Review for Board Of Religious Organizations, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Each year our volunteers work over 30,000 hours to provide holiday gifts for over nearly 4,000 children in need in the St. Louis area. We have 15 volunteers who work year round and 50 or more volunteers who work during our toy distribution days or on special projects throughout the year. We work with 25 Social Service agencies in the St. Louis area to screen clients. We also provide layettes for new moms in need.

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

using my "gifts" to give back to the community

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

friendly, caring and fun!

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

buy warehouse space to organize toys and gifts and provide a "shopping space" for families to choose gifts. A large work area for reconditioning toys, work area for volunteers to sew or make gifts. Hire some qualifited staff to organize and advertise.

Ways to make it better...

we could provide opportunities for younger volunteers to participate.

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

providing volunteers opportunities for younger participants, generating "new" fund raising events.

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

I enjoy the work I do with the BRO, but more help is always needed to help the families in need in the St. Louis area.
