Minnie’s Food Pantry

Plano, TX

Minnie’s Food Pantry’s mission is to provide free healthy meals and red-carpet treatment to every person that they serve.

I started volunteering at Minnie’s during the pandemic and I have loved and enjoyed the experience. I was made to feel as if I was a part of the family. The staff is loving and caring and has a wonderful team with big hearts!

Happy children helped by A Broader View of Volunteers

A Broader View Volunteers

Elkins Park, PA

A Broader View Volunteers was founded in 2007 with a love for humankind, and a motivated spirit to help others. It was created on the belief that one person can make a difference in the lives of others through meaningful service-learning volunteer work.

My trip to Costa Rica with A Broader View was probably one of the best experiences of my life. Just like everyone would be if they came to a foreign country alone, I was nervous that something would go wrong or I would find the experience too difficult. With the support of the coordinator, her family, ABV in America, my volunteer location, and the people of Costa Rica, I was the happiest person ever. I got to volunteer as well as learn the unique history of Escazú, Costa Rica, and the local people. The U.S. and Costa Rica have so many differences, but by coming to Escazú I have a new appreciation for happiness. Seeing the kids of the kindergarten come to school with big smiles on their faces reminded me that happiness isn’t based on the things that you have, but rather what you make of it!

Glasswing International USA

New York City, NY

Glasswing International is an innovative nonprofit that addresses the root causes of poverty and violence through education, health, and community empowerment.

Glasswing is an extraordinary organization through which all committed citizens can support the education of children. I recently joined the clubs, and I am motivated, fascinated, and more committed to continuing to help others. That is due to the cooperation, equal treatment, and hard work that characterized all Glasswing members. Excellent!
