Read a few of our volunteer stories to hear what we’re about!
Hands of Charity has been a life changer for our family. Five years ago, we were searching for a charity to be involved with, and we were referred to Hands of Charity. At first, our kids were not sure they wanted to give up their Christmas and donate their funds and time to serve the people of Northern Mexico. Since that first experience, they refuse to give it up. The impact on our family has been significant, and hopefully we have made the lives of others better through our involvement with Hands of Charity.
We really wanted to be involved with an organization that not only gave immediate help to those in need, but also provided tools to improve the standard of living over the long-term. Through Hands of Charity, we have been able to help provide the basic necessities of life, including shelter, food, clothing, as well as life skills to improve their lives.
From a personal standpoint, we have built incredible relationships with the wonderful people around Puerto Penasco. They are a humble people that have a great need. We have seen them experience the joy of living in a real home, the excitement of learning how to sew their own clothes, and the relief to know that they won’t go hungry.
We can tell you from firsthand experience that 100% of the donations to Hands of Charity go directly to help the people of Northern Mexico. If you are looking to support an organization that is doing some real good without any overhead, and that has pure motives, we would highly recommend Hands of Charity.
Craig and Julie Hendricks, VolunteersGoing to Mexico to do charity work changed my life. The people who live in Puerto Penasco are really poor, but so happy and thankful for all they have. It made me realize how blessed I am and how I need to be more grateful everyday for the little things in life.Brynn, Volunteer
