Testimonials

 

“Dear People Who Care ,

 

I’m a Property Service Officer for Housing Authority and I just wanted to thank you for all the help you provided to one of our elderly families who lost their home and possessions to a fire in their home. Our clients lost everything and were lucky to have escaped without harm (grandfather, grandmother and grandchild).

When I arrived onsite I saw the family huddled up trying to keep warm in their car with only their pyjamas on.

I called your Midland office and spoke with your CEO Ali White who without hesitation offered our tenants clothing, bedding, kitchen ware etc. at no cost.

I’m happy to see an organization whose actions speak louder than words and am grateful for the work you do as you’re needed more than you know.

Thank you.”

Adam Sahin

 

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the PWC Gardening team who did a lovely job on my garden today.

Thanks again” – Brenda Schilling

 

 

Dear People Who Care,

How can I begin to thank you for my gardening maintenance. I have never had so much done for me. Just what the team did for me was better than winning the lotto. To Brian, Kathy, Keith & Dan the biggest thank you, you worked so hard and were fantastic, happy people. It was such a pleasure to have you take care of my garden, it looks great and I can’t believe my eyes. People Who Care are such a huge part of my life, I could never have survived without your care.

You lifted me up when I was really down and gave me a purpose to be happy again. I love you all.

My very best wishes to you all and may God always hold you in the palm of his hand.

Love Beth Adams
