WhyHunger
December 22, 2009

I have been involved with Would Hunger Year since about 1992. I have watched it grow and get better and more important every year. I was working when I first started, but have retired since. Once I heard that so many were without, mostly through what Harry Chapin talked about, it got me do do what I can. I work in a soup kitchen, feed people living at the train station and for a local food pantry. WHY had shown me that it was needed. It all goes back to World Hunger Year.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my life, in what I do with my free time and how WHY has helped so many.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work a little more on Long Island where I am.

More feedback

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

working with great people doing a great job that is so important.

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

the best. Every year I see a lot of the same people and met new ones who I now get to work and talk with. When I first started I was the one that was worked with and talked to.

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

our world " a better place to be". It could help so many, especially during this hard economic time.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't have to take the train to get there, and they had that $10 millian bucks. That is really it. I have no problems.

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

helping people to see how important they and their work is and getting money in this time of economic craziness.

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

they are so important and do so much. If I had it and extra they would get the 10 millian bucks.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
