I donated an item for this year's auction and was impressed by how committed their volunteers were. I am glad I helped them and look forward to hearing more about them.

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

committed and cared about the mission.

I send them a check every year for their holiday appeal. I read their newsletter and tell my friends about them because they do important work.

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

hearing about their good work.

While I very much admire the work Fair Tide does in the community in the area of homelessness prevention and transitional housing, I appreciate the Fair Tide Thrift Store. The Fair Tide Store does a number of things for the community including act as a resource for recycling, a revenue source for Fair Tide's programmatic work, and an outlet for all sorts of merchandise priced rigtht. I feel good knowing that the items I donate to the Fair Tide Thrift Store benefit the community in so many different ways.

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

that the staff are extraordinarily friendly and very appreciative of my contributions. It's a nice to give to a good cause, but even nicer when it is recieved with a smile.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide housing to many more families and individuals in need of homes.

As a donor I appreciate the valuable community service that Fair Tide offers. They go above and beyond the "handout" - instead they offer a helping hand which is infinitely more valuable. They help families get back on their feet, enabling them to once again become productive members of the community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

enable every family who has fallen on hard times return to productivity and a restored sense of self-esteem.
