From our humble beginnings…

…in a Starbucks coffee shop in 2001, to our close to 2,000 member base today, the volunteer organization From the Heart continues its charitable mission.

From the Heart is involved in numerous projects, from making chemo hats for local cancer centers, preemie baby hats for the tiniest of our recipients, sleeping bags and warm mitten sets for the homeless in the Richmond community.

From the Heart volunteers are constantly finding new opportunities to help, and encourage anyone who knows of an unmet need in the community to please bring it to our attention.

We invite anyone interested in joining our cause to join us by email, web site, or check the latest newsletter for our schedule and just show up!
