Review for DC Rape Crisis Center, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What a terrific organization! Great leadership and they really look for ways to prevent rape and change attitudes. I've been involved with them for 20 years and I'm astonished at how much they accomplish with little money.

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

wonderful, really caring and compassionate.

Review for American Natl Red Cross Alexandria Chapter, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

I think the people who volunteer with Red Cross are amazing. However, I'm very concerned that their national leadership at their Headquarters seems to be a revolving door. How many executive directors have they had in the past ten years? Five? Plus five interim? I wish them luck with their disaster work.

Review for Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic, Metropolitan Washington, DC Unit, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a volunteer reader at this location for 20 years. I really enjoyed it. They never say, "The volunteers are here, what should we do with them?" There's always a job. For people who love reading, this is great volunteer work and I highly recommend them.

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

amazing! I met my best friend here, and made friendships that I continue to enjoy. I met people I never would have met otherwise. This has been a very enriching experience.

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

Help many more disabled students who need to learn through listening.
