Review for CANDLE, Inc , Butler, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Well I did not start off being a volunteer my daughter's classroom had teacher night at the Reality Tour so I decided to take both my girls and on top of this all I am a police officer so I thought it would be beneficial for my girls. After the program I was very moved to what impact it had on my girls and on myself and hope they learned what can happen to you when you make a decision about drugs. The night I went they usually have a police officer that gives a talk at the end of the session and that day we attended they did not have one and someone else who volunteers knew I was a police officer so at the end of the night they asked me to give the talk and that is how my youngest daughter and I started volunteering and it's going on 3 years now.

I took both my girls to the Reality tour my youngest was getting extra credit and let me say it opened up my kids eyes. Even though I am a police officer I also learned a few things that night. Since that evening it opened up for myself and my youngest daughter to volunteer on a monthly basis and help out. There are things that all parents need to know and the instructors are always up on what is around the corner next. Even if you pick up on 1 thing it all will have been worth it. I encourage you to go with your son/daughter it won't disappoint.
