lives of the children in our community.  They were so touched by the miracles that Sue shared.  All four of my daughters were there and they loved being able to serve and can’t wait to return.  Thank you for making this wonderful experience possible for them and the other youth that attended.

Thank you note from a clientDear Hannah’s Treasure Chest,

Thank you so much for the cute baby clothes, blankets and bear/book that were ordered through Incarnation Church. I greatly appreciate it, and will put the items to good use!



Hello Hannah’s Volunteers!

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for all the work you do! 🙂

This morning I delivered a bed and two bags of clothes, books and toys to a single mother who just adopted a son who was born with drugs in his system. She is very brave taking on his special needs, and she was in tears as I started unloading the bed frame and mattress out of the car. She was so excited to see the clothes and games, and grateful that her new son would finally have socks that fit, pants without holes, and his own bed to sleep in at night.

Words cannot adequately articulate how touched this mother was and how joyful she felt for the first time in months, all thanks to your efforts. She constantly tells me how her new son has given her motivation to reach her goals, follow through with her plans and be the best person she can be so he does not have to grow up in an environment of drugs and alcohol. She is doing a wonderful job with him as we work on parenting, and I can see a bright future for both of them.

Thank you for giving them the resources necessary for a happy start together. You consistently do a great job with my families, and I hope you each take some time to be proud of the good work you do. It takes a very giving soul to thanklessly volunteer your efforts, and it does not go unappreciated!

Thanks again, and I hope to see you all soon! 🙂

Hannah’s Treasure Chest is an invaluable resource for the clients of Homefull and their families.  Many of Homefull’s clients are living with limited or no income, and providing for basic needs can often be difficult.  This situation is especially true when a family experiences an unstable housing situation; as all resources must be used to focus on stable housing.  As a result, the individual needs of family members are set aside to use all financial resources for housing stabilization.  Homefull serves many children who are often without age appropriate books or toys because parents simply do not have the resources to provide them.

Hannah’s Treasure Chest provides the resources for parents to access necessary, and often expensive, items- such as clothing, toys, books and safe children’s furniture.  Hannah’s Treasure Chest allows parents to meet the needs of each child while continuing to work toward stable housing for the family.  This opportunity significantly impacts the growth and development of the child. They gain safety and security from stable housing, as well as a individuality and importance for having their own needs met. 

Hannah’s Treasure Chest is a fantastic organization that provides quality, reliable services to the families and children of Montgomery County, Ohio. Thank you for all you do!

I wanted to personally say thank you for the items you gave my 2 yr old daughter. We had lost everything when we moved into a bed bug infested house. My daughter didn’t have any clothes or a bed. The items you gave us we are so grateful for and I wanted to say thank you myself! God Bless Your Organization. ~ D.T.
