Review for Innvision Shelter Network, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at the Food Closet for the last year and a half. I have known about it and its service to the community since its inception. Before coming to the Food Closet - and continuing to the present - I have helped raise money for the Opportunity Center and am a coordinator for the Hotel de Zink, housed at my church during the month of March.

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

Sense of community with other volunteers.

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

caring, compassionate, firm, helpful.

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

give significant to unhoused individuals and families in our community.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of anything - this is the highlight of my week!

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

Lack of donations during the economic downturn.

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

Perhaps volunteers could visit middle school and high school groups to explain the needs of this community (ex. food drives should go throughout the year, not just during the holidays; clothing needs, etc) and get them involved/engaged

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
