Please read some of our many testimonials:
A donation by Martha's Cupboard was praised by Flora at Central Church 8/27/17. See her statement below.
"Thank you for providing hygiene bags for the Mental Health Court. These basic necessities they contain are very helpful to our participants who are obtaining housing at Oxford Houses or subsidized housing. We appreciate your support.” - The Mental Health Court Staff
"I just want to share a personal testimony regarding the Martha’s cupboard bags. These bags are golden to many of our families and they are so very appreciative to receive them. I know for my families that receive them make a dramatic difference in how they’re able to budget for the month and they provide them with a sense of relief. Thank you all for everything you do to serve our community!!" - Linda V., Site Coordinator, Communities In Schools
"Thank you for all you do! I most recently heard that there was a family member who shed tears of thankfulness for a bag they received. Please know that the personal care bags you assemble are touching many lives. Thank you for your faithfulness in ensuring Pasco School District receives bags each month!" - Loraine L., Pasco School District
"World Relief Tri-Cities assists new refugees who have fled persecution or the fear of persecution. Each year, a small number of refugees world-wide are given the opportunity to legally come to the United States and start new lives free of fear and oppression. Martha's Cupboard partners with us to provide much needed help for the new refugees through a large basket of hygiene and household items and a backpack with school supplies for each new child. The items are placed in the apartment before the arrival of the family so that they have access to them immediately. Having basics like shampoo, deodorant and other urgently needed items ready for them is an important part of welcoming them and enabling them to start their new lives here with dignity. Until Martha's Cupboard started helping each new refugee child with a backpack, the children were starting school in a strange new country with the extra stress for the parents and embarrassment for the child of not having the basics for school. Because of Martha's Cupboard, each new child can enter the classroom ready to learn and thrive." - Scott M., World Relief Tri-Cities
"I just wanted to thank you and all your volunteers who work tirelessly assembling the Martha's Cupboard personal hygiene bags for those in need. The Red Cross has been partnering with you for several years, providing bags to victims in our community who have lost their belongings in house fires. These bags, full of toiletries, cleaning products, and other essentials are such a blessing to those receiving them and you all are to be commended on this wonderful service to the community."
- Kimba O., Disaster Action Team Coordinator, Central and Southeastern Washington Chapter of the American Red Cross
