Review for Keren Simchas Chosson V'Kallah, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a make-up artist that often work with this organization (offering special rates!) so I am present from the beginning of the day until the start of the reception. I saw anything taken care of ranging from emergency repair of the bride gown zipper; parents of brides and groom often coming from out of town and unfamiliar with the surroundings getting suddenly sick a few hours before the wedding and having to be taken to local physician for emergency treatment; enabling to be present to the wedding; brides and grooms with split families not even talking to each other brought all together for the sake of the bride and groom... (entered by GreatNonprofits staff member on behalf of reviewer)

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Honestly- down to heart help. -genuine will to help people -extreme problem solving (with a smile) skills -total experience much beyond the physical technicality (often very trying) that can happen on a wedding day - often people need major moral support

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

(cont. from above)if don't have a family, or a dysfunctional or a non supportive one and there are thousands of pactical etail that people are not even aware of, or not able to carry through! staff were... friendly, courteous, efficient, competent

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help many more stable families to be formed and take many more families out of debt - great asset to society!

Ways to make it better...

They can hire more help, like a driver to chauffeur the family around, sponsor more of the necessity of the day for all the family (make-up, wedding outfits etc)

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funds

One thing I'd also say is that...

keep up the good work!
