“They had a need for volunteers so we helped initiate that to bring everyone together,” said Mickell Faquir, I Heart Bryans director of volunteer services. “We have all walks of life in here that are sanding building beds, building all the key components to make a bed for a child.”

Faquir said I Heart to Help’s mission is to bring residents together and address volunteer needs in our community.

I Heart to Help will be holding future volunteer initiatives with other nonprofits. To get involved click here.
