Know How Network
May 23, 2011

When I retired in 2010 I spent some time thinking about the next phase of my life. I have been very blessed and I really wanted to give back. I started looking for a volunteer organization that could utilize my skills and would help me help others. The Know How Network was my link to the needs of the community. Since this is a project based organization I can assist many non-profits and still have flexibility - the best of both worlds. I highly recommend this organization.

I would keep in better communication with the volunteers as to projects available. Communication is always an improvement opportunity in every organization and with so much need I believe they should be in better contact with their volunteers.
