Paula – “Just got back from another Backyard Humanitarian volunteer opportunity. We sorted, washed, dried and packed up 196 coats for the homeless and people in need of warm winter coats. And while doing so, old friends were reacquainted, new friends were made and some of us caught up. But best of all, more opportunities were discussed. I'm proud to be a Backyard Humanitarian!
Gus – “I went there to help those who are in need and instead they ended up helping me remember what’s really important in life. Wow, I never knew that the one in need was me! Thank you.
Mike- “What a great feeling after helping out for an hour out of my day!”
Leah – “Such a great group, it was a great feeling to be apart of the coat sort and know that these coats go right to the people in need.”
Susan -" It was such an amazing feeling to be able to donate coats to Backyard Humanitarian! I have been blessed with so much, and to give back to those in need in the City I love is indescribable."
Cindy – “I dropped off coats today. Thanks to the good Samaritans of Stamford who wanted to help others stay warm this winter!”

"A huge thank you to Angela Malizia and Backyard Humanitarians! It was the most wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Angela, you are an inspiration to me and I am so appreciative of the opportunity that you gave to us today. You are making a difference and we are so proud to be a small part of that!"
