I am a leader of a 7th grade bible study group. This is now our second year before Christmas to come serve together as a group. Both experiences were great. The Rice Depot staff found tasks they could complete that they enjoyed doing. And the girls felt like they were doing something that mattered. The staff stayed in evening hours to make this possible as well. Another thing I appreciated was the description of the programs. Most of these girls haven't been close to being in need and so it is an eye opener for them to realize that people nearby have basic needs. It makes me thankful that the Rice Depot works to fill real needs in the community and provides outlets for people of all ages to serve in.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I know what I'm working on or doing is part of something larger and that is meets real needs of people in my community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and flexible. They worked around our schedule to come even though it meant working different hours. They spent time planning out the project for the girls to work on. I could tell they believed in what they were doing as well.

My experience with volunteering at the Arkansas Rice Depot was very rewarding. This was my second time volunteering. I work in the downtown area of Little Rock and often see the homeless individuals. It's heartbreaking to see my fellow brothers and sisters out in the cold with nothing to eat. Our Youth Dept at my church, New Creation Bapt Church, was looking for a way to help out. After seeing an article in the newspaper about volunteers at the Arkansas Rice Depot, I thought this would be good for our youth. We took about 10 youth and their parents one Sat. and rolled our sleeves up and got to work. Our kids were so excited to be helping, I don't think they wanted to go home. The Arkansas Rice Depot also has a Backpack Program for hungry children in the Arkansas schools and I can't wait to be a part of that also. Please endorse the Arkansas Rice Depot and help feed more hungry! Thanks

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could better help the children in the schools that don't food to eat on the weekends when school is not in session.

Ways to make it better...

My experience would have been better if I would have had more time, so I could finish the task I started. But I will go back and help as often as I can.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

More exposure so more volunteers can come in and help.
