Volunteering with NIFB during my year and a half of unemployment was one of the only bright spots. Their Volunteer Coordinators, Rachel and Tia, were amazing to work with, organized, and informative. The supervisors were always patient and appreciative. The other volunteers were a joy to be around. I felt a true commaraderie and sense of purpose. NIFB's existence is such an important one to the community and worthy of anyone's time or monetary commitment.
