Review for COMMUNITY CLOTHES CLOSET INC, Menasha, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a wonderful organization run by an excellent director and board. Clothing is donated by individuals and companies and is provided at no cost to clients referred by other nonprofits. Clients may come twice a month to "shop" for their families. Special event clothing is provided for weddings and quincienerras. One complete professional outfit, including underclothes and jewelry, is provided for job interviews. Once a job is obtained, 3 more complete outfits are provided. In the late summer there is a "Back to School" event w/ new outfits, shoes and school supplies for students.

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

professional and caring.

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

give every man, woman and child in Wisconsin a warm coat and dry boots every winter and have a new, well fitting bra for every woman interviewing for a job.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & I admitted eligible clients and assisted them in selecting clothing for job interviews.

Review for NATIONAL CENTER FOR PUBLIC POLICY RESEARCH INC, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Be VERY careful before giving money to this organization. You will be swamped by mail and they do not honor requests to be removed from mailing lists.

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

retire all officers to Boca Raton

Ways to make it better...

this outfit did not exist

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

Postal laws preventing scams

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

RUN do not walk away from their mail!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  General Member of the Public & returned their mail.
