Review for RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF PROVIDENCE INC, Providence, RI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House of Providence at a time when I was looking for an environment in which I could contribute meaningfully and interact with pleasant, interesting people. Having had contact with the house in NYC, I knew and was in sync with the mission and non-sectarian approach here. After retiring from a career directing a school and counseling and working with young families, the Ronald McDonald House has encouraged me to use my abilities and experiences in a wonderful variety of different ways. My life is considerably richer for being able to help families from every segment of our society at a vulnerable period in their lives.

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

the clear sense of purpose of the organization and the appreciation and value the staff shows to volunteers every day.

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

positive, friendly and (unusually) professional for a mostly volunteer organization.

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

lose its uniqueness.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteered.
