I?ve volunteered for Help Me Help You and would highly recommend assisting this organization with their efforts. Help me Help You is a great organization dedicated to helping individuals in need in communities. Help Me Help You is truly one of the rare organizations who live up to their prescribed standards, while assisting those in need, serving with compassion, a nonjudgmental attitude, and restoration of one?s dignity. My heart was truly touched with the compassion of this organization; those who can and are able to assist are encouraged to do so.
