My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Meals On Wheels Of Lehigh County, Inc., Allentown, PA, USA
I am a volunteer with many organizations, but my favorite is Meals on Wheels. It's been a family affair with 9 members of my extended family having served as volunteers---one was a driver until age 92! Volunteering with Meals on Wheels is a family tradition that has proven to be very rewarding---for the clients, but also for us individually. There is nothing more important to a person struggling with issues of health or of aging than to see a smiling face each day, to hear a friendly "hello", and to receive nutritious and tasty food brought by a volunteer.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
observing the smiling faces of clients as I greet them; hearing a "thank-you" from appreciative clients; and knowing that over 350 Lehigh County residents are in better health.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
Each time I volunteer I return home more appreciative of how blessed I am with good health, a comfortable home, and plenty of food to eat.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Humbled by the positive attitude of so many clients who are in difficult situations.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
