What Volunteers Are Saying
Volunteering at HEART has been a wonderful experience for my family. I know that my children are in a safe environment surrounded by good influences while they contribute to a truly worthwhile organization. We’ve met an amazing group of people, learned so much and have taken back so much more than we’ve given. We LOVE volunteering at HEART!
HEART is the best place you could volunteer. I help with anything that has to do with tools, and let me tell you, their tool shed has any tool you could imagine. You could build anything you wanted there. One of my favorite jobs was putting up a fence for the goats.
I love volunteering at HEART! I love everyone there and enjoy working in the garden. If I could, I’d go there every day!
I love being at HEART. The people there are so nice and welcoming; they’re fun to be around. I’ve driven ATVs there, collected firewood and have helped with things in the kitchen.
