I have been involved with One Brick for five years. I love the flexibility of volunteering opportunities. I also appreciate that I can take a break when life becomes too hectic. Through One Brick, a whole new world of non-profit organizations has opened up to me, some of which I volunteer on my own. I personally enjoy events that serve the non-profits' clientele directly like Inspiration Cafe. I also love volunteering at the Greater Chicago Food Depository with One Brick (in fact, that's where I discovered One Brick!). After being on the leadership team for a few years, I have come to know a very dedicated group of leaders and volunteers who I like to socialize with at events and outside of One Brick.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my own personal growth and decided to change careers to the non-profit sector.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
want a more concerted effort to get the word out. We're not that great at self-promotion.
Volunteer & My past few experiences: packed emergency food boxes, helped take tickets at a festival, escorted nursing home residents to Annual picnic.
