Our team - Harsh Bagdy (Founder), 3 volunteer Board Members and 4 high school volunteers.
Founder/CEO – Harsh Bagdy is a Junior at C. Leon King High School. From a young age, Harsh has been passionate about giving back to the community. In elementary school he worked with his dad to raise funds to build an astro-turf soccer field for the school. In middle school, he facilitated the donation of 72 lockers to the new school at Metropolitan Ministries. He also secured a donation of computers and monitors and helped build a computer lab at his middle school so kids could take the FCAT exams. Harsh came up with the idea of his Charity when he heard his mom who is a physical therapist, talk about the lack of resources for mobility and self-care devices for patients who were underserved and underinsured.

Thank You to Our Community Partners
“We are so privileged to witness and be part of the blessing of His miracles!
When we see their eyes transform from despair to hope right before us; it is the fuel that fills our hearts with Cinergy, to go purposely beyond our comfort zones.
Harsh…… words cannot express! This passionate 16 year old young man is beyond amazing. You can feel his love, passion and compassion in his peaceful humbleness. And yes! It is not typo. He is 16.
It is so humbling to receive this honor to serve; which is guided by HIS love in our mission and vision.”
Metropolitan Ministries Family
“Harsh, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart and Charity Health Resources for helping me help a family. Today, we helped a family with your help, so Jordan could get a wheelchair. Jordan has never had his own wheelchair and he hasn’t been able to go places, just something as simple as going outside and because of your heart and because of your foundation, we were able to do that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart
I told you when I met you, you were my hero and I have to say it again - you are 16 years old with a heart of gold and I admire you for that. Thank you so much for giving back to the community and I tell you that from the bottom of my heart. I am a mother of three I have a 16 year old as well and let me tell you, this is just amazing. You mom and you dad did an amazing raising you. Keep up the good work, keep up the grades, there is a purpose for you. I am blessed, so amazingly blessed to have met you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
