Reviews for Irving Cares

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at Irving Cares for only a short time but it has been a very rewarding experience. I have been amazed at the work that is put into ensuring that the pantry is stocked with all the appropriate food groups.....nothing is left to chance! Irving Cares does great work to assist our neighbors in need! I am proud to be a part of it.

I have been volunteering at Irving Cares for 6 years. I find it very rewarding to serve the people of Irving that need a hand up.

I love volunteering at Irving Cares. The staff is energetic and extremely caring, with a definite mission : helping residents of our city who find themselves temporarily in need. It is most rewarding to help my fellow citizens in myriad ways at a high-quality local food pantry. The clients are appreciative because they know we are all there for them. Our job is big; the staff is relatively small, but they get the job done every single day with a home-town feeling and approximately 200 happy volunteers.
I've volunteered four years since I retired, and I hope to lend a helping hand for a long time.

I have worked about one and a half years as a volunteer who first greets clients at the door and prepares them and their files before they meet the hard-working Case Managers. This organization does so much wth relatively few staff members. The staff ministers to a large number of Irving clients, trains 100+ volunteers like me, organizes and maintains a great food pantry, communicates with local organizations like the city, schools, churches, and other like-minded social services, has fundraising events, etc. Each and every staff member is serious, caring, and professional. They have been great and welcomed me into their family of hope and service to others. If I could give Irving Cares 10 stars, I would. ~~ S. G., Retired Educator

I work at Irving Cares weekly in the Food Pantry and enjoying seeing all the people both with and without families, and those that have homes and are homeless receive the help they need to get them through at a low point in their life.
Several people have actually shed tears when we have given them food so thankful to have something in their stomach. I am thankful through Irving Cares people can get help in desperate times.

When we wanted to find a way to assist in our community, we could not have done better than to volunteer at Irving Cares. This organization does remarkable and lasting work in Irving, and it does so with remarkable care and attention to every dollar. We know how fortunate we are to be able to serve with this outstanding group and, through them, see good things happen in the city where we live.

Volunteering at Irving Cares is a pleasure. It is an organization that truly cares for people in need. The staff is the greatest. It is fun serving them and watching their faces when they receive their food.

It has been a very rewarding experience volunteering at Irving Cares. When individuals encounter hard times, they know there is a community based facility that will help them out. Irving Cares can help with food, finances, and referrals. It is all good!

I have been volunteering at Irving Cares for a few weeks and have been very impressed by the quality of the services provided and the dedication of the staff and volunteers. There is a genuine commitment to helping those in need and also directing them to other resources available in the community. It has been a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

It's all good!

I am a fairly new volunteer having only been with Irving Cares a little over a year. The reason I picked this Non Profit, is because it is not intended as a way of life, but a helping hand thru a little bump in life's roads.

I have been a volunteer at Irving Cares for about 10 years. A strong staff and many many dedicated non paid volunteers who treat clients with dignity and respect. I'm proud to be a small part of this fine organization. I enjoy being both a donor and volunteer.

I volunteer at the Irving Cares Food Pantry and have for several years. I just LOVE doing it. I can clearly see the need in the people who come there. And love to see the joy when they receive their food. Especially enjoy seeing joy on the little children's faces. I know that I am doing something good and sometimes feel like I get more out of it than the clients. Will be doing this for a LONG time, I pray.
