A joy to volunteer here. THe volunteer organizer and the regular volunteers were all friendly and helpful and excited to have us there. THey provided plenty of water and a hot-dog lunch with the residents. THeir mission is very admirable and they are doing very good work.
I greatly enjoyed working the day at Annunciation Maternity Home. Volunteering is very rewarding regardless of the organization with which one works, but AMH was particularly well organized and direction for the activities were planned in advance which made the work flow run tremendously smooth and our group accomplished a lot. We also received a tour of the campus and briefing of the mission. I look forward to working with this great group again.
