It's Fun To Do Good and Have a Heart 4 Kids in Westminster, CO knows it!
FatCats had the pleasure of visiting with Debbie Smith, a founder of Have a Heart, on September 19th as well as being able to meet with the whole crew of volunteers at their food & clothes bank on September 22nd.
Have a Heart is a non-profit organization who helps families in need of food, clothing, school supplies, and personal hygiene items. Have a Heart was started 22 years ago only helping District 50 and had expanded since then.
Their mission is to give students a better chance at a good education by providing for the basic needs of them and their families.
Have a Heart Project not only helps with food, clothing, school supplies, and other necessities but they also have Spanish to English teaching classes that are held every 2nd and 4th Saturday each month at 8:30 AM. Have a Heart Project also has their Food & Clothing bank open every 2nd and 4th Saturday each month from 7:30 AM to 10:30 AM. They are currently helping over 60 families twice a month.
Everything that is donated to Have a Heart Project goes directly to the recipients and all of their services are free to them.
Future goals for Have a Heart Project are to have enough funds to help everyone and to partner with more churches who share the same values in their communities and to get them involved.
Have a Heart Project has no staff and 25-50 volunteers that help throughout the year. Have a Heart Project is always looking for new volunteers and is looking for younger members to be on board willing to help out their community. Currently, they are looking for more drivers for volunteering during the week. They are looking for more blankets, linings, sheets, diapers, mac-n-cheese, canned corn, tuna soups, and hygiene items.
