Volunteering with Bountiful Blessings has impacted me in many ways. I've learned various new things (such as taking things apart, separating metals, etc). It has also shown me many new ways to give back to the community.
The time I spent here has been nothing but great. I learned a lot about people and the act of giving and helping. I also learned about myself and came across with some new perspective, which was not there before. I am very thankful for this wonderful opportunity.
I absolutely loved the whole experience and I definitely will be back soon. Terry is a wonderful lady and everyone here is so welcoming. I just have to say thank you for having me.
Volunteering with Bountiful Blessings was a great experience. I learned some new helpful life skills, made some great friends, and stayed busy. I would definitely come back!
It has been fun. I'm glad I was able to have some impact in the community. Volunteering has helped me move past my relationship and being able to positively help others. It gave me a new perspective on my life which I'm grateful for.
Volunteering with Bountiful Blessing has truly given me a new view of volunteer / charity work. I love that Bountiful Blessings works with churches and only asks that those who receive give back by volunteering in their church community. When I initially came to volunteer, I was weary but I began to realize how much I enjoyed it. It made me very grateful that I found Bountiful Blessings.
Volunteering here has given me time to reflect on my actions. I have enjoyed my time of giving back with Bountiful Blessings. I was welcomed and not judged for the poor decisions I made. This has helped me move on and strive to be a better person.
I’ve learned how helpful a community can be in their donations to those in need. Terry is one of the kindest & most helpful people I’ve met, giving so much of her time to help others. (Her family too with just the one time I saw them on the scrap day, donating their time cooking for everyone & helping out.)
Besides meeting new people, I’ve started to rediscover my faith & found new ways of coping. I have a better sense of myself and understand now that I really do have a purpose. I’ve learned so many new things that I fully intend to keep using. Not to mention, I love to scrap now thanks to Terry. I loved every moment.
It has been an amazing learning experience. I’ve had a great time and will continue coming back. I will also try to get people to come with me to help or recommend it to anyone who needs to do community service.
Volunteering at Bountiful Blessings has been a blessing. You guys have worked with me with my scheduling due to work and other life situations. It was my pleasure to volunteer at Bountiful Blessings and I appreciated everything you are doing for our community.
Bountiful Blessings had a very positive impact on my life. The volunteers are dedicated to their mission not only in their words but in their actions. I learned a lot about the Heavenly Haulers Ministry and how God provides a path, even when it seems hopeless. Scrapping is a unique and creative approach to generating much needed funds to support the overall ministry to those in need.
Volunteering at Bountiful Blessings has changed the way I look at charity funded programs and organizations. The amount of positive impacts that Bountiful Blessings has on the community is unquantifiable.
Volunteering for Bountiful Blessings was a great experience for me. It taught me many things that I will take with me in life. Knowing that I was helping someone or a family who was less fortunate than I was. Rewarding and wholesome, Terry is genuinely one of the nicest and most wholehearted people I’ve ever met and I was treated with respect and care! It was most definitely worth the time. Five out of five stars. :0)
Bountiful Blessings is a great organization that is involved in helping people and that is how I got a chance to be a part of such a nice initiative. I had a great start the very first day of volunteering and was involved in many tasks that I enjoyed doing. Terry felt like a family member to me and treated me as one of hers. All the people I met at BB gave a great positivity and I got a chance ot help all. This experience gave me a positive and energetic feeling.
Volunteering at Bountiful Blessings was one of the most amazing experiences I've had. Everyone was nice and helpful. It's definitely a place I will be coming back to.

I love volunteering at Bountiful Blessings because it is such a great environment. The people here are so friendly and very caring. I always know that the work will be fun, and people are always around to help if I have any questions.
I learned selfless compassion here. Not only did Terry help me whenever I needed it, but I also watched all the time and effort she had into this organization. It’s something that deeply impacted me for future years to come.
I was able to gain business related knowledge. Definitely a great place to volunteer and help out!
I do not see any room for improvement. I think this is an awesome experience for anyone who would like to come and volunteer.
I loved volunteering here. The people who were here were very nice to me and made me feel at home.
I loved working with Bountiful Blessings! I loved learning about all the different types of metals that were inside each electric device.
The people were great. I enjoyed all of my time. I never volunteered before but now I am going to more often.
Words cannot describe what I have learned during my time here. Never thought I learn the things Bountiful Blessings does for the community and how it impacts everyone it helps. Dedication and caring for others that you see here it's unbelievable. So many positive things I learn and take with me. Thank you for all that you do. I never thought I would experience such amazing things for others. I have learned great and positive little things that really matter in life. Terry, you are an amazing and blessed person. Thank you for your kindness.

Life can come at your fast. When difficult obstacles arise, often times asking someone for help can make you feel like a burden. But I have found through Bountiful Blessings, getting help has never been so rewarding, not only for my family, but for my community as well. I have never been invited into such a warm family whom I've been able to take from and give back to. Like a true family, having someone and something to turn to when I need a hand is refreshing, and that's what I have found through Bountiful Blessings.
First, let me start by saying thank you! Bountiful Blessings was one of the best experiences I have done. During the ARD process, we have certain doubts, wonders and fears about our situation. We wonder why exactly this happened and now what’s going to happen. Obviously there was a reason we had to offend. It was God setting us on a path of something greater, something better and more fulfilling. Meeting Terry and getting her help was such a blessing. We get to learn, share and empathize. I couldn’t imagine giving my time to any other organization. I’ve watched people come in one way and leave another. I just cannot say enough about the comfort and love I feel while doing community service. I love BB and Terry and I will be a family member for a lifetime.
Volunteering at Bountiful Blessings has truly been a blessing. It honestly has been so much help with personal things I have been beating myself up about. It has been an extremely hard year with all of this happening for my daughters and myself. Terry is an amazing person and never made me feel any less than welcome. Meeting others in similar situations made me realize I was not alone, which I felt like I very much was. Taking the time to take things apart and give back to the community has made me truly happy and feel like a better person. The time flew by everyday I was here and the personal “rage” room was always open. The conversations were helpful and useful in my thoughts. Terry’s willingness to help through this journey was an amazing blessing when I needed it the most.
A man who has been coming for a while sat down with me to say that this program was wonderful for so many of them and he really appreciated the help to get some of the things that really add to the budget. He feels it is like a home gathering, people together discussing things that matter to them, doing volunteer time to help others.
I love working for Bountiful Blessings. I receive a great deal of satisfaction by helping others - it makes me feel happy to help my neighbor. I love the people who run the program and all my friends that I've made! It is a true joy for my Wednesdays to come around. The fellowship is grand and the people are great. It makes a person feel good to be of service to others - I find it most rewarding.
Bountiful Blessings offers a hand UP not a hand OUT to people in need within the community of a participating church by requiring that a relatively small amount of time a month be volunteered back to the church. That way, the benefit is mutual between the recipient and the church - they are helping each other, and each retains their respect.
Everyone is nice. This is a great opportunity to serve need-based people. It's an opportunity to go to church and help others in need of a friend. It's a great time to help and support and just to let them know we care.
Pastor Tony is very kind. Helped me many times with paper/hygiene products... Food, rides there. And always had time to listen to concerns.
It has impacted me greatly getting to know Terry and staff has been a delight. Very warm and caring personalities. Also, they have mentored me a great deal.
When Terry asked me to help with a new project called "Bountiful Blessings" - assisting those in need of paper products, soap, etc - I thought it was something I'd be interested in if there was an actual need. But I was sure that this wasn't the case, not in a community on the West Shore (a suburb of Harrisburg).
Was I in for a surprise! When the word got around, people came from miles away for any help they could get - grateful for even the smallest item from a box of soap to a roll of toilet paper. It soon grew to a point that we had to spread into a better location. We then opened a clothing exchange and I began working over there. Once more, the people were so grateful to be able to purchase so much clothing for a single dollar per bag, and all the money went back to Bountiful Blessings for supplies.
I'm not so sure who gets the most out of the few hours a month I spend there. Is it those we help, or me? I'm sure in the long run, it's me! I go home each time tired but happy in the knowledge that I've helped someone less fortunate. I thank God and Terry for this opportunity.
Bountiful Blessings has truly been a blessing to me and a reminder of God's provision. After having leg surgery last year, I found myself unable to work and waiting for short-term disability insurance to begin. Unfortunately, I didn't have any savings and I found myself struggling to pay not only the bills, but household expenses. Bountiful Blessings gave me the household items to supplement the food items donated by my home church, which helped me to use the limited funds I had to pay the necessary insurance payment and medical co-payment bills.
After I recovered from surgery and went back to work, I did not forget the kindness of the people that I met at Bountiful Blessings and soon began to volunteer there. Now, I contribute in my small way to their simple but vital mission, receiving in return a double blessing of new friendships and a chance to help others. It is yet another amazing way that I am truly reminded of God's Bountiful Blessings and love.
