Review for DOWNTOWN WOMENS CENTER, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been volunteering with the DWC's Cooking Club program for six years. A group of people get together one evening, everyone brings ingredients, and cooks a meal for around 75 people to be served at lunch the next day. It's fun and it feels like I'm doing something specific and useful for people. I've also learned some great cooking tips. I recently got trained as a Kitchen Leader to help the DWC host even more Cooking Club groups. The DWC is a great place, which provides so many important resources for homeless women, including showers, P.O. boxes, a health clinic and computer classes.

Review for American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been volunteering with the Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles for almost five years. I give Preparedness Education presentations to community groups. It's really interesting to meet all of the different groups, and satisfying to feel that I've given them useful information. My Red Cross staff contacts have been great, and always let me know that I'm appreciated.

Review for MUCH LOVE ANIMAL RESCUE, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been volunteering with Much Love for the past six years. I adopted my two cats from them. This is a really dedicated, compassionate group. The animals always come first. We do homechecks with potential adopters to make sure it's a great fit for both human and pet. Much Love has no facility, and exactly one part-time employee, so any money we raise goes directly to the animals. I'm really proud to be part of this rescue.

Review for Best Friends Animal Society, Kanab, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I visited Best Friends in Utah a few years ago and was extremely impressed. Their facilities are terrific and the animals are obviously well-loved. They have several great jobs for volunteers. I socialized puppies, walked dogs, cleaned runs and took one dog on an all-day field trip to Coral Pink Dunes state park. At home in Los Angeles, Best Friends provides great support for the animal rescue group I regularly volunteer with. I'll be walking in their Strut Your Mutt fundraiser in September. The people at Best Friends really care about animals and take a lot of positive action.
