I joined my parish SVDP conference less than a year ago. I have & continue to work in a number of other volunteer orgs since I retired. Without question I have found this the most rewarding experience in my lifetime. We channel near 100% of the donations received from parish members to those in need with a minimum of bureaucry. Several times a month going into people's homes, reviewing their needs, making recommendations for long term solutions, praying with them & keeping them from being evicted or their lights& heat turned off is truly a miraculous experience. One especially poignant example was an elderly woman, a Muslim Afgan refugee, who likely would have died if she had lost electricity for her breathing machine.
