RIDDLE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
April 6, 2010

I had a sprained ankle once a couple of years ago, and the Physician's Assistant who took care of me in the ambulatory ER was really wonderful. I was rushing to get to Riddle in the first place because my grandmother was very ill in the hospital. The PA's name took great care of me, made sure that she did not miss any hidden fractures, and let me take a wheelchair upstairs to see my grandmother. The advice she gave me and the care she gave me were incredibly helpful!

The Great!

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

the medical care I have received as well as the attention I was given

Ways to make it better...

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

revamp their Emergency Department. It all looked rather temporary and transient.

More feedback

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

having someone bandage my ankle and foot so well and with such care

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

very caring and compassionate, very friendly

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

redo its Emergency Department, do more outreach in the community, and grow

Ways to make it better...

the wait for an x-ray was shorter

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

maintaining a static base of donors as the community around them changes

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

the people were very apologetic about the wait and made every effort to help me handle the pain, etc.

Animal Coalition of Delaware County
April 6, 2010

I started volunteering with ACDC in October of 2008. When I started, I was impressed with the different levels of involvement available to people. Of course, I wanted to get very involved right away! Working on the marketing committee and learning about dog intake from the president of the group, no less, has shown me that they have a very clear-cut plan of action for rescuing animals in the area, they have a lot of people who are very passionate about their cause, and they love for new volunteers to dive right in and get involved! With the Facebook fan page, I saw an opportunity that I thought I might be good at, and they let me do whatever I wanted on it, right from the start! With regards to the animals, all of our dogs, small animals, and most of our cats (minus the PetSmart Adoption Center rotation) are in foster homes. ACDC's intake coordinators are fantastic about catering to what the foster parents can handle. If an animal is ever too much, they find another home. When I can, I hope to foster, too!

The Great!

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

volunteering; also, ACDC has let me funnel my desire to rescue dogs in desperate situations

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

The people (all volunteers!) are so passionate about their cause and are so welcoming of new ideas and new people!

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

wonderfully knowledgeable, caring, and always had a funny story or 5 to share about the animals who have crossed their paths.

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

open a very large shelter for itself and branch out geographically in terms of the animals they rescue.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
