My $25,000 was well used. Penny pinching is a virtue at NHSCamden and the value of every cent is measured against its impact and positive outcome. I even added Good Search to donate while I am shopping.

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

Encourage less humility and more bravado.

Time well spent fundraising. I hope the Camden Kids Preschool and Community Learning Center becomes a real green building in Camden City by 2015. It will become a hub that will positively impact the health, education, environment, wealth, and housing choices of Camdenian families.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
