Throughout each year, Hosanna receives countless letters and notes from volunteers and clients alike thanking us and sharing their stories. Below are just a few of them.

Volunteers, Friends & Supporters

The staff at Hosanna takes the time to TEACH (volunteer groups) the proper techniques so the work is done correctly and beautifully! The uplifting attitudes and constant praise, as well as the staff’s ability to keep the volunteers moving forward ALWAYS make for a fantastic experience for all involved! And, after witnessing first-hand the impact of the work they do, every member who participated is eager to volunteer again!

This was my first mission trip I attended with Hosanna Industries. It has been a great, rewarding, emotional and powerful experience for me. I have to say all of the Hosanna staff are truly amazing and exceptional in all the work they do, dedicating their time, talent and service to the ministry of helping others.

I have been personally touched and blessed to be a part of “the blitz build.” It is so rewarding to see not only a community coming together to build a home, but also all the time, hard work, dedication and service to this project. It was touching to see all the volunteers who donated their own time, talents, and even food for this project. … Thank you to the Hosanna team for all you do for others. It is truly inspiring!

We have been bringing groups of students to serve with Hosanna Industries for at least 10 years. Although our kids are young, the staff allows them to do real work, like putting on a new roof, hanging dry wall, demo, or hanging insulation. They train and work with our students so well, and our kids experience an amazing sense of accomplishment, as well as being able to help a family in need.

I volunteered with my employer and have to say (it was) one of my favorite experiences! A great organization that helps so many people. And they treat those of us not as savvy with such patient instruction. You learn so much.

– Employee Volunteer

I learned what it sincerely means to be an adult. I learned to interact with people of all ages, genders, and from all over. I learned how the smallest act of kindness can be the difference in someone’s life. I learned that a great gift to people is giving them someone who listens. Most importantly, I learned more about myself this summer than I have at any other point in my life. The gifts Hosanna and its amazing staff gave are incomparable to anything else I’ve ever been given.

We would like to thank you for making our house a home. We’ve gotten more compliments than I can count. Your organization gives an affirmation that people care about people.

We cannot put into words strong enough to thank you wonderful people for all your kindness and help during a real bad time. It was very comforting to know that in this day and age there are people like you who care about others. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done for us. You will always be remembered in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and yours.

Thank you all for being there for me in my time of need. You not only worked hard, but you showed me love (the love of Jesus)! Thank God for you all. Every time I look at the work that was done at my home, my heart gets filled with joy and happy tears. May the Lord bless you all abundantly.

Thank you so much for repairing our roof. It was nice not having to hold my breath and pray at the same time when it rained yesterday.

Your group is so inspirational; you should be very proud of the work that you do. The young people who worked on my parent’s house have restored my faith in young people today.

I was not prepared for seeing all the trucks, vans and cars that pulled up to my mother’s house. I have never seen a mission group work together, except in pictures from our church mission groups. Pictures don’t tell it as well as experiencing it. We truly feel blessed by what we witnessed. What an energetic, hardworking, well-mannered bunch of adults and teens that seemed to be enjoying themselves at the same time.
