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.

Respectfully,

Jennifer Zimmerman

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 greatful for and I wanted to say thank you myself! God Bless Your Organization. ~ D.T.

Dear all at Hannah’s Treasure Chest-

Thank you SO much for setting up the Christmas gifts for the needy family. They truly needed the help and were so excited about it. Her job situation isn’t very secure and she lost a lot of child support from her ex-husband being laid off. Without Hannah’s Treasure Chest they would not have had a Christmas at all.

A month later the kids are still talking about how great Christmas was! She called me on Christmas Day to thank me and have me pass along the message to you all.

I know things aren’t great for them – I hope they’ll be able to use Hannah’s as a resource in the future. Our school community helps them a lot, but there is only so much that we, as individuals, can do for them.

Again – thank you so much – you guys are AWESOME!

Dear Hannah’s Treasure Chest:
Thank you so much for the donation of the beautiful changing table, mattress with sheets, clothing, sipee cups, and diapers to our Emergency Baby Pantry! We needed these items so much & they have helped a number of families! We want you to know how much of a help these donations are here.

The need for help is so great and sometimes our resources don’t meet the demand. That’s why we are so grateful for the generosity of people like you who help make it possible for us to assist God’s precious little ones.

Our baby pantry provides us with the opportunity to show that we care for the life of babies after they are born, as well as before birth. We feel that families in a crisis pregnancy should know there is help for their babies and support for them in this difficult period of their lives. Also, in these uncertain times, some families find themselves temporarily in need and we are there to fill in the gap.

I know you will be blessed for your generosity and we certainly appreciate your donations and giving spirit. Thank you for your commitment to babies and life.

Dear Hannah’s Treasure Chest,
Our clothing drive has drawn to a close for another year and once again it was a huge success. We were able to provide for 235 children from 85 families. This blessing has been quite a testimony to our dedicated volunteers.

The most exciting part of this experience is watching the children’s faces when they get a pair of new shoes. In addition to the children, it was wonderful to see the mothers as they were able to pick up a few items for themselves. The day was full of laughter, joy, hugs and thankful hearts.

This year was definitely made possible because of several partners with this project…Hannah’s Treasure Chest provided numerous bags of children’s clothes.

Your loving generosity opened the door for us to share God’s love with so many people. It was a wonderful opportunity to reinforce that “God is good all the time and all the time God is good.”

Blessings to all.
