Over 20 years ago, a friend asked me if, as a CPA, I would donate my time to prepare a tax return for a new non profit start-up that collected usable, but discarded corporate inventory and distributed it to the poor. That decision was one of the best I have made in my long history of volunteering with non profit organizations. I am so proud and humbled to be able to participate as a Board Member and Treasurer, and see the efficiency and care in all areas of the operation provided by its dedicated and creative staff. I have volunteered as a clothing sorter several times, and heartily recommend this experience to friends and family who are looking for a good place to give back. I am impressed with the courtesy, respect and friendship extended to each volunteer. Over 80,000 volunteer hours were recorded in 2011 alone.
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
Will you tell others about this organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
