I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have seen the overwhelming response from the staff and children when they enter their library. Each center has a dedicated Director and staff eager to support our efforts. The foundation has created libraries that make a significant contribution to the communities they service. Parents are so impressed with the libraries that they consider this when registering their children to the various sites.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
seek, in this difficult economy, to double efforts to raise the money needed to support this worthy foundation. Seeing first hand all the benefits that Books for Kids offers to so many youngsters, I would try to reach out to many more people so that we could restock and keep our beautiful libraries up to date with all of the latest books.
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
I would say that the biggest challenge facing this organization is gaining more support and contributions to keep the foundation growing and current. We must work hard to improve and support our current libraries and create additional funding for new books and materials.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
I would like to say THANK YOU to Books for Kids, who through their commitment, support and encouragement have inspired us to volunteer our help over the years. We have seen your growth as an organization and are proud to be a part of a very worthy foundation.
