I have been working for Plan of PA for two years as a once a week volunteer. I mostly do the filing of the bills that are paid for their clients. I work with a very conscientious staff that are dedicated to their job. They work as a team under the guidance of an Executive Director. They are all very caring individuals. These employees really care about the people that they help everyday.
