My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Operation Care Pckage, Inc., Joliet, IL, USA
I have been a volunteer for Operation Care Package for 10 years and I can sum it up by saying THIS IS THE REAL DEAL!
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.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
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!
