The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Debbie Smothers, founder is the most positive & caring person. She has sent care packages to my closest friends while they were deployed & all the members of their units. She even sent a computer to a close friend when his broke down! Recently one of my friend's unit lost everything during a firefight, and she sent over 30 large boxes of supplies to help them out. Her efforts helping my friends & countless others has touched me in a way that words cannot express.

Ways to make it better...

I would hope that they could get a larger building & more donations. They would be able to do even more & would!!

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Nothing - it has been 100% pleasure volunteering for them, and my most rewarding experience.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

OH YES!! Absolutely! When I first offered to do the website, it was out of necessity and I had only the most basic knowledge of html, graphics, etc. It has been so rewarding to me, because over the years I have learned so much while trying new things for the website. Not to mention, people who I've never met who I consider "best friends"!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

This has been and continues to be probably the best and most rewarding experience of my life!

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Initially, I sent cards, letters and items for the care packages, but have been volunteering handling the website, graphics, slideshows, some videos, etc.
