I volunteered for them approx. 5 years ago when they ran a drive for a little girl with cancer. The staff were very passionate about what they were doing. In fact i would feel comfortable saying that the way they interacted with the family, you would think they were related. It really made me feel good about what i was doing. I really felt that i was making a difference.
