Thanksgiving Week 2013 - Aching muscles, drenched clothing…and warm spirits…

Date: November 27, 2013
From Monday morning to Wednesday morning, the amazing team of BHH staff and volunteers distributed 1250 turkeys and baskets to local families. Those with tickets came on Monday and Tuesday to receive their baskets and turkeys. On Monday, while all this activity was going on across the street at the Annex, our staff and volunteers in the main facility were handling an overflow crowd. On Monday morning alone, they passed out over 340 pantry bags of groceries…a new one day record at BHH! Tuesday brought more of the same. This morning, at 6:45 A.M. in a cold, drenching rain, Bill Harper, Deanna Duke, Natalie Warren, Maureen Cavallaro and volunteers from Lexis-Nexis and F.A.U. were on hand to distribute the remaining turkeys and baskets on a “first come-first served” basis. In the pouring rain and in the darkness of a Wednesday morning, a steady stream of cars lined up to receive a Thanksgiving Turkey and Basket.

Date: October 4, 2013
Any team can work hard for a year and win a championship once. Maybe some can do it twice. A precious few will even “three-peat.” But when a team achieves the highest standard for eight consecutive years, it’s time to acknowledge an organization that is committed to excellence. This week, Charity Navigator, an independent auditor of non-profit organizations bestowed its highest rating (Four Stars) on Boca Helping Hands. A “Four Star Rating” means that Boca Helping Hands uses its contributions in an efficient, appropriate and ethical manner. It furthermore acknowledges that Boca Helping Hands adheres to the highest standards of organizational governance, accountability and transparency. In short, it means that a contributor can have complete confidence that his/her donation will be used to help people...and not have the bulk of the donation go to overhead and expenses. Here is a passage from the Announcement Letter from Charity Navigator:

The High Score trophy was also a tie and the two winners were Lisa Baruch from Wyndam Deerfield Beach Resort and Ralph Patora from Solid Rock Christian Church.
